Ok so I'm computer illiterate to let you know ahead of time.

Well I have come to love the game of americas army, and as the games get more in depth, the lag becomes greater.  So as of right now, my gaming card is whatever is standard on my dell that I bought in 2003.  So i have about $75 to spend on a gaming card.  Which would be the best, and would it even make much of a difference?

Find out whether your motherboard has an AGP slot.

5200 AGP  $61.00

And I would do that how?

And how much of a difference would that make?

you people dont read. He said he has 75 bucks to spend. If he has 75 bucks to spend what makes you think he wants to spend 100? You can get a pretty decent video card for 75 bucks anyways.

yeah, if if you want to see a bigger difference you should save up some more money and go for the higher end video cards. if you go low end then you wont see a very big difference.

Voodoo = craptacular cards. ATI has the best cards, plus all the drivers for all there cards can be easily found on there site and or the cd that comes with any video card.

It feels good to be a gangster
