Hello there. I am still more incline towards plan A.
Plan A means to build my rig from the start. The potential specs for the righ would be using
and a Gefore 3, 4 or one of the ATI Radeon 9000s card.
A potential plan B came up unexpectedly.
The potential plan b machine I could get is lower cost and lower spec machine literally.
I might have the chance to purchase a HP VECTRA VL 400 with 1GZ and a Matrox gf450 for super low sum.
It would be cheaper than all the components I have envised.
The specs are way lower of course but it would be cheap and simple way to get my first gaming rig. That's why it is tempting somehow to consider it.
There is not much to say about the cpu a 1 GHz Pentium 3 sounds like a peroid correct cpu. Nothing wrong with it.
But how about the matrox g450? I have only heard about the g200 and g400 which were seen as decent cards for their time frame. They are good but not the best of the best.
Have not read much about the 450 . Is the G450 something like enhanced g400.
And how suited would be matrox g450 for 1997 to 2000 gaming?
Can the matrox g450 still be seen as sutitable despite the fact it would be much lower powered than my plan graphics card?
Would be pleased if the matrox users (if ithere are any) could share their experience with the card?
Thanks for the help in advance
