I've got a good little computer here that came from the late 90s which has a great processor (2.6GhZ), 512MB of RAM and works efficiently as an office machine. However, for the purposes which I plan to use it (file-sharing and gaming), it's just not up to scratch.
I want to upgrade the hard drive (currently 12GB, I'd like 40 to 80 GB) and video card (currently a built-in-to-motherboard thing "VIA/S3G Unichrome Pro IPG" with 64MB, I'd like a good nvidia card).
The hard drive should be easy-I can buy a USB hub and a removable USB drive with 80GB, no questions, plug and play. However, the video card is harder. As a matter of fact, I have no idea which model to get, and I don't want to get gipped.
What is the best video card for gaming (3D graphics), that is still at a somewhat affordable price? Something with Hardware TnL is a must. Also, what about installation-is it hard?
Thanks for helping me. :)
