Whats wrong with sapphire x1950XT 256MB?? The prices are so low even lower than the ATI X1950PRO 256MB or 512MB.

They're too damn good. This one runs Quake 4 on ultra, full AA, full AF, at 60FPS (max for this 2ms monitor, and max the eye can see, more FPS is a waste) without even trying. It also does that for Prey, Oblivion, Far Cry, hell, everything I throw at it, max all across the board. I know Quake 4 wants a 500mb-or-more card for ultra, but it can page that to your RAM, and if you have good fast RAM, you won't see any problem.

Oh also, and that is STOCK. This card can EASILY reach XTX speeds. I would overclock the hell out of it, but I haven't seen a reason to yet. It hasn't even been pushed by anything other than benchmarking yet.

Is 2GB of DDR PC-3200 Ram good?

It's possible. Tight timings, and a low CAS latency will count for a lot here, that's what I mean by fast, not mhz.

You have this card, and you have the RAM you'd need (2gb, possibly it's fast enough), so get Quake 4 and throw it into Ultra. Try doing it without any AA or AF on first.

Got an old CRT monitor? Bet you do. Hook it up, put it on the side of your desk, make an extended, two-monitor desktop. Have the "performance" tab of task manager constantly on that monitor, as well as ATItool, and whatever other windows you want to show your system's status. I'll give you a screenshot of mine -- I have two monitors, and it's godly. It lets you know how hard you're really pushing your card.

My second screen, the most useful thing EVER. All you need is a video card that isn't 4 years old and some old *****ty CRT monitor.

P.S.

Ignore that "Pentium M" thing, ITAT is a 'tard.

I thought it was a solid fact that the eye can't see more than 60FPS?

Sorry if I'm wrong, I don't have proof.

I DO KNOW that a 2ms monitor maxes out at 60FPS. At least I think it does. So what kind of monitor can display the 952346829FPS rates people get in CSS?

I got LCD Widescreen 20", and is there alot of difference between 2gb of DDR 3200 and 2GB DDR2 800MHZ?
