First off, I have an almost 15 yr. old that is into gaming, typically playing shooter games and rpg games (his definition). He (my son) has a Compaq Presario (my mistake) that originally came with a 64mb. integrated extreme graphics card. We upgraded it to a 128mb. Nvidia PCI card. At first it was sufficient, now he is having problems with the games playing slow. He said it is due to only having a 128mb. card. He found that Best-Buy has a 256mb. ATI Radion (PCI card)on sale. I was thinking awhile back I talked to a gamer/sales clerk at a computer store and he said that a 256mb would probably play no better that a 128mb as long as it was a PCI card. To really benefit from 256mb. you need a AGP card. What are your views on that statement? There is a local computer supply/repair center that can replace the board (mother board, I Guess) so it will accept a AGP card. Is this wise? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dennis (and Cody) Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
