Hello to FeliTCat and g0nvs Thanks for your comments,obviously my card is not up to the job,can you suggest a alternative? Bearing in mind my system specs and how do I know what cards support T&L. I will have to find one compatible with AGP4x and not built to *Xstandards as it will only run at half speed. Also with regards to my system It also is dual boot for XP and ME.regular housekeeping and defrag keeps everything running fine.Yes you are right I am running DirectX 9. Thank you Vin
You can find a very good graphics card that will play all the current games for about £120 - £150. The latest and greatest cards cost up to £350 but, frankly, even the manufacturers don't expect to sell many. Only speed freaks really want them.
New cards with new chips come out all the time; last month's model then drops significantly in price and becomes the best buy.
You can always carry your new card over to any new computer you may buy in the fuure.
