    Graphics Card Woes

    I have Unreal 3, and to partner it, a horribly inadequate NVIDIA 400. Needing at least a Nvidia 6200, does anyone know a good site where I could pick up a new card?

    depends on where you live.
    USA:
    newegg.com
    zipzoomfly.com
    tigerdirect.com

    do NOT goto your local walmart and buy one they jack the price up 4x.
    bestbuy carries gfx cards at a reasonable price as well as circuitcity


    edit:
    when upgrading gfx make sure you have the following:
    room for the card (newer cards are longer)
    adequate power supply (higher wattage required for most cards)
    required interface (agp/agp pro/pci-e 16x/pci-e 2.0 -- agp pro will take agp cards and pci-e 2.0 / pci-e 16x work with each other)

      Given that you have a horribly inadequate video card, it is extremely likely that the rest of your system is horribly inadequate as well. Assuming this is the case, don't waste your money on a new AGP video card. Replace your system with one that will accept a PCI-e vid card.

        YEAH, since the very same card can cost double the money in its AGP version than its PCI-e counterpart, and yet have the very sane performance.

            It sounds like you need a new system. You may be able to reuse your case if it's a standard ATX design.

              What are the spec's for your PC? Post them here before you do anything or buy anything. The people here are pretty PC savy and will guide you in the right direction.
