Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I am new to this forum and have a question about my video card and sound card for Thief 3. I noticed that Thief 3 will not support my GEForce 2MX card, what should I update it to when I have enough money for a new card and could anybody tell me what the average price of a new card is today? Also, is SoundMax compatible with Thief 3 or will there be skipping voices? I hate it when that happens. Thanks for all your help and suggestions! :)

P.S. What about an XFX GeForce4 MX440 64MB AGP Video Card? Will that work? :confused:

All MX cards will not work with Thief 3 PC. Now that that's out of the way, I think you should check out the prices on video cards here:

pricewatch (http://www.pricewatch.com/)

Since I don't know how much money you are willing to spend, this should give you a good idea of prices. Next take a look at the supported vid cards here:

SUPPORTED GRAPHICS CHIPSETS:
ATI RADEON 8500
ATI RADEON 9 SERIES (9000,9200,9500,9600,9700,9800)
NVIDIA GEFORCE 3TI SERIES
NVIDIA GEFORCE 4TI SERIES
NVIDIA GEFORCE FX SERIES
NVIDIA GEFORCE 6 SERIES
GRAPHICS CARD MUST SUPPORT PIXEL SHADER 1.1!

and the unsupported here:

UNSUPPORTED GRAPHICS CHIPSETS:
NVIDIA GEFORCE 4MX (460, 440 & 420)
NVIDIA GEFORCE 4 GO
NVIDIA QUADRO FX GO
NVIDIA GEFORCE NFORCE2 & NFORCE3

back in december i bought an xtacy card. this is by ati, its basically a 9600 pro but at 256mb instead of 128. couple that with my memory at 768mb or something like that, thief 3 didnt even jerk once. so i have no complaints about the card i have.
