Ok here's my current graphics card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814131070

I was wondering how nice it is(for its bus and class etc.) compared to the other agp cards. Can someone give me a nice review of my card? It hasen't impressed me. I barely maintain 20fps on cod4. Im hopefully building a new pc soon as some of you may know but I was still wondering. B)

X_C I would have one of those video cards or better IF I had a pci express slot. My computer is almost 7 years old. Showing me a bunch of new graphics cards that i've seen before wont help me any. Im getting this one for my new system- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814161269

 

Don't get that card, it has been known to have severe heat issues.

Whatever you do, just don't get that one as it is plagued with problems.

 

There are a variety of other 4870s around the same price as the one you previously wanted. I suggest browsing them and reading what people have to say about them. Try to look for problem reviews that repeat the same issues consecutively in order to avoid purchasing a bad one such as the one you mentioned earlier.

J/W, why do you prefer ATI?

Both companies make excellent products, and their competition gives us the best price/performance we can get.

 

Can we know a little bit about your new system?

What are the spec's?

What resolution are you planning on playing games at?

What games do you want to play?

 

It's hard to recommend anything if you don't know what you need it to do.

If COD4 is all you need to play a 4850 will allow you to go 1080p resolution, highest AA and AF no problems at all.

That should help. Anyway, my mother plans on getting cod6(she plays cod too) when it comes out and I want to get left 4 dead so those are definitely games that I would want good fps on. I also like to record footage. I just dont know anything abotu nvidia cards. I've just always had an ati.

As I wait for my new video card I have been using this one...ATI

 

And Runs COD4 flawlessly and all games out there now (maybe expect Crysis on all high) I was pleasently surprised and it came down in price ALLOT!! I paid 149..

 

Just my 2 cents for a budget GPU
