Which is better? 6800gt or geforce210?
May 27, 2011, 11:39 PM
I have both of these cards:
Which is better overall for gaming performance?
I know the 6800gt is slow but the 210 isn't even meant for gaming (despite the fact I've been able to squeeze some gaming out of it).
Relevant computer specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 Rana 450 (3.2ghz, OC'd to 3.62ghz)
MOBO: Asus AM3 M4A77TD
RAM: G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 PC10666
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce 210 512MB / ASUS Geforce 6800GT 256MB
HD: WD Caviar Blue Recertified 320GB 7200rpm SATA
PSU: Rosewill RV2-600 600 Watts

which better 6800gt geforce210

Neither one are very powerful. You would be better to buy a new card since your sytem could easily handle a decent card.
The 210 is better, on par with a 9400 gt or 9500 gt I think.

To me the gt210 is like a 8400gs and it is a very junky card for this purpose unless you are playing very old games. I suggest that you did a little deeper and get a more enjoyable card.
