Video card questions Answered
I've recently gotten a free PC (a HP Evo D510) which I intend to do some moderate networked gaming on. My plan was to buy a cheap AGP or PCI graphics card, but I'm unsure what to go with (ATI/nVidia, AGP/PCI). I've only had experience with PCI-E cards so far. From what I've read, AGP is faster than PCI. I assume this is correct? Looking at NewEgg, it would seem that AGP ATI cards are ludicrously better than AGP nVidia cards. Is this the case? The computer to be upgraded has 2 Gib of RAM and a 2.4 Ghz P4. I'm anticipating the porcessor to be a bottleneck, along with slow bus speeds. I suppose my main question here is what GPU should I roll with? I'd like to spend less that $75, but that's flexible to a certain extent. Anyways, thanks in advance.
