Getting close to perfection

Almost done… since it is not yet at my home, i am able to look for one of the major puzzle pieces missing in my 2003/2004 gaming rig – The Graphics Card.

Again I will be guiding myself based on my memories and I am not sure why, but I always didn’t like Nvidia the same way I didn’t like Intel. Maybe they have been too much mainstream for me. I don’t like my company car either, i would have driven something more unique if that would have been an option…

Anyways…no Nvidia, that’s for sure. So I will need an ATI (meanwhile bought by AMD) but this one should be a real ATI. I tried to look up on lists and benchmarks from 2003 and 2004 and almost everybody recommended an ATI X800 + random suffix. The best possible card would have been an ATI Radeon X800 XT but they are pretty hard to find and if you are lucky enough to find them, they are quite expensive. So i decided to go with something a bit smaller:

Retro Grafikkarte

So, released in 2004, the ATI Radeon X800 Pro was the second best graphics card in ATIs portfolio and i was lucky enough to find a cheap one on Ebay again. I am absolutely pumped on to see how it performs with 2003 and 2004 games. Can’t wait to get it working.

Next stop will be peripherals…and i expect nothing more than a pretty rough situation there…
