Its been awhile since I have delved into the arcane knowledge of video cards, to try and determine my best bet, so I would appreciate any advice ...
Lately, prices at Future Shop (Canada) have dropped drastically on graphics cards in the price range I want to pay.
These are my choices:
Radeon X1950 Pro 256mB PCI-E $150
Radeon HD 2600XT 512mB $200
EVGA 8600 GTS Superclocked 256 mB $200
Now, before you ask, yes I have checked out Tom's heirarchy chart and other articles... but what confuses me is 1) the RAdeon HDxxx's are not on the list, and 2) I know the x1950 pro comes with GDDR4 memory, but the HD 2600xt doesn't say ( I assume DDR2 or some such)
Does double the memory of questionable speed, make enough difference to choose the HD over the x1950??
