I'm looking to upgrade my video card - ATI HD2600XT for better framerates (somewhat like a miraculous improvement)
I'm using WinXP (DX9) with an Intel 1.8Ghz core2duo cpu, 2GB of RAM and a 1680x1050 LCD screen.
I'm using a 475watt psu. I don't have blue-ray.
I was thinking that an expensive video card would not be sensible since my cpu is not all that fast & will only "bottle neck" it.
And to top it off, most video cards these days are optimized for DX10/11, blue-ray etc... which I am not using.
