Video Cards - Tips? Suggestions?
Like any other sane person in the united states of earth, I am eagerly awaiting may 15, 2003 to witness the shock and awe that is Matrix: Reloaded and the game Enter the Matrix.
I need to get a new video card to support the game as mine is very ancient (4mb of memory onboard). I'm going to a computer fair tomorrow and will be looking around for one. I am very uneducated when it comes to video cards. The system requirements for the game are GeForce2 256 or Radeon 7500 (or something like that).
So I know what type of chipset I'm looking for (one of those two), but I know nothing about what brand is a good card manufacturer. I located a card at Fry's that's $99 before a $50 mail-in rebate (btw, I'm not interested in spending more than $100; actually about $60 is what I'm aiming for). This is that card "PNY 64MB AGP Video Card with nVidia's GeForce4 MX440-SE 3D Chip." Is that any good?
Well, to sum up, The Matrix owns and I need an affordable GeForce or Radeon video card from a worthwhile card manufacturer. Any assistance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
