Graphic on nVidia video card any good?


S

Someone

Hi all,

I'm looking to get an inexpensive video card and found one with the GeForce4
MX440-8X Video Card, AGP 8X, 64MB DDR at a local store.

I don't play any video games, so frame rate and such are not important, but
I need sharp text and graphic. How are the quality of the text and graphic
on the nVidia card? Or who has the best graphic currently?

Any comment is appreciated

For your useage its a very good card.

Yep. It's an older budget gaming card. Aren't matrox the ones that are
best for 2D stuff and usually dual head? I think the original poster's
monitor will make a MUCH bigger difference in terms of text than the
video card.

If you're not looking to play video games with it, why are you upgrading
the video card, if I may ask?

Oh yeah, forgot to mention this is for the new computer which does not have
a video card yet. I'm basically borrowing the 5 year-old card from the last
system. Don't want to keep it like this. And probably a good idea to
restore the old computer before handing it over to the young cousins...

Ah okay, I understand now :) Pretty much any card with stable drivers
for your operating system should run fine. The card you've selected is
more than you'll probably need :)
