well i'm pretty budget right now but it's a definate upgrade from my ati 9600 pro. I seen on one of my local buy and sell websites that some one was selling this with cod2 and serious sam for 90 dollars.
i was going to buy an 3850 for 189.99 at ncix but this caught my eye. I heard these things can oc like mad.
How long till this card goes obsolete and if i can run COD4 well. I'm running XP.
buy it, don't listen to others, just do what your hard sais.
you want to know why? because i think that your system is pretty old like mine. and i wanted to buy it too, but i bought a 8600GT (never buy that one). you have to see if your system can handle it, i think it can, but beware if that 90$ card is an agp or pci-express. because the ati9200 was an agp card, is yours too? or are you talking about the PCI version?
pci i play on a pentium 4 630 3 ghz processor and 3 gigs of ram, and a 8600 gt, you can easily run cod4!
