well i have a pretty old comp and esf lags so im gettin a new vid card cause all the other modes and resolutions wouldnt help and i think it lags cuz i have an integrated 8 mb card but i was wonderin i mean is it worth it?cuz i mean will gettin a new vid card help the computer overall or will it just help esf cuz its kinda dumb to spend 50 dollars for somethin thats only gonna help 1 game so this is my question?Does gettin a new vid card help the comp overall or just a couple of games?

just the vid card will help a bit but i think the rest of your parts have a part in this too so id suggest just a new computer
its easy to buy the parts, they dont have to be that great
build it yourself it shouldnt cost that much maybe under 1000

Like I said before enigma, the new video card will help and run it better. Not only with esf but with movies like you asked.

new comp, nuff said
Agreed...if you have an 8 megabyte integrated video card...jeeze...

Although I suspect if you were dense enough to try and use a machine like that, with an 8 meg integrated card, then you most likely won't be getting it installed properly either, since that gets a bit tricky.

It will definitely help but I doubt if it will make it run great. The other specs of your machine are important, too, and if that's what it has for video then it must be dramatically under par, possibly even for half-life.

you said yourself your comp is old,

a video card will not help u much, u need ram and a good proccesor, and a rather large hard drive.

a new comp will give u everything u need, plus upgrading an old comp is retarted in and of itself
