Ati Radeon 9700 pro 128mb or Geforce 7300se?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Looking to buy a new comp there both the same price, One is an AMD athlon 3200 with the Ati Radeon 9700 pro and one is a pentium 3.06ghz with a Geforce 7300se both 1 gig ram, The pentium has a slightly bigger hardrive - My question is which would be the best for gaming considering the cards and the processer?

Cheers.

Welcome to the Forums!
Both of those cards really suck for gaming, unless you wanna play the original half-life

Have you ever thought about building your own computer? It is a lot cheaper, and lots of people here could help you out

the 9700pro will play most games at 10x7 at medium settings, its just a lil faster than the vanillia 6600 which the 7300GS is just a lil slower than the 6600 vanillia

Both cards are compatible with LOTR online and all the specs are over the reccomended to play it but I don't wanna be playing with lots of freezing and lag it just ruins the fun. I really appreciate the fast answers!

I don't know what that comes out to in USD, but a cheapo amd (the 3200) will beat a cheapo pentium. The amd rig will be fine for WoW because i know my friend plays it fine on a 9550 and celeron d 2.9
