    A friend has bought The Sims 2 and the Bon Voyage Expansion Pack but her onboard FX doesnt support T&L...(I think) as the screen flashes Purple+black
    (Iam limited as to checking as I only know what she can tell me)

    Can anyone Tell me whats the lowest or cheapest AGPx8 card i can get that will
    run The Sims 2:Bon Voyage (and perhaps the rest of the sims)

    She only plays that game (older version works fine The Sims 2) so wont need it for anything else so a 64Mb card with T&L (any version) seems to be compatible...

    Im UK and use eBuyer.com for products... whats the cheapest/best option for her?
