Hey ive, been looking for a new graphics card and im not sure which card to get for a good budget. i was curious what do you guys use?
i use an ATi radeon 9600xt 256mb. cost me just over £100 uk
i use a 9800 pro 128mb. decent performance, but could use double the RAM to eliminate hitching (large textures in doom 3)
which card u should get depends on what u mean by "good budget". how much can u spend? let us know and we can probably give u a few good suggestions. my personal favourite is the geforce 6800 GT. not exactly cheap, but it dishes out fantastic performance, and comes close to the Ultra version - which isnt worth the extra money unless u have too much cash. the GT is a great choice
otherwise, a vanilla 6800 should do the trick, or one from the newer budget line, the 6600 GT.
my personal opinion is to get a card with 256mb RAM. gone are the days when such amount of RAM was unnecessary... with games like doom 3, extra memory will definitely help.
I've got a Geforce 6800 myself, with 1 gig of RAM, and I can run games like Half Life 2 smoothly with everything maxed out. I'd suggest getting just a pretty good card, then getting lots of RAM, it helps out alot.
Ah cool for the feed back. Yeh im In the UK So its extremely expensive for pretty much anything :( At the moment Im using A geforce 4 Ti 4200.
I was thinking of getting the 6800 but its way out of my range but apparently with that card DooM 3 Looks more like a movie than a game? And does anyone know about The new Geforce FX5900 ZT? What would you say those Radeon 9800 Pros are like?
Oh (Edit) Lab rat, what about your 9600XT? I was thinking of getting one, what card have you got As in is it a Microstar, or Novatech etc? And does anyone know about The new Geforce FX5900 ZT? Cheers all
mines a Sapphire and the clock speeds (if you want them) are: core- 500mhz mem - 300mhz thats not overclocked by me, they are the standard speeds
ah cool. Im not to sure about clock speeds with graphic cards :uhm: Would you recomend getting it? and where did you get yours? Novatech?
With the games nowadays being a bit troublesome in the graphics card department. It would be good to get a list of cards that work perfectly with this game (tried and tested by you). Just post back the specs that work, graphics card specificly (with make). prices not required. ;)
no Prices Eh? Get a Geforce 6800 With atleast 256MB of RAM
(Thats if you can afford it haha. The Britts aka my unlucky ass, have to spend around £300 to £350 for one) I think the americans have to pay something like $300 to $500? Am I Right ? Please correct me if im wrong.
I would die without GF
