Do other computer specifications need to be taken into consideration when looking at video cards.
My computer at the moment is approx 3 years old now...and reading the specs on it ..it is or has
* Pentium 4 processor 540 with Hyper threading technology, 3.20GHz, 1MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB, 90nm
* 512 MB 400MHz DDR SDRAM memory..which has had 2Gb added to it...(but what the specs on the extra 2Gb are.. I have no idea),
* 160GB , 7200RPM Serial ATA hard drive
and the current card
* ATi Radeon X300 Se, PCI-Express graphics with TV-out port and 128MB DDR video memory.
Now most of that means very little to me..(hard drive i know is the space available to me to store files etc..and memory is what makes it "speed along" so too speak) but does the other info make any difference to the type of card you recommended?
Many thanks for your or anyone elses help..
