Video card upgrade. Best solution for PCI slot.
Posted on 2003-03-16
My situation is probably similar to a lot of peoples, I am a uni student who needed a fast CHEAP upgrade and I didn't overly care what I got, as long as it was quicker than my old 686... I ended up buying a Celeron 1.1Ghz processor, Gigabyte GA-6VEML motherboard... and some RAM. It was quick and easy.
Now, 1 yr down the track I am begining to realise that I may have made a REALLY stupid mistake. This motherboard doesn't have an AGP slot, I am doing my honours degree in 3d graphics and the on-board ViaTech chipset is not going to cut it... I also quite enjoy my computer games :P
Anyway what I was wanting to know was are there any good quality video cards that would be suitable. I would prefer not to have to buy another MB... Could you please give me some cards to look for. It doesn't need to be the latest thing, or the greatest thing but I am interested in decent quality.
Just to make things more interesting I was also hoping for cards with 2 video outputs. This isn't necessary but would be REALLY nice.
