I just bought a Gainward Nvidia Ge Ti4800 128 meg video card.
You want to know something. I can't tell a difference between that and my 64 meg GsForce 2/MX400. At least not in the frame rates. Okay, I finally got all of my resolutions back, thankfully, and I can switch between windowed mode and Full screen mode without a bothersome error message popping up, but I'm not seeing any real frame rate increases. I'm still doing between 5-7 on the ground, with sliders at 75% of the way up. Still crashing the program with T&L enabled.
Oh yeah, I bought a pair of those '3D Glasses.' POS. Don't buy them.
I guess my next move is to save up a couple of hundred extra bucks, and go buy a new mobo and new processor. Anybody play with the new Barton core AMDs yet?
