Hey, my dad just gave me this graphics card and i was wondering if it's any good. It says it's a 3D prophet (kyro series), made by 'Hercules', 4000XT, 64mb.

I have no idea what most of that means and I know a load of you people are a bit more 'techno' than me, so yeah, is it any good? And also will it allow me to play ROME:total war?

cheers.

I have honestly no idea, but the best normally come from the nVidia or the Radeon range.

Besides that, Hi Jen!

I don't know much about it, but it should play Rome:toital war if you've got enough RAM

Anyway, how you doin' Jen?

hey both of you!

Doc: I can play ROME, but when i take my soldiers into battle I just get their shadows displayed - no men! So it's a bit crap really. I have an extremely bad graphics card now but a load of RAM (480MB). also I can't play the sims 2 right now! :(

RXP! do you know? please!

It'll work then definitely then, I played a Rome demo on my rig (2.8Ghz, 256 RAM, 64MB onboard graphics etc.) and it worked OK. The main problem was the RAM, I'm gonna get more.

The bottom line is it WILL work

ok then, wicked.

cheers, I'll probably put it into my computer then (which will result in system failure and the HDD being erased... :eek: ) yes, I'll do that now.
