Everquest II Video Card Question

By aledor

  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm working on building a new gaming machine for the primary purpose of playing EQII. I'm on a budget so I can't afford the high end cards like the GF8800. The machine I'm considering has an ATI 1950XT card.

    My question is, will that be enough to run that game on it highest or 2nd to highest setting? Should I consider a different card that is slightly more money but will accomplish my objective?

    Any advice or guidance you have would be greatly appreciated.

    System specs are as follows
    2.33 GHz
    2 gig DDRII RAM
    1950 XT ATI
    650 watt power supply
  2. You should be more than fine with those specifications.
    - Happy Gaming! :)

    Thanks for your reply JoeMo76.

    Do you think I should consider the ATI 1950 Pro with 512 mb of ram vs the std 1950xt with 256 mb ram?

    Get the 512mb specifically for EQ-II as it has a super texture mode that can consume up to 380MB of texture videoram if you have enough horsepower to muster that mode.

    It's nice to have, plus if you play any other games, a few have modes that will consume >256MB Vram (Oblivion texture mods, Doom3 "Ultra" modes, etc.etc.).
