Default Re: nvidia riva tnt2 model 64 HELP with NEW game!!

Welcome to the forum. I hope that we (aside from GamingLord, don't let him give you an opinion of a majority of nV News members) can offer you the help you need. Looking at the game you mentioned, you'd be well off getting either a used Geforce 3 or Geforce 4 ti (not a Geforce 4 MX) on eBay. If online auctions aren't your thing, you can try and find a Geforce FX 5700 or perhaps an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro. Aside from that I have a few questions.

1. Is this a name brand PC? By that I mean Dell, Compaq, HP, etc.
2. If the first question is a yes, what's the model number? (I ask because it's possible this is a PCI video card)
3. What types of games do you normally play?

With answers to those questions we can really give you more help. Also I'd recommend investing in more memory. At least I'd get another 128MB stick of PC2100 DDR memory. That can be had for < $40 at most retailers.

EDIT: Looking at your DXDiag results, this is a PCI video card. If that's the case it's doubtful you have an AGP slot which is required for a card worth buying these days. The best you can do is go for a Geforce FX 5200 PCI card.
