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?

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$.

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.

Hi its impossable to recomend any card to you without knowing what kind of system its going in.
Please list system specs including psu and then we can help you.

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.

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

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.

I want to spend within $200. I see the GForce 8500 at newegg not more than $100, is that one good?

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.
