    Best card for this comp

    AMD Athlon XP, 1466 MHz (11 x 133) 1700+
    ECS K7S5A (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 AMR, 2 SDR DIMM, 2 DDR DIMM, Audio)
    512 Mo (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)

    What could be the best videocard for a system like this... to get optimal performances in games? I know it's a mediocre system but it's my buddy's pc and he doesn't want to upgrade it just yet.. Could a 9600xt fill the shoes of his gf4mx400? or would the computer slow everything down ?

    9600XT would be a good choice, however, if budget allows go for 6600GT, which is a much better card and should last longer.
    CPU would be a bottleneck, but he could enable some visual goodies and up the resolution, so its not like card would go to waste.

    Yeah, I recommended the 6600GT to a buddy with a 2.0ghz P4 setup. He listened, bought it, and loves it.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.
