new gfx card.. - Page 2

post #11 of 26
I still say the X1900XT would be the better choice. The overclocks I got with mine here at OC.net were using the stock cooler, too.

What would you say about the difference in pixel pinelines? x1900xt = 16 and 7900GTO = 24. Also, which clock speed is more important, core or mem?

x1900xt has 16 pipes at 48 pixel shaders

What he said.

As far as clock speed goes, it's all relative. When you're overclocking them, one can hold back the other. I know I could have gotten higher memory OC out of mine, but at the cost of the core speeds. It's a balancing act... you just have to test for yourself and see what gives the highest performance gains.

Noone knows exactly when DX10 will be released, as noone knows when Vista will be released. They pretty much go hand in hand.

In the $180 +/- arena, I'd have to say the 7600GT's are pretty good for the money.

If you can stretch another $15-$20 out, THIS would be pretty badass.

I know he is looking for around $180, but how much $ is the heat venting of the 1900XT worth? Does this generate a lot of heat, and if so is it worth another $50 for the extra specs and fan exhaust?

I would go with the X1900XT. I just bought that Sapphire model off of newegg. With the specs in my sig, I'm able to go over 5,000 marks in 3dmarks06. I get close to 11,000 in 3dmarks05. If it wasn't for my cpu, this card would hit 6,500+ (3dmark06) without any problems. The Sapphire model seems to overclock well, I can do 700+/1640+.

For Call of Duty 2 512 video ram helps out performance a ton. Also the game internally configures some settings having to do with texture detail that it will not enable unless you have at least 512 video ram. So for the best COD2 experience 512 is a must.
