Hi, I posted about my video card in a different area and found out that it doesnt work anymore.. well it barely works.
I play mainly World of Warcraft on my Dimension 2400 and I want to get a new video card but im not sure if I should get the same one or upgrade a little. I know that the PCI slot limits me..as well as my old 2400, but I would like to buy something I will be happy with and get the best performance for my computer.
Current video card: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 128MB
Specs: Dimension 2400
Pentium 4 2.2ghz
Thanks for your help
You are not gonna want to hear this but since you have that model pc that only has a pci slot for expansion slots, you will be better off by saving your money and building a new pc or buy a new one down the line..
The fastest video card for regular PCI slot is the fx 5500 they do make a fx 5500 OC version that is slightly overclocked but it does not make a bit of difference at all.. Pci is very limited in speed and throughput. The fx 5500 is a very very slow video card and upgrading to it you would not tell a difference in the world really from a fx 5200..
If you had atleast an agp slot it would be worth upgrading to a good video card but you do not have an agp slot..
You need to get a new pc with a pci express 16x slot for video cards and get ATLEAST
a $200-$250 video card for gaming..
