AGP8x Gfx card upgrade advice please...

  xphile 07:43 05 Dec 2008

Currently have Nvidia 6600GT card. Only play Warcraft,but frame rates often 10fps.

System specs: Intel P4 2.8Ghz cpu,MSI865G Mobo (I think?), 1GB RAM (Soon to be upgraded to 2.56GB).

Any suggestions for a suitable Gfx card upgrade?

Hi, I have the same graphics card and I play FSX Deluxe at 30fps and it is grreat! The difference is, that I have 4Gb RAM (running at 3.2Gb) because I am using XP.

PS - and my CPU is P4 3Ghz, pretty much the same as yours.
