Updating Graphics Card.

  rewired 12:18 22 May 2003

Morning all, some advice for a greenhorn gamer please.
I have just been given Grand Theft Auto game as a pressie.Trouble is my existing set up ,AMD Athlone Xp1700,512 ram, Nvidia NV2 Geoforce 2Mx 400 and 64 mb video memory,isn't man enough for the job.
Anybody able to recommend a capable but not too expensive card that will cope ? (Say circa £60)

If it is 3, then a card liek an GF4 MX440 would do with 64mb ram.... or a raedon by ATi...

All depends on exactly how much you wish to spend..

If however it is the other GTA's.. then i suggest the problem is slightly different..

I would say go for a Gf4 4200 Ti - these are not too pricey. click here Dabsvalue Quicklinx: 2B3FWS £ 68.51 plus vat and worth every penny.

FYI the Dabsvalue are usually Inno3D Tornado cards (can't guarantee it though, they might have changed) which are some of the fastest cards around.
