Graphics card

  The Sheep 12:34 17 Nov 2005

Hi all.

I have just bought a new PC which has I'm told a very good graphiocs card (cant remember what kind it work at the mo).

What i'm really looking for is can anyone recommend a site where i could check the capabilities of the card? I will be purchasing a few games for it at the end of the month but until then i would just like to see what the card is capable of.

Thanks people :)

It's a nice mid-range card; It'll play most of todays games in high detail and at high resolution. In the absence of a game the benchmarks will give you some idea what it can do, but don't get hung up on them. Whatever card you've got, there'll be a bigger, better, faster one released next month.
