What graphic card ?

  rory7411 18:38 05 Apr 2003

I am reluctantly having to upgrade my motherboard and CPU - I'm going for an ASUS motherboard and Athlon AMD 2000+ processor
The Motherboard specs are:
. Supports SDR or DDR Memory (PC133/DDR266) to 2GB
. FSB 200/266MHz
. USB 2.0, AGP4x, 10/100 LAN, Audio, 5PCI Slots

Now I want a T&L graphics card but most of the ones I'm looking at say they are xMB DDR ram - I was intending to keep with my current memory SDRAM - will any card be OK or are there ones that specifically support SDR - or am I going to have to change the memory too?

Can anyone help?

If I was you I would get yourself at least
256mb of the newest type of RAM that your motherboard can take. Then the world is your oyster with graphics depending on your budget -
the Geforce Ti4600 is an excellent card which you
can probably pick up for around £180 or maybe less. Or maybe the Radeon 9500 Pro or the
current frame rate king 9700 Pro.

or the Ti4200 for around £130 or less

I think you are a little confused here Rory. The graphics card has it's own memory on the card itself, completely separate and independent from the system memory. Barrie_g's suggestion of a card based on an Nvidia Geforce Ti4200 will perform very well indeed, go for one with 128MBs DDR ram.
