Sapphire VGA ATI Radeon HD 3870, 512 MB GDDR4, 256-bit, 775/1125 Mhz, HDCP, 2x DL-DVI, PCI-E Lite Retail
11122-05-20R / active cooling/ dual slot
My PC configuration:
Power Supply: LC Power LC6550GP V2.0 Green Power PC Power Supply 550 W ATX PFC 14cm
Main board: MB Abit AN8 Ultra 939 ATX
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.01GHz
Memory: G.SKILL PC3200 F1-3200PHU2-1GBZX 1024MB kit DDR400, CL 2,0-3-3-6 @ 2,65-2,85 V
Graphics card: Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO 2 (square) 256Mb GDDR3 Ram PCI-Express VGA / TV-Out / DVI-I – currently dead
Is it a good idea to put such a video card in my PC? Or would it be just wasting of money?
Could a minor upgrade, like extra 1 Gb of memory, improve the situation in the case?
Now my PC is running with an ancient PCI card S3 with 4 Mb), suitable for nothing but going to internet and writing this text… So, I need to make a decision fast.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions,
