It's all quality baby

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I see a lot of people asking "should I get a 7950 or something instead of a 8 series card?" I see a lot of people recommending that they do, as the price is cheaper and that DX10 is not even out. People are also saying that why get a 8 series card as a 7950 or x1950 is fast enough at the res I run.

The one thing I never see, is people talking about the quality difference in the image using the same res and the same in game settings for detail.

I had a 7800gtx sli system. this is still what i would consider a very good system and it ran everything great.

I now have a 8800gtx ..just one for now and it is a LOT faster but the thing that really stands out is the image quality! the explosions look soo much better the smoke is unreal you really have to seee them side buy side..they did a lot with the shader models and a lot of other thing that you can really tell the difference.

If your trying to make this decision I just wanted to point out that even in the same games at the same res using the same setting you will see a huge image quality difference between the 8800's and anything else out right now. oh and it will be faster also

good point. find some screenies. i have heard the 8 series is just a small step up from current X19XX series quality and a large step from 7XXX's though.
