ok, i wanna ask you guys out there about this. I got around 120 pounds to buy a GPU, and i have narrowed it down to these two: ATI X800 GTO2 256mb Sapphire or Nvidia 6600 256mb which one? or if you have any better suggestions within this price margin please tell me :) all help and posts are much appreciated thanks corporaln00b
Well the X800 is pretty damn good, i am a Nvidia Fan, but in this case i would say go for the ATI
the X800 is equivilant to a Geforce 6800, just the normal 6800, not the GT, or Ultra..
So go for the X800, its a bit faster then the 6600
ok thanks :)
X800GTO by a large step.
PCI-E I assume
Since I don't think you can buy X800gto as an AGP.
yo i got a geforce 256mb 6600 graphics card and it really is a sweet graphics card of course ati x800 is abit faster but the 6600 is very very gd i can run battlefield 2 and farcry on full setting and its graphics and stuff runs sweet i run facry with the amd patch and the detail etc is lush i would say go for this as im a nvidia fan but go 4 wt evers best
Yeah and i have the 6600GT 128mb GDDR3 from MSI, Real good graphics card..
But i still believe the X800 is better :)
cant change my mind now XD just bought it along with my cpu :) be playing bf2 soon yay just out of curiousity, is there a map builder for bf2 and is your first time playing it really really good?
I don't know about the map making bit, but 1st time I played it online I just died every 30 secs and did not see anyone to shoot back.
So I put it on the shelf for a couple of weeks
I played the single player version for an hour or 2 and it all made a lot more sense.
Unless you are coming straight from battlefield 1942 and are a super killing machine, I say play the single player version, start to learn the maps, only for a couple of games and then go for it. Its a lovely game :) Just don't give up too easily
ok then the x800 it is :)
