I want to buy a new vid card and i was thinking to get a 8600 gts or a x1950 pro.
I know that the x1950 is beating the 8600 gts in higher rezolution with fsa turned on...
I have a 17" crt monitor and I play in 1024x768. In some games the gts beated in newer games the x1950 pro in low rezolution without fsa, and it and it needs less power then the x1950.
So is the 8600 gts better for me then the less expensive x1950 pro???
Whats te rest of your system like.
What psu do you have(how many watts)also amps on +12volt rail this will be written on the side of the psu or you can google it if you know the make and model.
I wouldnt even consider the 8600 for gaming.
Not really, never heard of them and sounds like a cheap brand. Try to stick with Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Enermax, Silverstone, Thermaltake, and OCZ. Preferably the models that have over a $90 price tag on them should be good enough to meet most gamer's needs.
