a little lag may happen, but amd = gaming machines.

nvidia has always worked for me..

im running one right now in mine

depends on what you mean by -ordinary gaming-

plus almost every card will give you great performance

the price is a factor..

but compare before you buy!..

all i can say as right now.

i would say spend the extrx $50 and get the BFG 6600 card it is about 200% faster then the ati you were locking at. Nvidia is a much beter GPU then ATI. and 1000% faster then that card you got now.

would I still get descent performance with my processor

yes you have a good processor, you would be able to run BF2 on all medium at 1024x768 with now problem. you could play doom 3 with all settings on high at 1024x768, get that card and then in a few weeks get some more ram.

i disagree doom3 on all high with 384mb ram, is not happening, unless u have nothing in the background running, even then it wont be smooth.

It will work its when he puts it utlra settings is when he is going to have a problem,  i have doom 3 running a 1.7ghz p4 with 512mb of ram and a geforce fx 5600 with no problem. when a game is at a resolution higher then 640x480 its all on the video card,

there is no way you can have a decent gaming machine starting out with that system - upgrading your ram will give you some boost - not a lot at all - your processor power is holding you back big time buddy - screw getting a new video card, save up some money and get something you can actually game with
