  1. sorry for my english language :fou:
  2. basically, it goes (in price order) 8800 ultra (most expensive, most powerful), 8800 gtx, 8800 gt, 8600 gt
    (i've missed out a lot, but those are general price points)
    the best deal by all accounts nowadays is the 8800gt
  3. thanks , i dont know the ati price sorry , so is the difference too huge between 8600 GS and 8600 GTS ?

    what pixel shader have it to be ? , would it run 3dmark 2006 with normal settinges , fastly <more than 20 FPS> , thaks again .
  4. Spud was saying that the 8800 is the best bang for you buck.. And since I played the The Longest Journey many moons ago :) I know you won't have any frame rate problems, you can max out your settings with that for a new card... Just make sure your motherboard allows you to use one of these cards, I'm assuming by what you previously wrote, it shall.
  5. thanks , one last thing , is 8600 GS capable of running most games these days , like COD4 , and the PS2 emulator <legal , becuase i have the consol , but i want to see can my computer run the emu better with the new gfx card>

    thanks too much .
  6. sorry , i wrote by mistake GS instead of GT , <i wasn't able to edit the post>

    so , would 8600 GT , run all the games ?
    thanks
  7. it will, trust me, i own one.

    I have the console too, but I would love to have the emulator, so I can consolidate space, where do you get the emulator and what is it called?

    To 3DGURU, check how much the ATI HD 3850 costs over there, as it will be MUCH better than either the 8600GT or 8600GTS. If you can afford it, then get it, as it is the best in its price range.
