    Question best graphics card that will fit in a SN41G2

    what is the best graphics card that I can fit in my SN41G2 (am happy to cut giant holes in side)

    preferably want a directX 9 card - for half life 2 when it appears.

    would the Asus ATI Radeon 9800XT/TVD 256MB
    Graphics Card fit for example (assuming i have the money)

    What limitations / size issues do i have to worry about with cards?

    cheers

    only limitation with cards is ones like the 5900's that take up 2 slots, a 9800 will fit in easy though got a 9700pro in mine and they're the same size iirc

    Dont get a 256mb card, as they are a waste of money, games wont need the full 256mb of gfx RAM so it would be wasted.

    ile second that blockers,,256mb cards are nothing more than a gimmic and there also clocked slower than there 128mb counterparts (waste of money springs to mind) theres not a game on the market atm that will make use of a 256mb card!

    cheers, esp advice about the 256mb. haven't looked into gfx cards much yet and only picked the 9800XT as an example as it is on the front page at overclockers.

    now need to start saving the pennies...
