Well it seems my video card is a lemon so I need a new one. I'm a big fan of ATI cards and I'm hoping to stick to that chipset. My budget is $200ish and my hopes are to be able to stay up-to-date for quite some time. I want to be able to play most of the modern games, namely Halflife2 and Black and White 2 at fairly high settings with little to no stutter. Since my old card is crashing left and right, another concern for me is stability. I have no intrest in overclocking (the instability and risk of the card just doesn't seem worth it to me) and absolutely no intrest in even slightly buggy tech. I want a card that works! Also, I want to stay away from this brand, Connect3d. I've heard some bad things about them on this forum and others. Here are my computer's current specs: 400W no-name PSU Biostar i945PA7 Socket 775 Motherboard Intel Celeron 346 3.06Ghz 533FSB Socket 775 Corsair Value Select 1024MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz I intend to upgrade to 2GB of ram within six months. For those of you interested, the stats on the lemon card are: Connect 3D Radeon X700 256MB PCIe w/DVI/TV-OUT Any advice at all is very welcome. *PS* I'm considering the ATI Radeon X1300 All In Wonder 2006 Edition / 256MB GDDR3 but I'm not sure if it's worth it. I hear that the pipelines are low and the memory has a small bus width (although I have no clue what that means in relation to performance). Anyone know if this is a good choice? Or recommend another?
