I was wondering if you guys can give me some recomendations towards a GF card that would suit my brother's old PC.
I want to buy him a card that can handle games at an OK level, since i don't want to spend too much money because his computer is pretty old now. It is an AMD xp2000+, 768ram, a 128mb fx5500 and the MB only support 4X AGP.
I noticed he plays a lot of CS2, but the FX5500 doesn't seems to handle the game that well.
What do you guys think of these cards that i've been looking at?
Ati 9700pro (I can get one for about $90 Australian USED)
Ati 9800pro ($140 AUS used)
Ati 9600pro ($115 Aus NEW)
Nvidia 5700 ultra ($140 Aus used)
Nvidia 6600LE ($150 Aus new)
I would avoid the 9700 pro, they had a very high failure rate. Of the 3 i have 2 have been replaced and the third one is ready to die and will be replaced. Only good thing is that the 9700 pro built by ati has a 5 year warrenty. I have a 9800 pro as well and it never gave one minutes trouble.
