Hi,
What is the minimum AGP video card needed for Civ IV to play smoothly? The game plays nice on my X800Pro (except for the globe view), but is completly unplayable on my brother's FX5200 even on lowest settings possible. Minimum system requirements stated by game developers are GeForce 2/Radeon 7500 lol :D .
Our systems are:
My : P4 2.8Ghz Northwood + X800Pro (16pipe) + 2GB RAM
Bro: Athlon XP 2600+ + FX5200 + 1GB RAM
BTW in future this card would be used to play Heroes of M&M V too :) .

It plays fine on my frined's 4200. 1024x768 and high settings (I think).

The 5200 was a really crap card in some versions, but I didn't think it was that bad. Maybe something else is wrong with his system?

Anyways, what card to buy really depends on how much money you have to spend, since practicaly any new card will play CIV fine.
