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

You'll probably be able to get $15-20 for the TNT, and you could get a GF3 (from me, even!! I have a GF3 I'd be willing to part with for $35!)...

Yes, you'd have to physically pull teh old one out and put the new one in...

Here's what a gfx card looks like, just in case you haven't really seen one before...



Your system is dang near adequate for semi-serious gaming... If it were to have at least a GF3/Radeon8500 class card...

I must recommend that you do however purchase AT LEAST 256mb of memory for that system... Windows XP is very memory hungry, and seems to get more so with every service pack ... A 256mb chip could be had for around $35-40...

But with 512mb of RAM, and maybe a GF4 ti4200 (a step up from a GF3... remember, never ever buy anything "MX"), you would be perfectly balancing out your PC... Your rig's specs are pretty powerful still... don't let anyone tell you otherwise... (I said "pretty powerful", folks... I know there's some CPU dependant games out there that may not like a 1.33, but theres enough GPU dependant games out right now that still can deal with a cpu of that speed PROVIDED IT IS EFFICIENT ENOUGH... /me pokes a stick @ a P4 1.3

Hope this helps a little.
