Hello, I have a Amd Fx53, 430w antec truepower, and a X800xt pe agp graphics card.I am currently playing COD4 on 800x600 settings, but I desire more. I have read the forums, and the X1950 pro looks like a good option. However I would like more opinions on the positive/ negatives on this card.
If that is the original Truepower 430W you are running low on 12v power for a X1950 pro with a single 20 amp rail. If it's a truepower 2.0 with dual 17 amp rails you should be fine and the X1950 pro is a good choice for that game.
You may want to consider the HD2600XT which consumes less power and is cheaper in AGP. But as far as I know COD4 isn't a game it excels at. Other new games it matches the X1950 pro without fsaa but falls behind with fsaa.
Thank you again! I have the original. I really do not want to push my luck with the 1950 pro.I plan to upgrade next year, and I just wanted something to play COD4 on med. settings. Can you recommend another card, other than the ati 2600, that would give me a good boost.
