The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GTS 512 MB
By

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

In 1280*1024, filters enabled or not, the GTX manages to keep a slight advantage over the new 8800 GTS. It remains true in 1600*1200 but only when the filters are active. Without them, the 8800 GTS takes the lead. In 1920*1440, the score obtained, without antialiasing, is the same between the two cards, whereas we get a surprise as the 8800 GTS takes the lead when filters are activated. Its superiority over the 8800 GT doesn't exceed approximately 10% in this case.

    Hi, this is a tricky question, I think. I'm curious. How come a 5 year old video card is only 9 tiers down below the more recent and super powerful 7970 GHz Ed.? (From your most recent Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart) And also it is 8 tiers above the pretty cool Intel HD Graphics 4000?

    Does that mean its specs and 512 MB are enough to work with media and play nicely most nowadays games? (at medium-high settings?) I know that does not only depend on the video card, but that chart suggest that.

    This can be silly, but I'm looking for a video card like this one. I have a Core 2 Duo E8400 3Ghz/4Gb/IntelQ45 machine that I'd like to improve by adding this video card. Any piece of advice? I'd appreciate it very much. (I know I can try upgrading to some Core 2 Quad, but I'm not to much into games nor editing).

    Mostly, what I'd like, besides casual medium-high settings gamming, is what I see in my monitor (videos, images, Windows 7 user interface) is crisp and clear, -much- more than usual. I like high-definition views :) 

    Please, advice me on that matter. Thank you for your review. That video card looks like it's amazing. And is not that expensive.

    Pd: My pc is an original HP Compaq dc7900 Convertible Minitower PC. And my monitor is a Full HD TV (LG LD650) I have another 3D one, and use this one for my comp. And, I'd like the video card to have an HDMI port to conect through it this monitor I use. DVI does the same? Btw.

    I think I should have said "my monitor will be a Full HD TV (LG LD650)." I couldn't get it to work with my pc cause I need a cable. Which I thought I had. I'll write more details soon. Going to reply the other post. Thanks. ^^
