Can anybody help me find a PCI video card that will run telltale's games?

Well, my old Dell Dimension 2400 with integrated Intel graphics chipset has failed me at last. After running Sam and Max and Strong Bad on it fine, I have hit a wall with Wallace and Gromit and am looking for a video card.

The problem I'm having is that the Dimension 2400 only has a PCI bus, not PCI Express or AGP. What PCI cards would be sufficient for my purposes? I'm also looking to spend as little as possible, due to being broke.

Thanks in advance for any help - I'm pretty clueless.

  • you could go with an ATI Radeon 9550, or a Gforce 5600 or similar
  • Would a Radeon 9200 or Geforce 5200 be good enough?
  • the radeon 9200 i had in my old pc 6 years ago it had 128 mb of vram so according to min specs of wallace and gromit and tales of mi if you want to play that, it should be fine.

    edit - there does seem to be some confusion whether the 9200 will run dx9 games which tomi and w&g require - someone else may confirm that.

    2nd edit looked at the back of some of my old games i ran on that pc and some say dx9 required so you shouldnt have a problem with that card.
