Worth upgrading graphics card?

  Rogerfredo 11:25 10 Apr 2004

My system at present has an MX440 graphics card with 64Mb ddr memory.
The mainboard has an AMD 1800 processor and 4x AGP port.
Would I notice any difference by changing to an Nvidia MX5200 series board?
I do not play many games at present but do use my computer for video editing etc.

Unlikely. If you have not I would stick in as much RAM as possible...this will make a noticeable difference.

not much point to upgrade if you are not playing graphics intensive games. The money may better spent on extra memory or better hard drive (with 8mb cache) for video editing.

Thanks to all. Just as I thought.
