XFX 7950GT - Possible bottleneck? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
if your just looking for a decent card to get you by till the new DX10 cards come out later, the 7600gt will be just fine.

I can play css at 1280x960(?) with all settings on high, 2x aa 4xaf, and on the stress test i get around 100fps stock clocks. with my current overclock i get 121 fps.

don't downgrade the card you want to by because the card will be bottlenecked. if anything why even worry about the bottleneck? ok so sure the 7950 might be a little bottlenecked but it is still going to be faster then downgrading the card to something that wouldn't be bottlenecked and also by doing this you allow yourself room to upgrade in the futre if need be.

bottlenecking doesn't mean the system will run slower just means that the gpu isn't being unleashed to it's full potential. but even then it would still be quicker. it's kinda like buying a q6600 and overclocking it to 3.6ghz then getting worried about opening wordpad and typing because the program is so small and limited that it would bottleneck your cpu.

just get the best that you can afford.

Well if his system is the one in his sig thats a agp motherboard last i checked their are no 8600gt cards in agp. Only 7950 i could find in agp favor the x1950 pro in agp might be better for you if you have the powersupply to run it.

ya his choices for high end are 7950gt or 1950pro if he wants slightly lower but still highend a 7900gs would work good to.

always go for the better part if funds permit, like rx7speed was saying a bottlenecked 7950 is still better than a wide open slower card if money isnt a factor it would be silly to pick the slower card, and also i put a 7950gt pci-e in my brother pc when i built it and all it has is 500w power it does fine
