Unolocogringo a b U Graphics card November 18, 2002 11:01:40 AM I would suggest a G4 4200. They caan be had for a little over $100US and would still be good for a processor upgrade later on. Your 800 will not max it out but it will take a lot of processes from the cpu. Which will give you good frame rates because the cpu has less work to do. I aint signing nothing!!!

Crashman a b U Graphics card November 18, 2002 10:17:36 PM I'd get a Radeon 8500, the full version is under $100, and it's a better card than the Ti4200. <font color=blue>You're posting in a forum with class. It may be third class, but it's still class!</font color=blue> Ghostdog November 19, 2002 5:33:04 AM Just curious, why do you think the 8500 is a better card than the 4200, Crashman? Just because of DirectX 8.1 support? The Ti4200 performs better than the 8500 at default and is a better overclocker. <font color=red>I´m starting to feel like a real computer consultant.</font color=red> Crashman a b U Graphics card November 19, 2002 11:10:43 AM They perform about equally, 8500 has 8.1 support, I think Trueform will continue to be added to new games, and the 8500 has better TV-out. <font color=blue>You're posting in a forum with class.
