9 posts in this topic

V45_NEWList.jpgi was running the game pretty good with 1 meg of memory and an nvidia fx5200 card.. but i got a new pc now and this new card is in my budget "$40.00" along with 2 megs of new memory. tell me about this card if you like it.;) if this card and memory give me 10 more framerates then the old 5200 ill be happy. im not into eye candy and all that jazz.if anyone finds another card thats a little higer priced but is better let me know.the 7600gt looks ok but im not sure.

Are we not supposed to tell you about it if we don't like it?

I see single digit fps in your future. That card isn't good enough for playable fps in ww2ol IMO.

Can you break the piggy bank and get yourself a 7600gt. That's about the bear minimum card I'd consider.

$85/$65 after mail in rebate.

You can get 2 gigs of memory for $40 now. Pretty good stuff. ddr800 or so.

thanks. well like i said up above i was getting clear and smooth gameplay with the 1 meg of memory and that old5200 card so i figured why pay more if i can get the same performance but a smidgen better.

i can play the game now with 1.6ghz processor,stock onboard video card and 512 memory now so that ought to say a lot:D. most wont believe that but i do. fast connection also. also the new improved game smoothing should really help any system out.

anyways ill look at what you listed.;) thanks again.

Emachines model w3622. 1.6ghz.intel celeron processor. "upgrading to a big dual core soon". my fx5200 card and memory wouldnt work-fit in this new machine at all. i have someone who helps me offline that knows what exact pci-agp or whatever i need that fits.;) mine came with 512 ram,350 watt ps,Xp os,dvd dual trays,the oversized pricy cooling fan and 2 slots.way under 300.:) i always buy low then upgrade myself.

Dont be upset, but i would replace the whole machine...

Celerons are bottum of the barrell....not to mention IMO you should at bare minimum have atleast 1gig of RAM.

I never like to upgrade computers. The new ones come out fast, and the old's value drops like hell.

I would rather buy higher end spec and use it for a few years, then get a new one.
