    I don't think a 9550 will run doom 3 acceptably, even on low settings, it apparantly gets about 18fps at low quality mode, which is too slow to be really playable.

    A card like an agp nvidia 6200 will be much better in doom3, it should be getting about 40fps on high settings.

    Other cards to consider, ati 9600pro, 9600xt, 9800, 9800pro.

    This is much better for a similar price.

    doom3 1337!!+! eh

    doom 3 will play on a gf3 just fine. just will have to be played at ****ty resolution. I rarely jump into threads on this forum cause its full of fanboys always trying to pimp the latest and greatest video card.

    I play games based on how good the game is, not how great the graphics look. Perhaps thats "old school" but damn, its at least real.
