What do you guys think?

This is going to be my setup for my new computer.

SAPPHIRE Radeon X800GTO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 FireBlade Edition Video Card
Rosewill 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor Model
Socket 939 ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard.

Do you thinks i will be able to maybe run fear at max settings at 1027*1024.

I'm going to use the copmuter mostly for gaming.

  1. Yeah I think im going to ditch the 2gb go for the 1 gb and get the 7800gt.
    the diffrence is less then 50 $. You think i will get better frame rates like this or with the other set up?
  2. hell yeah it will. 7800GT kicks ass, 2Gb wont matter unless you play battlefield 2.
  3. Well, the 7800 GT is awesome card. More bang for the buck compare to the GTX. It can play fear really well, but disable softshadows and dynamic light cause its' the games frame rate killer. 1 Gb is decent, but if you play BF2 then you might wanna consider 2 Gb. But right now the best one to get is the 7800 GT for system. Go for it.

    But Im pretty sure you can pawn 2 Gb for less like a value ram. Not really the best, but I use 2 Gb value ram in one of my system and overclocked it. It was awesome, play FEAR and BF2 with no stutter whatsoever.
  4. Is there a reason why you chose that mATX motherboard? For $85 you could get an EpoX EP-9NPA3Ultra nF4 ATX board, faster with more room:
  5. There's nothing "wrong" with it, it's just not a board I would get for a gaming rig even if I needed the microATX form factor.
  6. I dont know much about motherboards thats why i was getting that one. Since it was ati and the video card i was getting was ati i thought they might be a little more compatible. But since im getting the 7800 instead. I'll go with another board. I dont plat battelfield 2 mostly half life 2 and now fear. Also age of empires 3.
  7. Hey guys I also found the ati 850xt for 90 less then the 7800 gt do you guys think the performance on the 7800gt is worth the 90 bucks. Or are these 2 cards almost the same performance wise.
  8. 7800GT is alot better plus it is more future proof as the x8xx series are all pixelshader 2.0 model cards.
