It depends/no not really...

by TomSal In reply to gforce video cards

First off, let me speak from my over 15 year gaming experience first - Geforce cards rock! They are the best video cards on the market for the modern day PC gamer.

Hands down!

(Too bad they are as expensive as ****....I'm talking the "Ultra" and the Geforce 3 models here)

Now for your root question - first name the application, there are many apps. How do we know if you are talking a graphic package or even CAD (not that you'd run either one on a dog slow machine, but you get my drift)?

On spreadsheets, word processors - I can't possibly see how any video card in the world will help you out. Sure the interface will refresh faster and look snazzier, but who the **** cares if your Word document's format bar looks great? And ifyour eyes are good enough to see the refresh cycle of say 70 hz then damn...you definitely aren't in need of glasses anytime soon.

All joking aside, the main point is it depends what apps you are running and how slow of a machine are we talking.
Take care.

-Tom
