Should I upgrade my video card?

Please help me. :whistling: I purchased Might and Magic V thinking my fairly new Compaq XP system would be able to run the game. After going on line and registering the game it said that my system with ATI Radeon XPress 200 series is not adequate to run the game smoothly. It suggested 64 MB Direct X9.0 compliant video card NVIDIA Geforce 3+ ATI Radeon 8500+. Here is my question (being computer stupid). I have a multimedia accelerator 3dforce2 mx-64ddr agp 4x from a previous computer. Can I take this from my previous computer and install it on my new one as an up grade to play the game or would I be spinning my wheels? In other words I would hate to put this other video card in my new computer only to find that I still couldn't play the game or even end up down grading what I already have in my system now. Again, in other words is the ATI Radeon XPress 200 series a better video card compared to the 3dforce2 mx-64ddr multimedia accelerator, and if the 3dforce2 mx-64ddr is better is it compatible with my computer. Thanks in advance. :blink: Pastor Chuck

The ati 200 is better, i would give it a try see how it plays and if it doesnt come up to scratch then youll need to buy something beefier and we can help you get something decent.
