      Well, a lot depends on which games you're trying to play. With that setup, if you were trying to play Joint Ops, I'd get down on your knees and thank whatever it is you're inclined to thank for such things that you we able to acheive double digits in FPS.

      Half-Life would probably go. NS wouldn't (or shouldn't, at least), BF1942 should be laughably slow, GR might be passable, considering the pace at which the game plays anyway. :)

        say this with me......


        cell


        errrrrrrrr

        on




        in


        tell







        now, never use them in the same in the same sentence as "gaming" again.

        intel extreme (even the 2nd inclination) is anemic at best for games..... nothing less than a radeon 7500 or gf 2 mx for hl mods will work ..... better would be a 9000 and up or gf 4 (anything but mx) and up for hl/gr. best low end now is a ati 9600 or fx 5700.

        celeron is another weak link. get a p4 the extra cache works wonders on games.

          Actually, a nVIDIA TNT2 Ultra can outperform a GF2mx and will play HL mods at over 60 fps...

            MANY many lies!

            I had a geforce2mx 220 once.. and i had a constant fps of 99 in 800x600 32bit colors



            Also, a geforce4mx isnt bad at all for any HL1 mods. Get into BF1942, and you get 30fps easily

              Whoa there, sparky... Read what I said again... I can assure you that some TNT2 Ultras outperform some GF2mxs. I didn't say that a TNT2 will outperform all GF2 mxs.

              BTW: When I cranked my display down to 800x600, I was getting 99fps with my TNT2 Ultra as well... Best video card EVER (adjusted for "inflation", of course).

                    Hmm, maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I thought that the MX cards didn't support T&L... Your framerate might've been OK, but you would've been missing some things that were supposed to be displayed. That's the game that forced me to upgrade to a GF3 Ti...

                      for the tnt2 ultra, I thought it WAS classified above the gf2 mx......

                          Who did I sell my TNT2 to? Somebody here at TG, I know. Was it Phyllis?

                            A video card of any kind is a START. Take DdogG's words to heart; a Celeron is not built for gaming.
