  • new videocard/questions about the game

    alright, so i need a new agp video card (something maybe abit better than the 9800pro) ive got around 120$ to spend on a new card...
    my motherboard is a Asus P4P800



    does the game take up allot of space? i only have 1 gig, would my parents notice a difference (in computer speed)?

          9800PRO is still a decent card. I'm not sure a $120 card would offer a big improvement.

          If your 1GB free space statement is correct, then, no, you don't have enough space. Otherwise, how can we know if your drive has enough space? :p Open "My Computer" and right click C: then select properties. Then you'll know how much space you have for sure!

            Keep the 9800pro ( that is what i used before getting the X800 ) and use the $120 to get a bigger Hard Drive .... :)

                Your posts are confusing. Do you have 1gb of RAM or 1 gig of HDD space?

                As for GPUs, right now the best retail you can get for $120 would be a x700pro I think. You might be able to find a refurbished or OEM 6600gt on the net somewhere though.

                  Yes, your motherboard has an AGP slot, it will work. Check how many watts your PSU outputs though. Then you can use http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/ to make sure you have enough power.

                      Well.. if it isn't clear already - Keep the 9800Pro.. IMHO you won't get a better card for $120. The only reason I left the 9800Pro is for insider equipment upgrades.. I've evaluated almost every graphic chipset (mid-high thru Ultra High) produced over the last 3 years.
