i have a dell dimension 8200 a 2001 model
and i need a new video card
i currently have a Nvidia GeForce3 Ti 500
and i recently purchased battlefield 2 :tazz:
well my computer works fine with it except for my video card
it wouldnt hurt to upgrade the old thing anyway.
im looking at two cards a radeon 9600pro 256mb or a GeForce 6600 or 6800 256mb

now i dont know if those will work in my computer so i need some help before i buy a 150-400 dollar video card.

to run the game all i need is a GeForce 5700 or greater or a radeon 8500 or greater plus it needs at least a 128mb chipset memory
is there anyway i can get this game to work in my computer?

thru my searches i understand that you use a AGP video slot, correct?

according to my searches (again) your card is a AGP 4X/2X, what i need to know is what can your motherboard handle as far as AGP 2X/4X/8X?

Use cpu-z find out what kind of AGP interface you use, if it is only 4x then i would say nothing better than a 6600GT maybe an x800pro as it would be wasted otherwisw, if it is a 8x socket you are in luck and could get up to a 6800ultra if you want.
