  1. Got an old P3 733MHz, 512MB 133MHz sdram with an AGP 4x slot what would be the best video card that wont be underutilized because of cpu limitations.

    Thanks

    Probably a Radeon 9600. They're quite cheap these days.

    Hmm... I wouldn't bet that the 9600 won't be underutlized, but given its price, you won't save much from getting the perfectly matched GPU....

    Just wondering, what would this computer be used for, it seems like you've already got yourself a decent gaming computer there (in sig).

    A 9600XT or a Ti4200 could do the job.

    this computer im putting together is mainly for streaming media from my good computer which is in my basement, my bedroom is on the 2nd floor, and to play older games like 1.6 and the likes. I went for an Asus A9550 as appose to the 9600 because it was about 20 bucks cheaper at 50 bucks Canadian and the performance difference shouldn't be that great, at least once oced a little. Thanks for the feed back.
