AGP Upgrade Tags: Graphics Cards World Of Warcraft Graphics Product Last response: April 14, 2010 1:22 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Mohgreen April 14, 2010 12:31:09 AM I'm looking at extending the life on my current PC another year till I can use my Tax refund to buy a new Quad-core machine. Currently, I'm running: AMD Athlon 64 4000+ 2.4ghz 1GB ram win XP GEForce 7300 GT (AGP) For internet/music etc its fine as is. I don't watch movies on my computer at all. For Gaming, namely World of Warcraft, it does ok, but the framerate drops into the basement when there are lots of people around/lots of effects and such. So. Instead of dropping 800-1000$ on a new machine, I thought I'd try putting in 100$ on a new video card. Looking at the chart here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,... My 7300 is fairly far down the chart. My first couple of choices from poking at Newegg and Tigerdirect: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Any thoughts? Better Recomendations? Am I buying too much card for an older machine?
