Lord Anubis;4116101Cool, another question that you've reminded me of. Whats the difference between GS, GT, GTS??
I forgot to mention that I use dual displays if that matters as to the choice of video cards.
Thats just the video card makers trying to confuse the hell out of us.
In a perfect world, its GS < GTS < GT but that ain't the case anymore. Don't make your choice based upon whatever they put at the end, but by the specs.
long live ATi! i say 100$ 150 about avg csot new eggs ahs soem 2900xt for 149
try to wait a month, because its possible that nvidia is gonna launch a low budget model of the 8800 gt. which is gonna cost very less MAX 150€. The 8800 gt is a very good card, so if you pay slightly more for the 8800 gt 256mb i think you are gonna be happy.
Here's a few more suggestions:
This would be my pick. It performs a little faster than a X1950 Pro, but probably would be a few fps slower than a X1950XT. But, you would get DX10 support, and all the new features of the Radeon HD series. Only downsides are that its 256MB, and needs a big PSU.
Would be good if you can't spend a little extra for a 2900GT or X1950, its the GDDR4 version, its factory overclocked and should be able to outperform the 8600GTS, but maybe not the GT.
The DDR3 version of the 2600XT, its not as fast as the 8600's or 2600XT GDDR4, but it also costs alot less.
mmh but those cards arent really great arent they?
Not amazingly great, but not exactly bad.
why are we recommending them? better save a little bit extra money..
Because he said he only wanted to spend around $100, or a little more, and those happen to be the best cards in that price range.
If he doesn't need them for running the newest games at the highest settings, those cards would suit him fine, and would be able to run pretty much any older game at max settings.
oke i agree, but if he wants a card that is gonna be better then his previous one, i think in my opinion look for a card priced at 150$+(max 200)

I've looked at cards in that price range and while they are quite nice they simply don't fit into my budget currently and I don't believe my current video card is going to survive much longer based on how its been acting as of late.
For any of those that may be curious my current card is a ATI Radeon X1300 Pro 256MB. Any of the cards that have currently been suggested would be a great improvement to what I currently have. Also I'd like to state that my current card despite its current problems can run all of the games that I've been playing just fine on medium to high specs.
