Need suggestion for my graphics card

Hi all,

Current System:
AMD Athlon xp1600
256 mb DDR RAM (Plan to upgrade soon)
8x agp capable epox 8rda+ mobo

I realize that with my slower processor I won't be able to take advantage of the faster video cards on the market, but would like to get some suggestions on cards that I can get the most out of.

I'm mainly using the system for gaming, currently playing Star Wars Galaxies alot. Im using a Geforce2 w/ 64 mb right now and while its not terrible, the FPS drop pretty low sometimes.

If possible, I'd like some suggestions for cards around $100.

Thank you for your assistance.


Best Regards,
Gary Hendricks

  1. Around $100, get yourself a Geforce4 Ti4200

    But I *highly* recommend you drop the extra $40 or so and get yourself a Radeon 9600 PRO.
    Then you get DirectX 9 hardware (the Ti4200 is DirectX 8), and very fast Pixel and Vertex shaders. Much faster antialiassing, too.

    ------------------
    Radeon 9500 (hardmodded to PRO, o/c to 322/322)
    AMD AthlonXP 2400+ (o/c to 2600+ with 143 fsb)
