    Hi all,

    I've got an AMD 2800+ pc with an old Radeon 7500 gfx card. Doom 3 chugs along at what looks like almost a frame a second.

    I don't whant to spend loads of dosh for just one game, so can anyone recommend something for around £75 that will make the game playable.

    I was looking at something like a Radeon 9600Pro card. Will that do the job or is there something better/better value for the performance I need?

    Thanks in advance.

    Gary.

    Try and source a second hand 9800 / 9700Pro, both will obliterate the 9600Pro doing anything, but especially in newer DX9 games. Have a look here for Doom 3 specifics, and here for a general performance comparison. :)
