7900GT0
1900GT
1800XT
7800GT 2
x800GTO 2
7600GT 2
6600GT 2
5950Ultra
ATI 9200
MX400

I run every one of these currently in my machines. I am debating on the 2900Pro and the 8800GTS. I'll probably wait for the next round and look for price drops coming up this fall. I paid almost $400 for the 5950 Ultra new. Terrible buy! Never again will I drop four Franklins on a video card.

I forgot my to add my Matrox 4MB DDR installed in my 100 mhz. P3. I paid about a hundred for that! Then I have that Voodoo too on my 450 mhz. P3. Maybe that's a canshe banshee.
September 30, 2007 5:26:58 PM

if its the choice between 8800 gts and 2900 pro I'd go gts because u have the option for sli (which is more stable and less hassel than crossfire) and also its about the same price or cheaper.
Plus the 8800 gts 320 beats the 2900 XT at most benchmarks for 19" native resolutions:) 

September 30, 2007 5:47:02 PM

The 2900 Pro is energy hungry compared to the 8800 gts and 100$ more exp. It out performs it at higher resolutions, but nvidia handles stress alot more and has higher benchmarks. Plus crossfire still is a little buggy. PLus the evga 8800 gts there is no competition it's the highest oc of the 8800 gts series. Ati lost the video card wars so far. They use to be better they have no competition in the high end gaming series.

With the proper drivers the 2900(XT) compares well with 8800(GTX). The 2900PRO beats the 8800GTS 320 hands down. I'm looking forward to see what the 2950 will do. Then you have the 9800's coming soon. I'll wait for now, but the 2900's are tempting. $269 is in my price range for a top notch card. Still over $300 for the 8800GTS 640.

Btw the 2900 has bettwe drivers but if you see the PC bible, by pc gamer they clearly state that the 2900 is flawed for Ati's top line. I was an ATI fan but I'm out:p  The 2900 Pro costs 349.99$ CAD while the 8800 gts costs 279.99 CAD and 319.99 CAD for the 640 RAM. Whether you compare them single or dual. If they win in single (doubt it) they loose in dual :p  sorry to say it !

I've got the 8800GTS 640MB in my rig, and my old one (now passed on to my brother) has an old ATI 9200 AGP card.

Question. What psu do you have and do you use both the 6pin and 8pin 12v lead to supply power to the card. Or two 6pin leads. How do you like it and compared to what you have used.

BFG 8800 GTX OC2

By the way, here's something interesting I discovered: I replaced my official nVidia drivers (from July) with beta versions (from September), and now my screen started tearing in Titan Quest (at 1680x1050, all settings maxed in the game and in nVidia Control Panel). I enabled v-sync and that fixed it. The only explanation I could come up with is that before I was getting less than 60fps and after I was getting more than 60fps, and the monitor can only display 60fps. Am I guessing right here, did recent drivers make the 8800 cards faster???

I've also got an eVGA GeForce MX 4000 in my old computer. Pretty good card for $40 :lol: 
October 1, 2007 2:33:15 PM

I'm still using my NV 7900GT which I bought about a year ago. I came very close to getting an 8800GTS 320 until I played Bioshock flawlessly at max settings 1280x1024. Since then I have no problem whatsoever waiting a bit longer for one of the new offerings since this old card can still run all my games maxed at my monitors' native resolution.

October 1, 2007 2:53:31 PM

Sapphire Radeon HD 2600XT. For $100, this card was an excellent buy. I run the Team Fortress 2 beta at full settings (minus AA and AF anyway) at 1680x1050 without any problems. The game runs between 40-60fps in heated battle.
October 1, 2007 3:07:11 PM

my very first rig had a matrox 2mb card in SLI (via external cable) with a 3dfx voodoo2 12mb card. that on a PIIpro with 96mb or ram totaly kicked ass.
now i have a 7950.

what vsync does is make the frame draw at the same time the monitor refreshes. if your average is faster, it would limit the fps from whatever it would be without vsync to 60fps. smooth video doesn't need to be faster than 30fps ( i think disney used to make thier movies at 24fps).

Using x1650SE, getting 8800gts or 2900pro (if available and see more bench) in a week or so.

The riva 128/128zx (8MB BEAT THAT GTX!) was my favorite.

What's wrong with that? Lots of online polls don't let you see the results until you vote, or don't let you vote after you've seen the results. The idea is that you vote without being influenced by others' votes.

Well, I can tell you this: when I was playing Overlord on an X1900XT (capped at 30 fps) without vsync enabled, my screen was tearing like crazy even though the fps would top out at 30 and my screen's refresh rate was 60Hz, after enabling vsync, however, the problem went away. So screen tearing does not necessarily mean (at least according to that) that you are getting fps that are higher than your monitor's refresh rate.
The same thing also happens pretty much with any other game, regardless of how much fps I'm getting, except for TF2 beta, for some reason there wasn't much screen tearing there.

Oh, and I also can't view the poll results even after I've voted.

Hmmm, so maybe the fps didn't go up after all, and they just introduced some new bug in the drivers. Anyway, don't let me hijack the thread, I should have started my own.

Edit: poll results: it works for me, in FireFox 2. What browser are you using? The people who maintain the site will need to know that so they can fix it.

I still have a handful of matrox video cards and even VLB (not agp/pci(e)) cards.

8800gts 640mb for the win.

Wouldn't it be awesome to take your computer 10 years back in time just as Windows 98 came out and you are running XP 64bit playing games like Supreme commander while others are playing the first red alert?

Woot.

I have a 7900GS. The most taxing game I play is Guild Wars, and I think it stays pegged at my monitor refresh rate.
My wife has a 7600GT, a hand-me-down I gave her when she started playing GW too. I think it sometimes drops into the upper 40s. We both play at 1440x900.
October 1, 2007 8:31:30 PM

GeForce 7950GTX (yes GTX, it's a laptop card)
GeForce 6800 (vanilla)
Radeon X300 (biggest POS ever. I'm sure integrated could kick its A$$)
MX400 (not being used, sitting in my desk drawer)

Theres a mall where I live, its called Pacific mall, they sell extremely cheap video cards. Whether they're stolen or not I dunno, don't really care but it was 349.99 if you pay visa or w.e and 320 if you paid cash!

AMAZING:D 

October 1, 2007 8:42:23 PM

I have three computers presently running:
a 8800 GTS 640
a XT 1900 XTX water cooled
a 7800 GTS 256 mb

When I get around to building a fourth computer, unless a new card comes out before then, I'll be using a HD 2900 1 gig card. All the cards that I have are basically good, but the 8800 GTS doesn't get along with my AMD FX60 all that well. Nvidia explains in their release notes that K7 and K8 CPUs have coding that doesn't work well with the 8800 series cards, but the 7800 GTX has no problems. Sounds strange to me, but whatever.
October 1, 2007 8:52:31 PM

just a little old x800xl, on AGP here. does what I need it to for now. when I finally get the $$ to build new (probably about 10 years at the present rate), I will need to get something newer.. :D 
October 1, 2007 9:08:27 PM

i currently use a x1900xt 512 overclocked at 700 core 1700mhz mem so it beats a x1950xtx.

i currently look for an upgrade but i just can't decide: when my card is having a rough time (rainbow six vegas at high,hdr and AA or call of juarez high, hdr and AA) it seems to me that the 8800gts or 2900xt isn't doing a whole lot better........ according to benchmarks online.

when these cards are getting 100fps, mine does 60-70 so i don't care. but when mine gets only 18 fps, those cards get 24-25 fps wich still isn't fast enough!

only a gtx does a fine job compared to mine but that's out of my league and not worth the money either.

maybe an overclock will make a difference? wich is better: 8800gts overclocked or 2900pro/xt overclocked?

not to impressed by the upcoming cards either: rv670 barely beats r600 and g92 is just 8800gt. new high-end will both be dual gpu cards wich will (again) use a lot of powerrrr (and produce a lot of heat).
October 1, 2007 9:34:10 PM

agreed with that but u can't really compare the 1900 with the 8800 or the 2900 because they're in the DX 10 category so the 1900 is already at a disadvantage because of the 9.0c compatibility only:p 

My other card was a 1900 AIW but I sold it because the tuner wasn't all that great.

October 1, 2007 10:21:57 PM

i started with a fx5600 geforce then i got me a 6600gt geforce and was not satisfied so i both the evga 68oo gs and unlocked it(only shaders...pipeline were defect)and now im at the gainward 7800gs glh(20-7) @570-1500 ..and im still agp...i'm pretty a geforce fan....mabey in the future i buy me a 8800 but withs one i don't no yet...probably the ultra when the price is rigth(here in holland)
October 1, 2007 11:00:08 PM

Old P4 running a Gainward 5900 Ultra Golden Sample 256mb and the new Core 2 Duo is running EVGA 8800 GTS KO 320mb. Been very happy with both cards.

Agree.
I have a 1950XT and expect this to last through the end of 2008. By then DX11 will be out! A good time to upgrade to a G100/R800!
I could have gotten a 8800 GTX at the time, but it was expensive back then and no DX10 software to run.

I've got this click here

That time at CompUSA there was this huge sale on it got it for half the price.

It's got 2 pcie 6 pin and 2 pcie 8 pins.
And it's semi-molex


The more powerful one is the 1KW version but during that time it was not available.

As compare to my old card, this is really really fassssttt!!!!
