hello all,

I had planned on a pc overhaul for gaming, but an un-expected layoff from work put an end to that. I still wanna play, mainly crysis and the call of duty series with respectable settings, dont have to be extreme, i know its probably not possible with agp. But I could be outta work for up to two months or so, i gotta make do.

looking at this card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Radeon HD 4670 IceQ Video Card - 1GB GDDR3, AGP

From what ive looked at it should work, with a better PSU.

I have

3.2 gig intel
1.5 gig Ram


Again im hoping for decent resolutions with at least medium settings.

just looking for input before a likely purchase.

Thanks!

Well, if you play those game with low resolution then you can play it with decent setting,med or mostly lowest setting for crysis, at least you can play it...

You might want to do some research on drivers. The last time I looked into it, any AGP cards made above the 2X00 series were not officially supported by ATI. That meant that the user was at the mercy of the manufacturer to provide them with functional drivers. The drivers that were available weren't always stable or compatible with all games. In many cases they also trailed behind ATI driver releases by a few months.

This may have changed. It's still worth doing the research though, it would suck to get a graphics card and not be able to play the games you intend to.

Ive played through the game on a x1300 agp 1024- 768 all settings except physics and sound to low.Untill the Ice its playable , So Im hoping this card will make quite a difference.

I have read about the driver issues, it doesnt look like such a big deal though.

about these psu's to match

again money is an issue and coolermaster for 30$ only has three 4 pin connectors( need 4), can convert right?

All have good reviews but psu's that cheap seem kinda scary.


{edit}
Been doing a little research and seeing some of the later AGP cards they made had some compatibility issues with old equipment.Dont think its a problem but,
here is my pc

i know im a few months late but.. you can play crysis on medium to high .. mainly no eye candy .. lika aa. basically water and all that little stuff turned down .. i have an amd 3400 single core 2 gigs of ram .. and a x1950 pro and it lays games like far cry and crysis good.. you cna go high on detail but turn down aliasing and anisotropic filter down and shadows /decals and such.. and that card is better than my x1950

what i do with my rig is put everything at high detail . then start bumping the detail down on everything except detail/partical rate .. and try to get 25fps ave .. and thats on 1440x900.. if that wont work i start going down on resolution one step at a time

another option is going 64 bit if you can do it with your set up and get as much ram as possible.. and over clock..

its all fun to me trying to get as much as i can out of an older machine .. you would be surprised at what results you get .. most of the people who say you need to have everything on low are just talkin specs .. they dont really know ...i do

another thing is to unplug your internet and disable virus protection and everything else you can think of running in the back ground.. and over clock the &*^%(&*^ out of everything
