    Alright I recently bought a computer with an "Integrated Extreme Graphics Card with 64Mb available memory.

    Is that card better or worse (at gaming) than a 32mb Geforce 2 Card??

    Thats all I know on both of them. [​IMG]

    Im thinking of putting in the 32mb one from my old pc into this new one.......

    Ive never heard of an integrated graphics card.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Geforce2 is better, that's an integrated Intel Extreme Graphics, most likely (like an 865G, 865GE, or 845G chipset)

    Basically, the graphics are upgraded from an I740 base core, and really suck. (to give an example, a Trident BladeXP card would give them a run for the money) Best comparison for them is a Radeon VE (7000).

    The Geforce card would eat it alive. (plus you won't be doing a memory share)

    Thanks guys so much.
    Ive bought a new computer and my battlefield is still a little choppier than I would like it. Also buildings just look like there blending together.

    Sounds like my 32 mb geforce will see the light of day again! lol
    (or the darkness of my case)

    if possible id recommend you pick up a ti4200 or similar card as they are pretty cheap now and will help you out quite a bit, althou i really dont like Nvidia based cards much anymore the TI line is still pretty good. radeon 9600 is also a very good choice.

    Dude,

    My girlfriend's Geforce 2 card (in her PIII 450 computer!) still manages to hold on despite being hella old nowadays. Integrated graphics are a joke. They always seem to be about three years behind in terms of performance to the mainstream AGP slot crowd

    Dude,

    You may need a higher end card, depending upon your needs. I have a GeForce2 GTS, and can't play Unreal 2 with it.
