Video Card Needed


J

Jim Fox

I had a Diamond Viper V770 32MB card in my old ABIT BE6-II that worked just
fine. I wanted to get more FPS in Medal of Honor so I got an ATI Radeon
9600SE which didn't work at all (lots of trial and mostly error). Then I
got a NVidia MX440 8X AGP that seems to work fine until I play Medal of
Honor. I have increased my FPS, but I also get lots of pausing or going
back a few steps in the game.


Anyone got a suggestion for a video card that would give me better FPS than
a Diamond Viper V770 but will work in my ABIT BE6-II?

THANKS

This may not be your video card, alot of it could be the rest of your
hardware such as your hard disk and RAM. Since you have a better video
card you crank the effects up a little bit, but that requires the game
to pull more from the hard disk, and also place more information in RAM.
This results in a bottle neck elsewhere in your system then at your
video card, causing the game to play 'catchup' sometimes as the some of
the rest of your hardware struggles to keep up with the demand for data.
Increase your RAM, and/or get a newer, faster harddisk. I suggest a
Western Digital 8meg cache hard disk, very good and reliable with good
speed. You might also try defragmenting your hard disk as this may have
something to do with your performance issues.

WHoops, I meant to say the vid card issues are on my Asus P3V4X. What card
would give me better performance than the Diamond Viper V770 on my Asus
P3V4X MoBo.


Sorry for the confusion!

I will defragment tonight whilst I am sleeping.

I currently am running 512mb PC100 ECC Kingston RAM.

That's because it's probably a different AGP standard: card and
motherboard are different.
Then I
got a NVidia MX440 8X AGP that seems to work fine until I play Medal of

back a few steps in the game.

That's because the mx440 is a cheap arse card that is not meant to be
used for FPS games...not if you want anything nearing quality that is.

Have a look at some of the geforce4ti cards. I *THINK* these should be
compatible with your motherboard's AGP version.

I don't know how fast your processor is, but all the cards above are
really not good for FPS games. Any NVidia card with an MX designation is a
budget card and not by any stretch a good card for gaming. MOH is a fairly
demanding title and to play it really smooth I would recommend at least a
2+ghz processor and a GF-4 TI-4xxx card. The MX440 is just a revamped GF-2
and several generations old. It is not much of a step-up from your V770,
if at all.

GeForce Ti4200 would be good. I've got two - I'm keeping one and selling
the other. You can find them on eBay for around $70, and new for $120 or
less.

To play Medal of Honor successfully, and similar games, you may need to look
to upgrading your motherboard along with the video card.
