I know people keep saying the XT cards suck and you shouldn't get one, but I haven't seen anyone saying anything about a 512MB XT card.
So I'm wondering wich one of these two I should get. They're both PCI-E ofcourse and they cost exactly the same. I'm leaning towards XT 'cause of the 512MB but I don't know if it makes such a big difference.
Anyhow is the 6800XT 512MB really that bad?
Am I a moron for thinking it's good?
Is the 7600GT 256MB better?
Wich of the cards would work better with these stuff:
Get the 7600GT 256. 512m of video ram is useless if the card isnt fast enough to utilize it. My fx5700 had 128m of video ram and on nfs:mw i would only get 20 - 30 frames but my video ram would only be about 50-70% used. So the 6800XT will be useless with 512m of ram. 256 might even be overkill for it. Get the 7600.
Thanks for the replys fellas. I've ordered the 7600GT now so I hope I'll get it before the weekend. Even if I went with the 6800XT I'd have a real boost in my system.
I've got a FX5200 128MB, 1GHz AMD and a crappy abit motherboard. The only thing that's remotely good is my memory.
Ah I love the feeling of getting a new computer. I've ordered a complete new one in parts, even the chassie and a monitor.
