Recently I have been experiencing problems with graphics card displaying and loading video content including DVD and YouTube so I guess my card is up the s#%t? I tried to uninstall driver and reinstall updated driver but without result. Even had issues loading Google Earth so out of frustration I uninstalled it.
Could anyone recommend best performing card for my system?
Microsoft Windows XP Pro.
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.4GHz.
1 GB of RAM.
AUSRock P4i65G Motherboard.
RADEON 9200 Series Graphics Card (PCI)
Or if you think it is not my graphics card and would recommend system tweak or otherwise I could have a crack at that before going onto graphics card purchase.
Yeah I know i'm running a dinosaur close to extinction but i don't have $1500 to buy a new system just to view some video content so your thoughts are appreciated.
Ok I've been trying all afternoon to get my hands on one of these HIS Radeon HD 4670 IceQ [H467QS1GHA].. No stocks available in Australia and amazon wont ship this product to Australia (not sure why? Perhaps some trade agreement or something) and eBay has a few used going on auction (probably overclocked and problematic).. Tried to contact some American retailers directly so waiting for a reply.. Oh and Newegg.com wont post to Australia off their shopping cart processing secure checkout but I will shoot them an email and see what they reply..
Is there an alternative to this AGP slotted card? What about PCI slotted cards? I have 3 PCI slots to play with
Ok I finally located: HIS IceQ H467QS1GHA Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card in Western Australia www.pcwest.com.au so awaiting delivery for that which cost me$178.00 AUD..
Also purchased 550W PSU from eBay seller gtaonline for $34.00 AUD..
You guys in USA get a better deals in terms of price and variety of goods/products.. We get hammered financially here for almost everything!
I'll update thread when I receive items and installed..
Yes. Increasing your main memory will help with overall performance of the system. Also, the main memory and the video card memory are completely independent from one another.
Ok I currently have Kingmax dual channel x 2 512 = 1GB in my AUSRock P4i65G Motherboard..
I looked in manual and does not specify max RAM nor a minimum.. Any suggestions on optimal performance or is it more a supply and demand scenario and user discretion but obviously there is a limitation to where performance is hindered and bottle necked?
Ok I jumped the gun before further research so I resolved the question, see bellow..
**Product specification at Ausrock website state: "Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB"**
