So I'm thinking I'd like to get a really fancy graphics card instead. I have my eye on an ATI radeon 9600XT. But I know little about computers, so my question is, is it worth putting a top-of-the-range-ish graphics card into an old P3 (733Mhz w/ 256 megs of RAM)? I am thinking mainly of emulators - would I get vastly improved performance to justify the cost?
Also, I only have SDRAM and in the product description it says "supports 128/256megs DDRAM". Does that mean I need DDRAM for the card to work? Also a friend of mine (who talks out of his arse alot) says that the card might melt if I put it in this PC. Is this true?
Any input would be appreciated.
