Graphics card upgrade - would the bang match the bucks?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, Would anyone be able to help with a question regarding upgrading ATI graphics cards?I currently have the ATI Radeon 8500 and having upgraded much of the rest of my system, I'm curious to know whether lashing out on a new card (probably one of the '9800' models) would deliver a noticable improvement in FPS/image quality within FS2004.My current system spec is:Athlon XP 2700Gigabyte GA-7N400-L1 (Nvidia NForce2)2*256mb Samsung PC3200 400 DDR RAMATI Radeon 8500 64MB AGPMitsubishi Diamond Plus 93SBMS Windows XP HomeDirectX 9.0AIf someone could give me some indication of the difference I could expect, I'd be very grateful for helping me decide whether It's worth the spondulicks.Cheers,C.J.
