    Agp cards

    Agp cards

    It is getting a few lines and flickering on the screen which are a bit random (i had this problem with an old radeon 7200 agp card many years ago) at first i thought it was the drivers but it does not make ant difference when i change them.

    Agp cards

    As i built this machine many years ago i would like to see it last as long as posible :rolleyes: It runs xp at the moment and i might change the operating system in the future so i think i will get a hd3650 for it

    Agp cards

    Thanks but i am in the uk but as for the cards the Radeon Hd3850 seems to be the best one but seems quite expensive for an Agp video card ! i am told that my relatives nephew plays some games on it but i think they are just internet games , i read that their is supposed to be an agp Hd 4650 but...

    any new slim gpu's ??

    I was shocked at the size of my Gtx275 ! it only just got in my case and i had to move a hard drive out the way :eek: It was nearly double the size of my single slot hd4850 - Far too big

    Which is best?

    The 275 comes out better in most benches i have read but i think you cant go wrong with either card ! Why not wait for the dx 11 cards that are coming soon ?

    SATA DVD/RW drives .

    I changed from an ide dvdrw to a sata dvdrw just because the ide drive failed but to be honest i didn't see any difference It really depends on what speed of disk you use :)

    Ram upgrade

    I dont think my motherboard supports faster ram ? So keep the money for a ddr3 i7 setup really ? i suppose i7 ddr3 route is the only real upgrade path to get on but i still think it is overpriced at the moment and i dont see i5 as anything more than core2 replacement.

    Ram upgrade

    I can get another 4gb of 800mhz ddr2 ram for only £36 in the uk as ram is really cheap right now :) would it be worth it with my machine going to 8 gb ?

    New 275

    It sounds like you just had a bad card as my Palit 275 is the best card i have had and works perfectly and was worth the money going from a 4850 Hd5800 will be good but there are no dx11 games on the horizon yet

    Fastest Video Card

    The 280 is still being sold in the uk albeit it is not a bang for buck card and i think it should be included in the chart like the hd4850 x2.
