Spend the extra $15... for $99 you can get a Radeon X1650 XT on newegg.

Excellent card for $100, and worlds better than most sub-$100 cards.

Ati and Nvidia are different manufacturers, but both are very good. You just need to find the best bang for your buck.
Ati makes the Radeon brand, Nvidia makes the Geforce brand.

It's one of the most graphically demanding games. What are the specs to the rest of your computer?
April 20, 2007 8:34:12 PM

e4300 OCed to 2.6, 1.5gb ram, ds3

An X1650XT would do you wonders. What's the absolute most you could spend?
April 20, 2007 8:35:42 PM

Nvidia is a GPU manufacturer and its mean competitor is ATI....
While Geforce is a gpu series from Nvidia :!:
For a card under 85 bux , Its really enough to play Dave 2 or Doom 1 at Max resolution :lol:

how about this X1650

That'd be a nice upgrade. What kind of card are you using now?
April 20, 2007 8:42:42 PM

ok.. thanks dude by the way is foxconn a nice company? (in graphic card categories)
April 20, 2007 8:52:33 PM

can i buy any cheap card and overclock it till this 7600gt.. because i have 80$ and i will take 5$ from my parents ( this will be the shipping charges). so tell me any card about 80$
April 20, 2007 9:26:01 PM

yo man, from what i've noticed is that its mostly not about what card your using, but what game your playing. most game manufacturer has a GFX company i.e. ATI, Green Giant. and optimise's the game for that card maker. look at the game box or check the website to see what GFX card maker they recommend and go for that one. its the only way you'll get the most out of your game and your card. this is what i do, and most the games i play are ATI optimized, so i go for that one.

Uhh, I think you've fallen prey to console marketing BS. Oblivion is currently one of the, if not the most graphically taxing games on the market.

Personally i like the ATI go for that X1650XT with the 256bit bus that will do your rig wonders in the gaming world and only for 100$

Good luck on getting any ATI directx 10 card ! ATI won't answer any emails and when I call will not answer any questions about release of them ! They put out alot of hype and 1 test card that did'nt materialize on the market at a comparable price . AMD blew our chances of competition for video ! The idiots are going bankrupt and bought the only company to compete with nvidia. I'm sick of looking at their pics and phoney promises ... I could release the same phoney pics with a graphics program ! Pretty pics AMD ... but you know the old saying ... " WHERE'S THE BEEF " ? They won't even put a projected release date on their lousey web site !!! NOTHING !!!! .... :cry:

Bad advice, dude.

Many 'The way it's meant to be played' titles - Oblivion for instance - work better on Ati cards, even though Nvidia pays for the marketing.

You're right about looking on a per-game-basis, but look to benchmarks... not marketing hype.

Old game on old card ..... get the Crysis game when it comes out and run it DUDE . All in well if you only plan on running " last year's games ... but if you want the newest ones like most ... the old ATI's will be lame !

Stop spamming the thread...

To the OP: If I were you, I'd ask your parents or neighbors around if there are any jobs you can work to make a couple of quick bucks so that you can buy this X1650XT:

The 256-bit bus would be worth it.

you do have a purty mouth, you need to take it to the other and open it down there :lol:

Wow, you sure are knowledgable.

I didn't know you had a beta of Crysis to test. :roll:

When Crysis comes out in half a year or so, it's a safe bet that both Ati's and Nvidia's new cards will run it better than both Ati's & Nvidia's Dx9 counterparts...

...so what's your point, dude? :lol: 
April 24, 2007 9:17:46 PM

which one do you prefer 7600gs or X1650XT or X1650XT PRO and is 7300gt more nicer than 7600GS
