My friend has an ancient Dell PC, with 2.5GHz P4, and 512MB RAM.
At the moment he's still using the original integrated graphics.
He installed Counter-Strike: Source the other day and it wouldn't even load.
The min specs for the game are only 1.2GHz Processor, 256MB RAM so i assume it's the integrated graphics that's the issue.
The problem is his motherboard doesn't have a PCI-E slot, just PCI.
So i'm wondering what's the best PCI card you can get these days.
(I'd prefer something ATI just because i have more experience with them)
I installed a PCI 6200 card in a friends Dell, he noticed no difference in his FPS in games he was playing over the integrated graphics. You might look at this hierarchy chart and see if any PCI cards would give better performance. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,...
