Graphics Card advive and help please.....

  ShorN 23:58 27 Jul 2003

I have had my pc now for 9 months and due to relative inexperience when I bought it,i didnt look to much into graphics.

I have a nvidia geforce 4 mx420 card and although its ok i really want to upgrade for the purpose of playing games ie Soldier of Fortune 2, and graphics work.

What do people recommend and the best place to buy? i have approx 100 ish budget so something around this mark would be good!

Also I have 512 ram would this be advisable to upgrade?

Any thoughts, suggestion, and help would be great?

For your budget, I would recommend a Geforce 4 Ti 4200. Try to get the 128mb one, as this graphics card is still tops.

Don't upgrade your ram just yet, unless of course it is SD ram...

512 ram is plenty, a fx5600 ultra will play all games and will be good for new dx9 games due out shortly. you will see a big improvement in graphics.
