The more I read the more confused I get. I want the best graphic card I can get for $200 or less (512 or 1GB). I’m not a geek and I really need advise. Any suggestions/recommendations are greatly appreciated. The reason for a better graphic card is the I like the Microsoft Flight Simulator X and I’m only getting about 5 to 10 FPS.
CPU: Intel® x86 Duel Core 3400 Mhz
Mother Board: Intel ® D925XCV/XBC
Ram Memory: 3GB
OS: Windows XP Pro, SP3
Graphics Card: Radeon X800 XT
Hard Drive SATA RAID 596.17GB
Power Supply: Don’t know and don’t know how to find out.
Thanks for the recommendations. I hadn't thought about upgrading my CPU, but I guess that will be the next step. Thanks again, I really appreciate the help.
Yeah a cpu upgrade never hurts, more as to a thought on the gpu, I'd personally go with the Ati Hd 4800 series great cards all of them I currently own one. I have had many in the past all ati. There are cheap and dependable, dont confuse cheap with crap ati is da bomb. Oh and btw make sure you find out what psu u have that really matters when buying a card could be the diff between really happy and very sad, good luck.
