Im buying a motherboard that has a integrated ATI X700 video chip, but i have a PCI 6200OC Nvidia card, should i install the card in it or use the chip already on it? (The X700 has VGA and HDMI port; 6200 has DVI, VGA and S-Vid)
i didnt mean to be rude but i really dont appreciate it when ppl call my stuff crap (even though it may be crap) The point is im buying a new mobo, cpu, and ram and then was gona put surround sound in, then i was gona look into a new gfx card. and was wondering wihc wouild be better temporarily (im pretty sure the 6200 but i know nothing about ATi cards so thats why i asked)
The X700 should, (keyword: should) be able to outperform the 6200, on paper that is. Though since we're talking here about an integrated one, the performance should suffer, quite a lot. I'd agree with the other guy, try benching out the two and keep the one with the higher score. Though if you have less than 1GB of RAM it would make you think twice about the X700, since it's 64/128/256mb (whichever you set) that you could have used for your applications.
