New Gpu for my new pc

I'm pretty much set with all the parts of my new pc except for a gpu, my budget is $200, can't go any further and i need a card that runs well with bf2 and quake4 at least at 1280x1024 resolution. Can anyone help me out since im a noob with grafix cards?
anyway im on pci-e and im jumping from a 9250 so anything would be an upgrade :P

  1. I Say Go With One Of These :
    1- Sapphire Radeon X1800GTO
    2 - Leadtek PX7600GT Extreme Edition (590MHz/1600MHz)
    I Think These Are The Best Choice For Your Money ...
  2. Yeah I agree, they both look good.
  3. I decided to go with the 7600gt and all i can say is wow, i can play bf2 at max settings without lag at all. 10000 times better than my 9250. Thanks for the help.
  4. That was fast.

    i hate it when people say "max settings with no lag at all"


    sounds like the reviewers from newegg

    heh
  6. err let me be more specific.. 1024x768 (my usual resolution when gaming) and at max settings with around 20+ players, why dont u try it and see.

    u have dynamic lighting on high, 4x anti-alias on ?


    -grr

    u check your fps ?

    renderer.drawFps 1 <-- console command :D
  8. Лучший выбор - 7600 GT. Она быстрее чем Radeon 1800 XT, а стоит дешевле. Правда на разгон памяти не рассчитывай - его просто не может быть (предельная частота). The best choice - 7600 GT. It is faster than Radeon 1800 XT, and costs more cheaply. The truth on dispersal of memory do not expect - it be simple cannot (limiting frequency).

    I was wondering what that text was .....

  10. Отвечаю сразу всем: "Я говорю по-русски, потому что я из России". Но к теме это отношения не имеет. I answer at once to all: " I speak Russian, because I from Russia ". But to a theme it is attitudes has no.
  11. Лучше скажите как мне свой 7600 GT заставить работать так как он должен, а то 5800 очков в 3D Mark 2005 - это не его предел. Is better tell as me the 7600 GT to force to work as it he should, and that 5800 glasses in 3D Mark 2005 are not his limit.

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe he was just looking for some post-purchase reassurance. *shrug*

    Wow,This Is F**king Fast...
  15. u have a venice core and u OC'd it to 2.1 ghz ?

    dont u want to go higher ?

    :wink:
  16. yep playing bf2 all maxed out online ya right bs I say no lag even the best of the best of the best have a hard time at that.
  17. Why you compare all by results of in BF2? It is necessary to compare on real games of type You Are Empty or F.E.A.R., and that to smoothing.

    Yes , I Like To Reach 2.3~2.4 ... But My Memory is Holding Me Back ... (4x512Mb Kingmax DDR400) & I Think It`s Enough For Me ... I`m Not A HardCore OverClocker... I Can`t Push My Memory Any More ... :(
  19. ohh ok

    i was thinking the memory was holding u back
  20. Just change your memory divider...I'm running 4x512 of crappy value ram and I have my Venice to 2.4 prime stable..

    At 2.4, your ram on a 166 divider should be exactly 200MHz.

    False ... I Use Memory Divider & My Memory Sets To 166MHz ... But CPU-Z & Bios Said That in 240x9 (2160MHz) My Memory Reaches 200MHz Not At 2400MHz ...
    Can You Tell Me All Of Your Voltages & Freqs ??
    I Really Want To Reach 2.3~2.4 ...
    & One More Thing is My Timings Are 2.5-3-3-7-2T

    My bad, I thought I saw you had a 3200+ like me. My x10 helps. Why not just set the memory to 133 and push the HT clock higher? Or better yet, does your board do 1/2 step mem dividers?

    ... I Tried That But When I Used 133MHz Memory My System Didn`t Boot ... I Don`t Know Why ... :(
    Any Way ... I Think 360MHz Is Not a Bad OverClocking ... I`m Planning To Get 2x1Gb OCZ Platinum & Then I Will Try To Reach 2.3~2.5 ... But For Now I Think This Is Enough For Me ... BTW Thank For The Tips ... :twisted:
  25. Maybe that is because the post said he played bf2 all maxed out online and I say bs Maybe I sould take that back anyone can play bf2 all maxed but performance might be a problem, I play all high except for a few items so there should be no problem with all high except for a few thing like effects and that is becase a person cant see a bloody thing with effects at high.
  26. Lol been back and read all your posts, quite funny actually... Let me clear this up, the max settings i was talking about isnt max, its like high only and i do experience lag sometimes when i play with 40+ players. Anyway, the evga 7600gt was a great buy especially with their customer service warranty etc.
  27. oh k


    so everything on high .....

    with a little Lag, stutter whatever

    oh while your in a fire fight with some Noob Push alt+tab

    its worth it :wink:
