Hello,

I was wondering if you could help me with this ?

I have a computer with the bellow listed settings.
I use 3 monitors, one video card I believe is built - in and ,I added 2 PCI, 16MB Woodoo 2000
video cards, that caused some problems and had to be removed.
I would like to replace them. I would like to get more MB, but what is too much ?
Also could I use AGP cards(since I heard they performe better) and how do I find that I have that option on my computer?
Any help greatly appreciated
Thanks

well..your problem is that you can't have more than one video card installed at any given momoent....if you're wanting to use 3 seperate monitors you'll have to get a video card with 3 seperate outputs...if you're wanting to use a tv as one of those monitors you'll have to have either svideo or composite out on that card......and yes agp is faster than pci

Guys, I need some advice please.
I have a Dell Dimension 4550 (400MHz FSB) Desktop. (had it since late 2002 or thereabouts). Thing is, I got it with a 32MB ATI Rage Ultra Graphics card and now I need to upgrade specifically for gaming purposes (not hardcore gaming, but just to get good framerate when playing cuz right now, America's Army V2.4 lags big time on Lowest settings).
I was wondering if anyone could provide some advice on what cards are compatible with this system and what u think I should get. Thank you.
