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:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0GHz
1024 DDR 333MHz
Oh and AGP cards are out of the question.

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.
