I'm currently running a P4 3.0Ghz Presscot, 6600gt 256Mb AGP, 2Gb DDR400, 74Gb Raptor, 500W Antec. I want more performance but don't have the budget to go PCIE. Do you think an upgrade to the Gainward 7800GS+ golden sample 512Mb (effectivly a 7900GT) would be worth the money?I play games like Doom3 and Quake4 in 1280x1024 but am struggling when using anti aliasing etc. It would be nice to go to a higher resolution as well but the 6600gt starts to suffer.
I want a card before Christmas though. The X1950 Pro sounds good but only has 256Mb, I want to be able to play games like Crysis when it comes out althouh it's optimised for DX10 cards it should still run very well on a Gainward 7800GS+ 512Mb. The extra RAM would probably be very beneficial. Also in a dilema weather to wait and get a PS3. (oops! sorry don't bite). Any other suggestions anyone?
Can anyone else help me. PCIE is out of the question at the moment my only option is to buy a Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ 512Mb AGP (7900GT Core) or an ATI X1950Pro 256Mb AGP. Can we take a vote which everyone else would choose from the 2 cards above?
