  • Vid Card Help

    Alright, the time has come to upgrade my graphics card. I currenty have an ATi Radeon 9200SE wich no longer meets my strict requirements

    My budget is just about anything because my dad is paying, but I doubt he'll spring for a $350+ graphics card

    so, what do ya'll recommend/use yourselves?

            well, offers open untill someone buys it.

            alright, I have a question, does anti-aliasing really make a big difference?

              I think anti-alliasing reduces jaggies, so more aa less jaggies.

                  With basic 2X AA enabled





                  Without AA





                  ... I'll leave it up to you to decide, but for me, AA is one of those things I would refuse to live without.

                        Can you tell me if you need a AGP or a PCI-E card? That should help me narrow down your search. I just bought a BFG 6600GT OC AGP from newegg and it handles fs2004 like a piece of cake.

                          I need an AGP card, no PCI-E for me!

                          ^anyone know if this card is any good?

                          If that one isnt any good I might get the 6600GT OC

                            the fx5500 seems decent but you could get this one thatI have in my machine. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143027


                            Although it might be higher b/c it is going to be shipped to canada. If you dont mind, could you post your comp specs? Also make sure you have atleast a 400w power supply.
