Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader

\015 I have a Dell Dimension 4500 ID 6CRQN11. I am looking to upgrade the graphics card so it will run PetVet 2 and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, both require pixel shader. Trying to stay under $100, any recommendations?\015

Answers :

Hi,

The recommended card for that game is a ATI Radeon 9800 or nVidia Geforce FX 5600.

If you are wanting to play some high end games then i would recommend ATI Radeon Sapphire 9500 pro.


All mentioned cards should cost less than $100.




Regards.
This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.
