    I know, I know, "just buy a different card, they're only $50 etc" but that I can't really do that at the moment. My mom bought a graphics card from one of her co-workers for $5, and it was an EVGA 7200 GS. Is this any better than a Intel GMA 950? Any better. I mean does it at least have hardware T&L? (main reason no games run on the GMA 950) Any like FPS benchmarks or anything?

    Yes, and yes. Great deal for just $5. Don't expect miracles but do expect a massive increase in gaming capability.

    Awesome. I was getting tired of the GMA 950. FFS it can't even handle most Source games. Finally I can play Portal. [​IMG]
