So rude, yet so true

Get a radeon, 9500 or better, preferrably 9800-series, if you even want to have a chance at getting good frame rates and quality mix

Lol @ Lecram25.....Did we just return form the X3dfX forum eh??
Suwat,
A 32mb video card with no HwTnL unit has NO chance of running any of the newer games -> at least at decent frame rates anyway.
Eg Far Cry, Painkiller, Doom3, HL2...just to name a few...
Halo ain't on this list cause I finally got it working on the Voodoo5 pci, and it runs decent @ 1024. Will post screenies once I get my ram back..

***ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI!***

THANK YOU!

At least someone got the joke.
I even told my friend, "watch this, amp_man's gonna say something about it being rude"

Damn, am I that predictable? lol. But it is true, you can't really expect that kind of thing from a card you bought 3 years ago, technology has evolved (or at least gotten faster).
