Go do some research yourself seriously. I mean, this question has been answered SO MANY TIMES in this forum already, I am going to consider this a joke rather than a serious question.

I believe your mixing you and the 2900XT, mine never exceeds the temperature of 62 degrees celcuis. I'm happy with that.

what did you have to put it on water to get that, then agian thats most likly your idel temp, try an 8800, its a better card, with better temps, and oh wait it doesnt draw 200W by its self, oh yea didnt ya know that it actully use close to the full supply of its PCIe adaptors, while the 8800GTX only uses around 170W and the 8800GTS is much more friendly at a measly 130 or so watts.

Mods please just lock this thread as the responses are turning out to be entirely predictable in their inflammatory nature...
June 20, 2007 7:42:23 AM

Agreed. Lock this thread, the OP can find his answer in several other threads had he decided to do some basic research.
June 20, 2007 7:47:30 AM

no reason to lock it, he asked who was better, we are telling him
June 20, 2007 7:50:27 AM

He should have done some research, he obviously didnt. This has been asked so many times, its almost a figure of speech.

I don't know about the US, but here in Aus the 2900XT is cheaper than the GTS640.

According to the reviews, it performs slightly better in most games, even exceeding the GTX in a game or two. Therefore I cannot agree with your post.

Video Card Value

This evaluation is the embodiment of what video card value is to the gamer. We have a video card, the 320 MB GeForce 8800 GTS at around $289 providing a noticeable gameplay experience advantage compared to the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT that costs $409. In some cases the performance gap is very wide (S.T.A.K.E.R. and BF 2142), in other games performance is closer (Oblivion, Lost Planet), but in most cases the 320 MB GeForce 8800 GTS is providing higher framerates than the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT sometimes equating to a better gaming experience.

The 8800 GTS 320MB video card is $120 less expensive and provides a gaming experience that is equal to or superior to the HD 2900 XT. Not only that, but as our original evaluation proved the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT uses much more power than a GeForce 8800 GTS! The 8800 GTS is simply more efficient both in terms of power and performance.

The Bottom Line

We hoped newer driver revisions would improve performance on the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT. With the newer driver we used for this evaluation we did not see any “magic” happen when it comes to real world gaming experiences at resolutions at and above 1600x1200. The ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT is not even a match for even the much less expensive and much less power hungry 320 MB GeForce 8800 GTS.

S3 Super Savage integrated gfx are the best. Everything up to dx 8. C&C red alert looks awsome in 640x480
June 20, 2007 10:00:09 AM

Which ever is the cheapest, they are both nice cards.
June 20, 2007 10:19:06 AM

sorry for posting this thread without researching (im poor at researching lol). clearly for what has been said, the 8800GTS320 is slightly better than HD2900XT not to mention the GTS640 which i assume would be even better. i specifically asked for these two graphics cards (8800GTS640 and HD2900XT because they have more or less the same price at around 250 pounds). another reason why i picked these two was because thats the price range i would accept and not any higher eg. GTX prices are crazy.

again i repeat, im sorry for posting this thread but thank you for letting me realise which would be the right card

well its the 8800GTS640 i guessssssss thank you.

you guys making fun of me, big deal i didnt research it, you only have to say one answer and how difficult could that be or even better, how much time would a simple answer waste. if you dont know the answer, well leave the thread and if you do drop your answer. sorry i wrote this in an angry tone. id blame it on my family because they pissed me off haha.
June 20, 2007 10:35:18 AM

June 20, 2007 10:38:22 AM

Ok, go for nvidia one i think that the ati card smells (sadly)
June 20, 2007 11:24:52 AM

I vote for the S3 ViRGE 4MB model personally. Couple that with a Pentium 166, and you're king of the hill.
