My friend bought a "powered by ATI" Radeon 8500, and was quite sad about its performance, it was clocked at 275/252, and maxed at 275/260.
The company who sold it has made him an offer. He can return the Radeon and get a Geforce3 TI200 128MB from a well know company instead, at almost half the price of the Radeon 8500.
Should he do this, or stick with the Radeon 8500???
If he gets the GF3, which driver is best?
Please reply today, he has to make up his mind fast!!!
I didn't know they made a 128MB GF3 Ti200. Is this info correct? Mine is just a 64 MB

Yes it is 128MB, but I don´t really know if it´s a better price/performance deal than the Radeon 8500. My friend can get it at half the price of the Radeon, so I guess the Radeon should be twice as fast, or have a lot of cool features, over the Geforce3...
I know you may not see a difference with the 128MB DDR in games right now, but maybe in the future.
I´ve also heard that the card can be overclocked to TI500 core/memory speed.
I would advise him to accept the deal, but what do you think???
