I'm running An athlon 950, on a MSI 6330lite mobo, 348mb pc133 ram, 30gb hdd, 17inch monitor and Win98se

I'm looking at upgrading my graphics card from a gf2 mx 32mb.

I play games like unreal2003, and will be doing a lot of CAD work in the near future.
I have looked at toms and think a gf4 ti4200 64mb should do me. Could anyone sugest anyother cards which might be better, and any other upgrades which may be needed for my CAD work.

I had a problem updating my graphics card, it looks like it wasn't compatable with my Motherboard, so i recommend checking that out first.

The CAD side of things, i would say more memory is needed.

Grpahics card the GF4200 would be fine.

Certainly the Ti4200 models (64 and 128Mb) seem much better value to me than the 4600s. I have a Ti4200 128Mb and it's great, but you may be better with the 64Mb otherwise it will probably be held back by the rest of the system I reckon.

jay123, agree with Powerless, you could be doing with some more memory for CAD work, and with that in mind have you looked here. click here
