I want to know if my system will even handle a decent upgrade in video card.
Running XP home
AMD 1900+ (that will only run at 1200mhz... long time headache I cant seem to solve and AMD tech support shrugs off)
ECS K7S5A mainboard
currently running a geforce 2 GTS 32mb card.
If I upgrade my video card will I see an improvement in frames? I play mainly EQ and planetside, with a few single player games. Ive got only around 300 bucks to spend also which is why im considering just the vid card and not processor/mainboard.
Games like EQ use just as much processor power as video card. While a new video card will improve FPS, it would help to get a new processor as well. If youve got 300 I would suggest this. Radeon 9700 non pro - $220 and a Athlon 2100+ tbred b for $75
