Rise of Nations - Graphics Card

  Mastermind 16:46 18 Aug 2003

I have recently bought Rise of Nations and want to play it across my network. Unfortunately, it won’t run on one PC because it uses a Voodoo 3 3000 graphics card, which despite being a 16MB graphics card isn't supported. The motherboard is based on a 82440BX PIIX4E chipset.

What graphics cards would be compatible? I'm after something basic that would enable me to run Rise of Nations with minimal expenditure.

Any suggestions?

What does it say on the box?

This is what it says on the website (similar to the back of the box)click here

However, if you dig further you find this click here where it specifically lists the Voodoo 3 3000 as non-supported card.

However, in order to play multi-player I'm prepared to replace my old card with something that would be capable of playing Rise of Nations. I'd like to spend as little as possible though.

The GeForce4 MX 440 is under £40 and will do the job well.

What would be the best place to get that from?
