I have a L7VMM2 motherboard and a 2400+ processor, and 1Gb RAM. I would like to get a decent GFX card. Would the 9800 pro or the 6800 LE work on this motherboard, as it has a 133FSB. I hope that makes sense and I would appreciate any advice given.
Providing you have an active AGP slot free and a spare molex power connector then it will run fine not at it best but still well enough.
As for which graphics card @ £150 6800LE/6600 GT are the only choices here returning scores of 7,500+ 3DMark03 compared to 5,500 - 6,000 for the Radeon 9800Pro Also shader 3.0 support it dances on the 9800Pro from a far.
Hope that helps. Also that site is great for comparing GF cards and other hardware. Dont just take the benchmark scores, as they are not really what a game is about. Its best to look at the FPS in the game ratings.
The FX5900 is a great card (£180 when I got it, but probably much lower now). It works with all current games prefectly, with high frame rates and the comp crashes much less since I replaced the ATI (9600 I think). It may be starting to be grouped with the 'oldies' now, but I think its still a great card (it was 7th in the PCA top 10 for a while).
The 6600GT is an excellent budget card from what I have heard. As good as the 6800, but half the price.
