lmackintosh is still being judged by the masses


ATI Technologies Ati Firegl V3100 128mb Ddr Pci Express X16 Vga Dvi-i Video Card

I just got it for my home workstation and was wondering what happens if I play somthing like Doom3 on it. Will it damage the card? I do alot of 3d work and dont want to **** it up. Also got a gig of ram, and a 64 AMD processor.

So is it bad to use my work computer for games? or should I get one for gaming?

lmac.

it wont "damage" the card, but keep in mind those cards are optimized (hardware and driver) for content creation and not playing games... your FPS will not be as high as it would with a gaming card.
