I wanna install a video card for my old PC:

Amd Athlon 64 3200+
2G Ram

Does Albatron 8600 GTS work with my motherboard?

or should I look at other entry level cards like 8400gs or g210

I am not good at hardware. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks

Send private message - compare different models... personally Id probably choose the 8600GTS over the 8400GS,and avoid the GT210...

If you can find one, an 8800GT is a brilliant card for that age of machine - I had one (and just sold it) for my FX60 and games etc flew along (except the latest stuff such as Bad Company, COD4:MW2) etc).

If youre wanting to play the latest games, then youre best to upgrade the whole system.
