Pci Video Card Under About $100

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm trying to get a decent Video card for PCI (not PCI express) my brother, I have a crap Rosewill MX 4000, so if you guys recomend a better card, I may start saving up. I'm not really a noob, but I thought the FX series was good so I don't know.

 

We both have the Same Systems, just he has intregrated graphics

256 ram

1.8 celeron

....thats about it.

Yeah, the GeForce FX 5700LE is most likely your best bet for a pci card. Nothing from ATi is worth getting for pci. Unless someone can point out a 9550 or 9600 for pci that I missed. So that's it really.

Take it while they still have it in stock. Newegg has the fastest shipping for FedEx ground that I've ever seen, go for it. Don't worry about the brand too much, usually doesn't make a difference on mid/low end cards. Hope your bro likes it! :foldon:

 

Also, the FX series are okay. They're not the best, but certainly not the worst either. They were designed to compete with ATi's 9xxx series, which didn't go over too well until you got to the 5800 on up. Even then the difference between fps in the two brands was barely noticeable. The only difference is thtat ATi has better image quality.
