Okay, so I'm buying a new laptop here in a couple of weeks and, while I'm throwing money around, I thought it might be a good idea to pony up to a new graphics card for my desktop. I'm not quite sure if that's going to do enough considering how low powered this system is however. here's a (very) basic rundown of what I have:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2GHz)
2 Gigs Ram (DDR 2)
nVidia GeForce 7300SE
I'm not really sure if I have a PCI Express or a PCI Express 2.0.
I don't want to buy a shiny new GeForce 8800 only to find that my processor and memory speed is holding it back. Given, the laptop that I'm buying will have 4 gigs of memory, an AMD X2 and a GeForce 9600M GT, but I'd also like a little more omf in my desktop as well.
Would it be worth it? Or would it be like grandma's boob job?
