New Graphics Card pls :D

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
okay so i have a Sapphire Radeon X1600 128-bit 512mb card..
and i was thinking about upgrading to a better card. I Have heard good things from the X800 pro and the 9800pro but im not sure of which one would out do my current card with ease. anyone got any information?

if you get either one of those cards you mentioned , you will be giving Smart Shader 3.0 , which means your games wont look the same. you should overclock your current card a bit and see how it goes, the only other card i can recomend that would be better than your current card and the ones you mentioned would be an x1800 series card. or , i know im in the ati section but .. a 7600GT agp

yes but no smart shader 3.0 , i hate to sound like an nvidia fan boy . but a 7600GT agp will outdo any ati agp card you can get.

i agree



the other cards you have mentioned arent really an upgrade as they are not future proof
