Hi. I have a decent computer with a gig of ram bla bla bla. I have an ATI radeon 9000 with i beleive 128 megs of ram. My bro says i should get a new graphics card. I think it is just fine. he wants me to get it becuase of an upcomeing lan party that will involve Half life 2 and Battle field 2. is it really neccasary? if anything, i would think i would need to upgrade my 1.7 Gigahertz proscessor. Thanks
I guess i should add, i would be spending $210 on a new card. thats how much i got to blow right now. thanks

Dear knex,

Upgrading to a 256mb video card will help a lot with video speed but all goes through the CPU.

Get both from Newegg.com for about what you want to spend.

Heres a cool vid card:Newegg

Heres a cool CPU:Newegg

Total price: $183.99 without shipping.

Take a look at Newegg.com. I bet you can find both for under $200 and will be able to link with your friends. No Problem.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:
