I have a Motherboard with the Intel 845PE chipset (Dell Deminsion 4550) that has a system clock on 533 MHz and says it can handle 4x/@x modes at 1.5V AGP bus protocols. Right now I have a 256 DDR SDRAM and a GeForce 4 MX 440.
I want to upgrade the machine (I use it to play Dark Ages of Camelot Online). Right now I am getting lots of hard drive chugging (swap files most likely). So I am going to upgrade the Memory with a 512 Simm (any ideas would be greatly appreciated) and the Video card.
I was thinking of spending @$100US and was wondering what to do. Do I go with a Raedon 9200 or something of the like that is AGP 8x and Direct x 9.0 compliant. Or go with a GeForce TI 4200 that is AGP 4x and Direct x8.1. Or some other route?
