dell 1.7 ghz
looking for cheap video card upgrade and looking at these 2 mid-level (i guess) cards LESS than - 150 $$
-how do these compare to each other and for moderate games maybe doom 3 and quake 4 ???
-also wanting to try games like Lego starwars 2 (needing pixel shaders)
Please let me know what you think,
and also I believe i will need to upgrade agp drive, if i remember right it's 2.0 version right now.
Any insight you can offer me will be appreciated, still learning about video cards and dont have much of a budget right now.
thanks in advance
