I am currently preparing a build but i want my graphics card to be direct x 10 compatiable so I thought of getting a low end card. I am looking at the XFX Geforce 7300GS, but i thought i would get some input on this. Any cards you suggest would also be appreciated. It has to be a Nivdia card though and around 75 dollors. It would mainly be used for games like UT2004 and SOF2 mabey oblovion (as everyone i know wants me to try it). High graphics settings are a plus but not needed, just as long as it runs on medium or higher.
Try going for the 7600 GS its as powerful as an 6600 GT and has all the GF 7 featuers 7300/7400 arnt good cards for games these days.
If you're only playing games like UT2004 and SoF2, a 7300 will be fine. But for anything modern like Oblivion...not good.
Well like i said i will be upgrading soon to somthing like a 7900GT only Direct X 10 compatiable. There is a good chance i wont be playing oblivion so it dosent matter that much. Just as long as it runs SOF.
If you want a low end card with pretty good performance, take a look at the 256MB 7300GT. They have 8 pixel pipelines instead of only 4 like in the 7300GS which makes them faster than 6600GT's and currently cost a little less, newegg has a 256MB-256bit (most are 128bit) version selling for $86 right now.
I looked at the 7600GS and the 7300GT and I thing that i'm going to go with the GT as they are closer to my price range and look pretty good. Now all I have to do is pick one out.
Go for an FX5200. They're really cheap, but they run nicely for the price tag. I can still run games like Halo, CoD2, UT04...
No man those cards suck ass the Geforce 7300 GT is 5 times better than a crappy FX 5200.
I have heard some bad things from friends who have FX5200's, so I am reluctant to get one.
I had a FX5200, and yes, i can tell you some bad things about them....
Go with the 7300GT, its a great performing card for the price point. Much, Much better than any FX5200. From the benchmarks i've seen, the 7300GT performs about the same as a 6600GT (faster in some games, slightly slower in others). I just ordered the 256MB/256 bit XFX 7300GT from Newegg for $86 to replace my painfully slow X300.
