Hi,

I have been extremely busy and have not had a change to upgrade my PC for a
while. This summer finally I get to do that. I am going to upgrade the whole
thing including the video card. I am thinking about upgrade from Radeon
9600XT 128MB to GeForce 6800 Ultra 512MB. Can anybody tell me how much
louder is it going to be compare to 9600?

Thanks

good thing.

Hey incidentally, while we're on the topic.
I am thinking of doing the same thing! Although I'm planning on a 6800GT.

So, if anyone can help me, is it going to be worth waiting to get a 7800GT?

Or should I just get a 6800 Ultra when the 7800 range is out - as the 6800
range should go down in price?

Many TIA.

AMD Athlon XP 2600+, 512 DDR, 9600XT 256MB.

It all depends on which brand of 6800U you get.

We'll have to see some more comprehensive testing to tell, even then with
Beta drivers we won't get the full picture until it hits the streets.

The 6800 (in any flavor) is a huge leap over your 9600XT. (No flies on
the 9600XT, it was the best Value Card for over a year, quite a reign).
How long to wait depends on how much you are enjoying, or not enjoying,
your current games and your current bank (or bank card) balance.

#AMD Athlon XP 2600+, 512 DDR, 9600XT 256MB.

BTW, you need more DDR, Newegg has Corsair 2x512MB CAS2.5 for $77. I have two
pair (in 2 machines), Good Stuff(tm).

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, that's one of those things - bank balance. No matter which card I get,
I'm going to have to get at least more ram. So I need to factor in that
cost, too.

Currently my budget is around AUD600 (for the card). 6800GTs are currently
going for anywhere between AUD525 and AUD590 at this extremely good, and
extremely cheap, computer parts seller.

So...do you have any ideas when we will see the 7800 range available for
retail? And how much do you think it will be? I've tried hunting around on
the net for news...but I can't find any feasible price ranges that make
sense.

If I get a 7800, I'll almost definitely need a new CPU and maybe motherboard
(and a much larger budget ;)  ). So...I'm thinking of just getting a 6800GT
and more ram for now. Then later on a faster CPU. Will current CPUs run on a
PCI-E board? I'm assuming they will...which means I could upgrade to a new
board next year and a 7800.

My next problem is wherther to get a 6800GT or an Ultra - do u think there
will be a large price decrease when the 7800 range is released? That's
really why I'm waiting for the 7800 range.

Sorry for all the questions, but any help at all is very much appreciated.

Thanks so much!!
