PCI Card Question / Help
I believe my video card is dying and causing my computer to freeze up (I've eliminated everything else I can think of except the motherboard). I currently own an ATI 1650 with 512MB of memory. I would like to replace it with an nvidia card. It is a 4 year old PC with PCI. The only inexpensive PCI cards I can find for nvidia are 256MB cards. Otherwise, every card I find is PCI express. Does anyone know of any PCI nvidia cards with 512MB?
If not, how much of a hit will I take for moving to 256MB, even though the card is newer (the main games I play are FS X and Half Life 2)?
