8800 gts 640mb or 2900xt? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: July 29, 2007 10:53 PM in Graphics & Displays Share confusiont July 29, 2007 12:10:57 AM I know were alot of these made already but I would like to know which is better concerning temps and the amount of "power" you get out of each card. disregard price, sli,crossfire, etc. Im going with a single card setup anyway. So... simply two cards compared in hardware which is better say like in 1900x1600 and a high graphics game? and how about even higher resolutions? and which has better drivers?

(Lost Planet, Supreme Commander, Neverwinter nights2) The XT takes a bigger performance hit with AA enabled, although this has improved with driver revisions. From what I've read, ATI has better drivers in Vista but I have no experience with that OS. | Report abuse confusiont July 29, 2007 5:35:46 PM So does the xt support AA now? | Report abuse Heyyou27 July 29, 2007 8:07:06 PM confusiont said:So does the xt support AA now? It never didn't support AA, it just performs worse with it enabled in comparison to it's 8800 series counterpart. | Report abuse Related ressources 8800GTS 640MB vs 2900XT 512MB - Forum 8800gts 640mb vs 2900xt ? - Forum what card should i get? hd 2900xt 512mb or 8800gts 640mb superclocked - Forum 2900XT or 8800GTS Superclocked 640MB (same price) - Forum 2900xt vs 8800gts 640mb ocied version... help Plz? - Forum Ask the community Publish fletch420 July 29, 2007 8:36:15 PM th eone in my sig owns- best card I've ever had I think.

I LOVE my 7800gxt but if i was to upgrade it would be to the 2900xt Overall better built for the monster games about to be released. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>8800 gts 640mb or 2900xt?> Related ressources: ForumGTS 320Mb Vs GTS 640Mb Vs 2900XT ForumIs it worth downgrading from 2900XT 512 to 8800 GTS 320 ForumThe Debate - 8800GTS vs 2900XT Forum2900XT Crossfire vs 8800GTS SLI Forumhelp buying new graphics, 2900xt or 8800gts or 8800 gtx Forum2900XT vs 8800GTS compared in terms of cars ForumRadeon 2900XT VS XFX 8800GTS Forum8800GTS 640 vs HD 2900XT Forum8800 GTS 640mb or HD2900XT?
