  1. Hi,
    I am investing in a new home computer and I mostly enjoy it for gaming. One specific game, pretty old, avp2. I had heard a while ago that certain graphic cards were not compatible with the game bc it was older.
    I know kinda how much ram and all that to get, but I'm not sure what kind of video card to get. Any advice would really help....would hate to spend a bunch of money and then cant play my game. I'm getting a new pc cause this one is old and there's something wrong w it I can't fix.
    So far I see the options for Ratheon, Nvidia but then I don't know what is good. Which of the Nvidia is going to run my game etc.
    Thanks so much you smart people

    well first this depends on what your budget is. Whether you want to drop $1000 or less. For a TRUE gaming system, you are gonna drop about $2000-3000. I would recommend that Gateway FX510X series desktop system. I have one with a 19" LCD for about $2500. And in benchamrk tests, it notched 102FPS at 1280x1024 and 32bit color.
