Which ATI Card is Better in Terms of Performance

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Which one of these is better? I want one that will have the highest FPS with everything enabled (AA, etc).
256MB Sapphire Radeon X1950XT, w/GDDR4 RAM
or
512Mb Sapphire Radeon X1800XT, w/GDDR3 RAM
Thanks!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Is there an X1950XT Master Crossfire card, because this is the slave.

Just did a quick scan of e-tailers and couldnt find one of the 256 variety. However, if you really wanted cf, you could just buy a 512 master and use it, as it would just disable half of its memory.

Ah, thanks man. How much do those retail though? Isn't it like £300?
