8600 GTS or 7900 GS? - Page 2

post #11 of 58
Get the 8600GTS it has DX10 and performs well!! But if you want a DX9 card then get the 7900GS thats only if you want to play DX9 Games.But better is the 8600GTS can play both so its good.

Well, can you play DX10 on a non-Vista OS? I ask because I was under the impression that you can't, and he did say he doesn't plan to go Vista/DX10.
I consider the appropriate choices to be the 7900gs, 7950gt, or the 8600gts. Price will be the determining factor, since all are about the same performance wise (with OC). DX10 is largely unproven on 8600 cards, and even if he gets it to "futureproof" chances are he would be getting another card by the time DX10 becomes more prevalent (unless he plans to keep the current card for a looooong time).

yup im thinkin im getting the 7900gs since i can get it the cheapest, plus from what ive read it the 7900 and up series all perform awesome on direct 9 and all my games are for that anyways. and yea im not bothering with vista for a while. and by the time i get vista or they make dx10 for 2003 server. most prob the 8600gts is gonna suck compared to the rest out by that time. and i would get the 7950 but 2 expensive.

edit: and yea i got a 19" Widescreen, plus getting cables and etc so when i want i can switch the display to my tv and the sound to my surround sound. and the price i find the 7900gs is 130+, and the 7950gt are 185+. so x2 for sli. prices 260+, or 370+. not worth 110 more dollars to get 512mb instead of 256mb

Ya my 7900gs did 630-660 on core befor i did the volt mod and on memory if i was around 815 or so. After volt mod i can do 730 for games and 920 for memory for benchmarks i go up to 780 and 920 for memory. Id go for the 7900gs from looking at hwbot most 7900gs cards outperfom the 8600 cards for clock to clock cause of the 8600s 128bit memory bus. If you look the gs gets higher scores with less clocks.

ummmm..... where did u get a 6800 and a 7600 from? lol having a hard time readin numbers i see.... =P lol jp i said 8600gts and 7900gs

edit: plus anywyas it does makes sence that the 6800gs is better than the 7600gt because look at the difference.

6800gs - Texture Fill Rate (per second) 5.1 billion Maximum Memory Bandwidth 32.0 GB/s
7600gt - Texture Fill Rate (per second) 6.7 billion Maximum Memory Bandwidth 22.4 GB/s

the 6800gs has almost 10gb more memory

I doubt the 8600GTS is going to be able to run Dx10 games very well anyway, go for the 7900GS for now, because you still have about 6 - 7 months before we start seeing alot of dx10 games. (Correct me if im wrong)
