Oh No! Unprepared.

Post by uatec » Fri Sep 15, 2006 3:20 pm

I've just realised that the only graphics card I've got is a Matrox Millenium G400 32mb, circa 1999. Does anybody have a card capable of gaming that I could borrow this weekend?

Thanks...
Moo!

GForce 5200. Then 6x series. Current is 7x series. So not astonishingly good, but will play modern games at 1024 with all the fancy bits turned off at 30 fps (touch wood). Perhaps you should dive into PCWorld on the way in to LAN Party?

Well we shall see whether my sodding pay cheque has gone through. If it hasn't I would be quite greatful for the loan of this card.

Cheers Bud.

I have a Radeon 9800XT AGP, dunno if this is better than the aforementioned nVidia effort. Runs nice and hot too! I shall bring it along...
