I changed my card from a 32mb TNT2 Ultra card to a 128 Geforce 4 Ti4200 card and have got the latest drivers and enabked anti-analising and some other stuff and it doesn't seem much better. Is this because i'm using old games? Anyone any ideas?

It could be the games and it could be the rest of the components installed on your Processor, Mobo and Memory primarily. (;o)))

The card is 128mb DDR and AGP 8X, the CPU of my comp is 1.2ghz(athlon) and i only have a AGP 4X Mobo which is Soltek SL75-KAV

8x in a 4x mobo???

silly question... it's working in your PC isn't it!!!

Its fine, the company i bought it from said it'd be fine

I would say it's probably the games, if they're all old. Looking at your system spec I would say that another 256Mb DDR, would give your system a real boost, and let you see the benefits of your gfx card.

sorry bud!
just re-read the thread too late ,to stop making a sack of myself. Getting mixed up with mobo and gfx. Duh.

Your 1.2Ghz Athlon could be the bottleneck for your graphics card. That's why you can't experience the difference between your old and new card.

No my card is 128mb DDR and my comp has 512mb SDRAM. The games are old i suppose, i'll look at a AGP 8x Motherboard with support for the Latest XP Processors. What would you reckonmend for the CPU? And Motherboard?
