I just upgraded my video card to the ATI and WOW, what a difference. First, the game doesn't crash like it used to with the newest Nvidia drivers and second, the game looks soooo much better now.

Can't wait for the expansion http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I had a Geforce 4 card also, not a bad card, but I went with the ATI 9800 Pro and been having no problems. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I have a 250watt Dell 1.7GHZ.Iam currently using an ASUS GForceTi4200 128MB 8xAGP video card.I would like to upgrade to ATI 9800 pro;however,I was told that although 250watts was the required minimum of power,300watts was recommended inorder to avoid problems....Do you have any insights or suggestions???? what is your power supply?....thanks ed

I have a 300 watt PS on this old case from 1999 and no problems so far. I'd upgrade your PS before getting the 9800 pro for sure.

I had a measely old GeForce 4 MX420. Recently upgraded to Radeon 9700 Pro, and hot-damn does this thing rock!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

P.S.: I think a power supply upgrade is probably in order before you buy a 9800.
I myself have a 400 Watt PS, so no problems here. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
