OK, so I'm not the cutting edge of Technology, but when my computer starts to show its age, I like to give it a bit of a face lift.

My PC was running an Nvidia GeForce 4 MX420 64 MB graphics card. When I got the computer for a graduation gift (Computers are more useful than a car at college) in May of 2003, it was a VERY good card. But now, 3 years later, I got Doom 3 for Christmas one year, and having to run it at 640x480 resolution was pretty humiliating. So from then on I wanted to get a new graphics card. Well, I finally got it! a GeForce (Hey...I like Nvidia!) 6200 256Mb card. I played a game of Age of Empires 3 and it ran it a lot quicker than it used to, so I'm quite pleased. And at a mere $60, it was well worth the money.
