    Hi Guys,could anyone please suggest a decent inexpensive graphics card for my Asrock motherboard. I have had nothing but trouble with the ATI card and not one reply from them since I bought it not long ago. I need a pci graphics card for a asrock 775 4coreduel-sata2 r2 motherboard.

    My specs are :
    Win xp pro
    asrock 775 4coreduel-sat2 motherboard
    graphics at the moment is : ati 4670
    RAM 2 Gig 667
    sata HD
    psu - 580 Hyper

    Appreciate any advice, thank you.

    hi ur slot is a x4 speed slot, so ur losing alot of performance with ur card and that may be causing the issues, as it really needs x16 speed, but if a x16 card will run ok on a x4 slot then maybe a 8800gt will be ur best bet fro upgrade unless u need more power ?




    hi my advice would be to do this, but a new mobo/cpu/ram and use current card



    Asus P5QL Pro Intel P43

    Hi Damien, thanks for the help. At this moment in time, buying the three items would be a no go. I just could not afford to do it yet. I might however start off with buying a new motherboard.

    Cheers for now.
