I need to replace my 7800gt because it freezes up playing directx games, makes me disconnect if playing online. I'm super rich so I was looking at the geforce 210 since its in my budget(less than $50).
I'm currently playing games like Quake Live, Trackmania, and Starcraft 2, the only newer games that look interesting are portal 2 and Rage. Just wondering if the 210 will work for me.
My awesome pc specs:
Athlon 4000+ 2.4ghz
2gb DDR2 ram
A DDR3 9500GT is the same as an overclocked 8600GTS. Those were around the speed of the 7900GS, which is probably close to the 7800GT. In other words a DDR3 9500GT probably isn't faster then your current card, but at the same time it won't be slower. It will use less power and emit less heat so thats good. If you can find a used 8800GT that would be a step up. I'd definitely hit the used forums to see what you can find.
