I want to finally put a graphics card in an older (~around 4 years or so) computer now that my son has taken to World of Warcraft. (So he doesn't totally monopolize the new build I just completed!)
Pentium D 2.80 GHz
Intel 82945G Express chipset (Asus Mobo, just don't recall the model)
1 GB memory
I intend to add another 1 Gig of memory. But was wondering if anyone can recommend a PCI video card for as well under $100 as I could get away with. (Any other upgrade suggestions welcome, too, of course.)
With a decent quality 400 w power supply you have several good options. A 9600GT, a HD3870 or a HD4670. Other options would include a HD4830 and a 9800GT, but they'd be pushing your budget. I'd add 1GB of memory even with XP.
