  1. My neighbor has a Dell Dimension 4700 (P4 3.2 Ghz 256Mb DDR2-400 SDRAM). His son has the new Star Wars game and is experiencing some freezes/slowdowns. He wants to buy an x16 PCIe card, but doesnt want to spend "big bucks" Any advice?

    I have the ati x700 and that was only 200 and it has worked like a champ.

    You may want to recommend putting in more RAM too. 256 mb would not only slow down the game, but the system as a whole.

    terrible ram!

    Dude, I have a 733MHz IBM Laptop, and I have 376MB of RAM. That computer is worthless without RAM. Proabably the card is fine, the computer just needs RAM. Also, the x800 Pro is $200 and is a good card.
