    thats a very old graphics card. i had that but was not able to play POP SOT.

    well i suggest that the games u wanna play are performing good then no need to change the card

    but still if u want better graphics for ur games, then pls say what ur budget is so that anyone can suggest u what will be good for u.

    btw i guess ur motherboard has AGP slot, and if ur planning on upgrading ur motherboard in the near future then dont buy a new AGP card,, cos latest technology is PCI-e cards, so if u buy a motherboard with PCI slot then u can buy a PCI based graphics card.

    for a decent card i wud say u cud go for Geforce 6200 256mb card. or if u want better then u can go for 6600 gt, and if u have money to throw away, u can go for 7800 series.

    just look for a gefroce 6200 non ultra AGP or FX 5700/5900XT used, U might find these under Rs 5000

    if u can stretch your budget, then get a XFX Geforce 6600GT AGP with 128 MB RAM

    7800? Dude, that was released nearly 8 months ago, now they have 7900 GTX of 512 MB which can run F.E.A.R. at 2500X2100 resolution smooooothly. :) You can only buy this if you have more budget, its sooo expensive cause its new and released nearly 2 months ago. Bottomline, if you want to throw away money then buy this card which has the ULTIMATE performance.

    In my opininon upgrading frm MX 4000 to FX 6200 wont b such a good option. U will feel like wasting money as there is not much performance gain. I suggest u wait for some time or try to find a used 6600 GT( dont even think of going for non GT) from ebay or somewhere else

    U mean 10 FPS...or even lower...maybe 5. It wont be able to cross 100 FPS even on 1024x768...X1900XTX gives better performance on most games except DOOM and UT...which seem to suit the nVidia chipset more

    You can only use a PCI card (not PCI express). But this is not recommended as the performance you will get out of it is questionable. If your mobo dosen't have AGP or PCI express it's safe to conclude that even the processor is underpowered for new games. You'd be better off buying a new rig. Still if you can't afford a new rig, get a PCI version of the FX5200 for about Rs. 2500-3000.

    No way out except to buy a new mobo. Either save until you can get a new mobo and proccy or buy a PCI card and play 2 year old games.

    help -should i upgrade ..

    my current system cofiguration is as follows :

    P4 2.4 ghz 1 mb L2 cache (533 mhz bus )
    HIS mobo 845 GVM-L with a 8x AGP slot.
    XFX GeFORCE MX 4000 ,(256 bit 128 mb DDR)
    512 mb Dynet DDR ram
    80 gb seagate harddisk
    double layer dvd writer (sony)
    etc. etc

    As u can see i have a GeFORCE MX 4000 which almost runs well,for some of the latest games (like most wanted),they r satisfactory ...but do not give that performance i am lookin for..

    1)So i want to buy a new AGP card from XFX of 256 mb DDR and 256 -bit graphics core..
    my budget is pretty low around 3.5-4 k

    i have heard of theXFX 5200 and 5700 if not mistaken one of them is for 3.5k
    plzz (if possible plzz quote the latest prices for both)tell me which graphics card will do according to my budget and also it shud be a 256 mb ddr with 256 bit graphics core.. ..


    2)also tell me current price of the MX 4000 i own so that i can sell it half rate ....
    #please note the prices should be acoording to the latest lamington road prices,mumbai!!

    thanx in advance...
