Dear all firstly i would like to say hello, i have joined this forum specifically to seek some advise regarding an upgrade i would like to make to my Dell. i have a Dimension XPS GEN 3, and i would like to upgrade the graphics card in it to a
HIS HD 2600XT IceQ Turbo 512MB GDDR3 PCIe Dual DVI
All this feed back is fantastick than you all... i have looked at al the cards you have advised me on, now i am just confused, so now here is a question to you all...the oridional card i was loking at has 256mb the cars that was recomended to me only has 256mbs so how is that going to be a faster card? please 4give me i realy do not understand theas things to well, i am like most people who see more ram there 4 faster card type thing.
however here is another question then... if momey wasnt to much of a problem, what would be the best card to go for - for The Dell Dimention XPS gen3 with 2gig of ram 3.4 mgz P4 prossesor, bearing in mind, i dont want a card that superseeds the computer, and the pc cannot utalise the card to its fullest potential.
there is no point in paying £250-£300 or so, for a card that is hamperd by the pc its self.
You people seam to know what u are talking about so i will go with what the majority tells me
TurboShane has recomended theX1950pro so far but that was bering in mind my budget
what has acused me to want a new card by the way is all baced on one game i have Crysis its real hot and i want to beable to apreciate the graphics on atleast the medium setting with faster frame raites, the game runs ok set to medium now but when the cool action bits kik in it jumps and becomen horid to play, even set to the low settings, it is a real pitty as this tytle fosters some real HOT visuals...
