its depends on what kind of games u plan on playing. if u plan on playing doom 3 or half-life 2 taht will not get u by. whats r u pc specs. i have a geforce 4 ti 4200. if i were u go with the gerofre 5600 fx utral. make sure it is the utral becuase it suxs otherwise. it is about the same price at a ti 4200.
Sounds like Sazar-bait to me Actually, if you want serious Half-Life 2 or Doom III performance, a Radeon 9700 can be had for $200, but no high powerered card will perform well with a slow processor. I recommend upgrading both.
But yes, if you don't play a lot of the newer games, there's no reason to upgrade.
or find a good deal on a 9500pro and buy that.. in most situations the 9500pro is faster than the 9600pro... (mainly due to architecture) but the 9600pro does have a reputation as one of the best overclocking cards out there..
if you arent a hardcore gamer, your computer will last you at least a few more months yet. Im keeping mine the way it is with a Geforce 2 MX, 1.4Ghz and 512mb SD RAM until after Xmas, then spring sale.. upgrading
Maybe a Radeon 9000 Pro or a Geforce FX 5200. They are just a class down, but they can be had for $70 or less.
By the way, cs-cky, this statement is unreasonable and lacks any substance whatsoever. I've had an ATI 7500 and a 9700 that worked just fine, and had zero performance and compatibility issues. I would never say NVidia is crap because they make great products as well, and ATIs are just as good. I'm getting a 9800 this summer

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
