Video Card Suggestions - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I'd say either an X1950 Pro or an 8600 GT. No sense in buying the 7600 GT unless you're on an extreme budget. But yeah, you aren't getting a Pentium are you? Cause if you are, man this'll be a waste of a card.

x1950pro will blow the 8600 out of the water, but it isnt DX10.

Basically, are you willing to go with a better DX9 card and change to DX10 later, or get an inferior Card that will 'last' longer. I say 'last' as the 8600 will likely be obsolete, or at least a lot cheaper by the time you would want to upgrade from the 1950 anyway.

I say go with the 1950 and upgrade to DX10 later when the prices go down. Better performance all the way around then!

A great card, but the pro will perform a bit better still.

the 8600GT is faster than the 1950pro in most tests at higher res, and the 8600GTS creamates taht crappy ATI card, dont suggest he waste his money

I think it's better to get a cheaper motherboard and invest more in the video card.

What is your total budget, and what parts are planning to get??
yep but some cheap motherboards are crap..
