Computer "shops" normally only carry 64MB cards... And I think you mean 1GHz!

Why the upgrade though?!

Anyway, tell me a price range please.

At 1 Ghz (at least I'm assuming Ghz) your 64meg vid card is not slowing you down. I really doubt you would see any performance increase with a 128 card because your proc is what is keeping you down.

For those of you too young to remember, the Macintosh was not Apple's first computer. Apple got its start in the late 1970s selling the Apple I, Steven Wozniak's first mass-produced computer that zipped along at a (then) speedy 1MHz. When the Macintosh project got underway, the company was selling the Apple II, another 1MHz computer with 4KB of base RAM. It could display color graphics -- a real rarity in those days -- at a maximum resolution of six colors at 280x192 or four colors at 40x48. The system came with an optional floppy disk drive and a keyboard; the mouse was an innovation that came a little later.

Yeah my mistake I think its lower[Somewhere between 780 and 860 Ghz].The reason is that i want to play Pariah with it without getting lags.And any cheap128 mb video card will be good for the price range.

... I think you mean 780-860MHz... lol
And that won't be able to play Pariah with a new vid card <_< You need a new processor(cpu). Might I suggest a cheap setup:

AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton 333MHz FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket A Processor @ 1.9GHz - $96

Thermaltake Extreme Volcano 12 80mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan/Heatsink - $33.99

BIT KW7 Socket A (Socket 462) VIA KT880 ATX AMD Motherboard - $59.95

OCZ Premier Series 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered System Memory - $45.91

SAPPHIRE Radeon 9600XT 128MB 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card - $87

Overall Total = $322.85

That is a decent setup I suppose for a budget. Worth a try eh.

$322.85! That is a very cheap setup. You can run F.E.A.R with that! lol

That vid card will handle all the latest games, maybe not running F.E.A.R at max settings, but around Medium or Low. Still excellent.

Over here that would cost about $800 as i have a similar setup except with an AMD Athlon 2800+ and an Xpert Vision Radeon 9800 Pro and that cost me around $900 ... thats buying cheaply aswell (online stores, ebay etc)

A little bit slower than 1Mhz?!?

You have to remember, Sobe, that Pred has no job and even if he did, probably couldn't ship the parts out to his house (Malaysia ! US (C humor)). Even if he could, how would he know how to piece it together? Building your own PC is something that you do with spare parts, not something that you spent 322 usd on, then had about 50 more tacked on for shipping. For that much, he could almost get a brand new Dell computer (don't know if they ship out there).

I still laugh at that, 800 GHz. Priceless (no offense Pred).

I don't quite understand really, I mean, you purchase parts and place them in your rig. Voila. Spare parts are for spare pcs and/or temporary components in your main pc.

And if you spend $300+ on pc parts from NewEgg.... Why would you not build it youself I just see no logic that that part of your post

And about getting a $399 Dell, that Dell will NOT play F.E.A.R... I spend $200 on my vid card to at least play the latest games and place it inside my computer myself... And then you add cpu, mobo, memory, case, etc. costs.... I spent over $1k and built it myself.. Why would I want Dell, after all, they have Intel chips.
