Plz Recomend a graphics card for Warhammer

Currently I'm running an AMD 2800+, 2 gigs of ddr2 ram, a Geforce 8500 and XP. I threw warhammer onto my system yesterday and it running very poorly even on minimal graphics settings. I’m thinking I might want to get a new video card any recommendations, I want something that can handle larger keep sieges. My mobo has a pci express slot.

  1. what PSU do you have?
  2. Here's a list of grapic card benchmarks for Warhammer online.

    from what The Proximon posted in an earlier thread the keep sieges will seriously impact frame rates.
  3. I had a AMD X2 4200+ and a 7900 GS when I started playing Warhammer. Very poor performance with min settings@1440x900. I upgraded to a 9800gtx+ and saw some performance gains, though still unplayable in keep sieges, I'm talking sub 10fps in min settings@1440x900. If you OC your CPU you will get much more performance out of warhammer. I ended up OCing my 4200+ from 2.2ghz to 2.5ghz, though still the game was unplayable in keep sieges@min settings.

    I upgraded to a i7 920 and, even at stock speeds, I can run at High Quality with frames from 40-99 fps on 1920x1080 (got a new monitor) with my 9800gtx+. In high # keep sieges, I'm talking 150+ on each side, my frames can drop to 30 fps. Still HQ and 1920x1080.

    Believe me, you will see much better gains by upgrading your CPU! of course that means a lot of $$$... but you won't see much gains if you upgrade your video card alone.

    Basically a new GPU will boost your frames at times when not much is going on, but your CPU will cripple you when lots of things are going on (you know what i mean).
