Right now i got a Radeon 9600xt 256MB video card and was thinking about getting a Radeon 9800pro 256MB video card to play Battlefield 2 better. Is that a good upgrade?

P.S.Will the Radeon 9800pro 256MB work ok will 250watt PSU?

Edit:I cant get a PCI-E because my computer dosn't support it.

Edit:Will the 128MB or 256MB 9800pro make a differance?

Since your wanting a new video card and your going to have to upgrade the powersupply. Id recommend an ati x800 pro atleast. Good prices for that card at


http://www.newegg.co...Submit=Property

the ati x800 pro is exactly 3 Times faster bandwith that your current 9600xt.

9800 pro compared to the X800 pro: The X800 pro has 7.04 GB faster bandwith than the 9800 pro and higher clock speed. ;)

Newegg has agp versions too, i checked!! :tazz:

If you cant afford that there is a cheap version of the x800 under the GT name havent read any reviews for it, apparently its aimed at schools and government.
