graphic card switch

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I Own an ATi x1650pro,
Now I'm thinking of upgrading to a x1950pro.

Reason is, when i play R6 Vegas it barely keeps it stable at 30FPS,
could somone check my system specs and indicate if the graphic card is the thorn in the thigh? Or is is my RAM/CPU.
just afraid that if I can barely play high-end games released now, how will it be in the futere.
price range for my new card is <200ish
thanks

Its not really your CPU or ram too much. Having 2gb of RAM would help though. However R6 is a demanding game on any current GPU. A x1650 will have a hard time with this game. Upgrading will help you .

yea a 1950pro is not the best route imo, id go with a newer nvidia 8 series card

R6 can also challenge the G80 series aswel !. A newer ATI or Nvidia DX10 card would serve you well however it lower end cards will do you fine.

It also depends if you have that much to spend. I personally love my X1950 Pro and wouldn't even consider an 8 Series nVidia. I know the whole not DX10 ready less stream processores, blah...blah..blah. But, It was a great price, a great card, and it really doesn't fall THAT far behind the 8800GTS. Not saying that if you have an extra 70 bucks that you shouldn't dive for the 8800, but also consider that you have to, most likely if your running a X1650 right now, upgrade to a beefier power supply and that's going to cost ya as well. Choose wisely, you don't want to regret a purchase this big anytime soon, but IMO, the X1950Pro is a great card, plus it has stunning visuals that put any comperable nVidia card to shame.
