I want to upgrade my horrible outdated FX5500 256mb graphics card with something that will offer me alot more than the one i currently have. Unfortunatly my budget is around the £150 - £175 but i have friends who can get me parts at near cost price. So what do people suggest. Main games: Battlefield 2, HL2 and HL2 mods, all Steam Games and DoD:S which offers HDR! I just need something that I can enjoy.

My specs:

ASUS Mobo - not sure of the model
2 x 512mb PC3200
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (2.0ghz)
nVidia FX5500 256mb
80GB 2mb Cache (with corrupt version of XP)
Seagate 160GB 8mb Cache (with working version of XP)

I've attached an Aida32 report

Thanks
Adzi :tazz:

Hi. My suggestion would be to use google to find reviews on graphics cards. Then use google to search for one you like, priced within your budget.

just for you knowledge I'm getting a 6600GT (not the best) but by my reckoning, Directx10 cards will be out this time next year so i don't want to blow a mint on a card that will want to be upgraded again next year!

Thanks for the help! :tazz:
