9600XT worth the extra 128 megs?

I'm planning to get the Radeon 9600XT. I'm wondering if the extra 128 megs is useful, such as playing HL2, farcry, or doom 3.

  1. not really, no.

    a 9800-based card with 128Mb would be better for virtually everything.

    Hell, my 6800GT 'only' has 128Mb, and it don't bother me any. :smile:

  2. most of the time extra MB is gonna be a marketing scam whether its for example X600 128 MB or X600 256MB ...like 1 Frame of a difference not much....check out the TH VGA charts for urself...:D
  3. No, NO and No again.
  4. For heavens sake, I played battlefield 2 on my friends 9600XT machine last week, and it wasnt looking too good.

    It made me realize that times they are a changing.

  5. Heck I'm still using TI4200. But BF2 Demo will not start on that card.
  6. How's the R9800 doing with it?

    I hear there are some fixes scheduled for Cat 5.8.

    I guess it's just about the right time to be upgrading? :wink:

  7. With my Radeon 9800 Pro BF2 played with mostly High details very nicely :) Although, the 9800 is way outdated compared to the X800...

    It just depends on how much money you are willing to spend. But DON'T get a Radeon 9600. It's an OK card, but save up your money a little.
