I need a new Video Card (looking for suggestions)

Monday, May 1, 2006 12:30 PM

I need a new gaming video card. I don't want to spend more than $300 Cdn on it...and it needs to be a good GAMING card...I have an ATI Radeon 9800 right now, but my old first generation Radeon was more stable (which could be my system, but I doubt it...

P4 2.4 Ghz
P4BE Asus Mobo
1 Gig Ram

The only thing that I can think of that might be a kicker is either my hard drive is starting to crap out or something, but its running really slow and it takes forever for my login screen to show up on my monitor (it kicks off, then the monitor kicks on but nothing on the screen...then after about 15 seconds or so I'll see a mouse pointer...then the screen...very annoying).

I'm thinking of trying NVidia this time...any good cards that I can run WoW and CoV on taht won't cost me an arm and a kidney?

Get the GeForce 6800GS. It's an amazing card for the price. There's nothing out there it won't be able to handle, even with a bit of extra antialiasing and anisotropic filtering. It also does HDTV. 5/2/2006 10:54 AM | solid
