Tags: Graphics Cards Tiger Graphics Product Last response: May 26, 2009 3:35 PM in Graphics & Displays Share unknown_13 a b U Graphics card May 26, 2009 12:27:44 PM Ok, my frend wants to buy the xfx 8800gt alpha dog, from tigerdirect: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... There it says : THIS ITEM IS REFURBISHED Now, does anyone here has xfx 8800gt alpha dog (from tiger direct)? Should he get the "refurbished" xfx 8800gt from tiger direct or from other stores? (btw he decided to get it from there because it is cheap- $84.99) More about : refubished 8800gt coozie7 a c 117 U Graphics card May 26, 2009 12:45:18 PM Check the warranty! I have seen these 'refurbished' cards with only 30 days warranty, not enough, not by a long way. Spend a few dollars more and get a card with full warranty.

Probably a better warranty, and should be similar performance. Maybe a little better. witcherx May 26, 2009 1:37:12 PM Or you can go for 4770.. that wen oc.. beats the 9800 or gts 250.. in the same price range... cheers... Bluescreendeath a b U Graphics card May 26, 2009 1:45:22 PM You can always OC the GTS250 to beat the 4770. 4770 is better than the 4830 or 9800GT and worse than the GTS250/9800GTX or 4850 unknown_13 a b U Graphics card May 26, 2009 2:02:42 PM Thanks for the replys isn't the gts250 just an renamed 9800gtx+ ? cause i found on tigerdirect xfx 9800gtx+ for 109.99 dolars. I'll scout around the net for gts250/9800gtx+ vs hd4770 I'll post soon unknown_13 a b U Graphics card May 26, 2009 2:21:20 PM From what i'we seen, gts250 1gb ddr3 IS faster than hd4770. But the 4770 is cheaper, based on 40nm techology, has ddr5 memory. So i'll tell my friend to get the HD4770 Bluescreendeath a b U Graphics card May 26, 2009 3:35:39 PM unknown_13 said:From what i'we seen, gts250 1gb ddr3 IS faster than hd4770. But the 4770 is cheaper, based on 40nm techology, has ddr5 memory. So i'll tell my friend to get the HD4770 The GTS250 512mb, 9800GTX+/9800GTX, and 4850 are all faster than the 4770. You can't really compare the DDR5 in the 4770 with the DDR3 in the GTS250. Nvidia and ATI use completely different architecture. All high end Nvidia cards use DDR3, whereas all high end ATI cards use DDR5. ATI cards also have 3x more stream processors. Nonetheless, Nvidia cards still perform just as good if not better than ATI cards. Example: GTX260 DDR3 = 4870 DDR5 GTS250/9800GTX/GTX+ DDR3 = 4850 DDR5 GTX275 DDR3 = 4890 DDR5 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
