The Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition Tags: Graphics Cards Platinum Radeon Graphics Product Last response: June 26, 2007 11:13 PM in Graphics & Displays Share humbleservant888 June 26, 2007 8:58:58 PM Hi all: I am looking for a graphics card, anybody have any comments on this one? The Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition 256 Mb and Gddr3. For gaming such as Titan Quest and WOW. Good enough? HS More about : radeon x850 platinum edition Xazax310 June 26, 2007 9:02:18 PM first how much is it and where do you live? such a card is now 3 Generations old and pretty worthless unless you can get it for like 50-80$. lostandwandering June 26, 2007 9:02:57 PM How much are you paying for it? If it's over 100, it's too much. That card is now 2 or 3 (depending on how you count) generations behind and shouldn't cost you a lot.

Please list system specs including psu and then we can help you. Mactronix SEALBoy June 26, 2007 9:49:29 PM Assuming you have a PCI-E slot, the X1950XT that IcY18 linked is pretty much a no-brainer for under $200. Just make sure you have the PSU to handle it. jonisginger June 26, 2007 9:59:57 PM It is generations behind but its still pretty powerful, main defecit is that it DOESNT do Shader Model 3 (pretty lightning effects) Get the x1950 or better still the 8800GTS Hope that helps humbleservant888 June 26, 2007 10:47:38 PM So which graphics card can support shader model 3? How about GForce 7600GS? Since I am not really a gamer but I like to play the TQ. My system is: AMD 64 3500 2.2 ghz 1 gig ram asus gforce 7300 graphics card I got lag when I use the asus graphics card. So I want to upgrade the graphics card but I dont want to spend too much money on that. HS Xazax310 June 26, 2007 10:49:48 PM You still need to tell us how much you wanna spend.... Getting a 7600GS from a 7300GT will see ZERO improvement go for the X1950XT thats on newegg.com now for 150$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... you will see big improvement in frame rates and quality. humbleservant888 June 26, 2007 10:52:28 PM I want to spend within $200. I see the GForce 8500 at newegg not more than $100, is that one good? Xazax310 June 26, 2007 10:56:09 PM No, if you want it for its media capabilites maybe, but for games definitely not. Believe me that X1950XT will just about kill anything with in that price range. humbleservant888 June 26, 2007 11:00:21 PM ok then I pick that one thx Xazax310 June 26, 2007 11:01:28 PM No problem :wink: -Xazax lostandwandering June 26, 2007 11:13:31 PM Quote:No, if you want it for its media capabilites maybe, but for games definitely not.
