so i really wanted to take some time and recommend this video card that i purchased. except for the little issue where it beat my soundcard into submission its a pretty damn nice card!
my video cards tend to always be NVIDIA cards, but this time i chose an ATI instead because there were no good NVIDIA cards on newegg for agp card slots. my computer is getting pretty old, and the mother board only has pci and agp. the card i got before this one, that sucked, was an NVIDIA but it was a pci card which made it slow.
so today has been the videogame testing day, and so far i’ve been left with my mouth hanging open.
i have never played WoW with 20fps… i never knew it could be so pretty and shiny and FAST. and with most everything set all the way to max in the graphics sliders! i even have shadows!
fallout 3 i haven’t tested to its max capacity because i’m scared lol i don’t want to blow up my computer o.o
second life, i think i mentioned this yesterday… peaking fps of about 15! and in some areas with less prims i got about 30fps! NEVER HAD THAT EVER!
all my games, i’m used to like.. 5 fps max, maybe 7fps… never double digit fps and definitely not when the graphics are at full max.
so yeah, if you have an older machine and are looking for a good video card to make gaming a bit more fun and smoother, you should really check this one out. its this card here. i hope that it and i will have a long loving relationship and that it lasts me until i can buy a new computer lol
ok so now its back to videogames.
