Many thanks to CodenameCueball.... I was looking at MicroDirect's offer of ATi Radeon X1550 but it's dearer... I've seen some articles recommending DirectX 10 to get the full Monty.. but the Vista box says Direct X 9 and shader 2... so your suggestion rates a good looking at. Thnx. M
I have recently fitted an ATI radeon x1650 pro AGP card , and it runs everything in vista , with the drivers that come with vista. its still available at a few places , price around the £70 mark , maybe not good enough for some gamers , but a very respectable card .
