7100 or 7300 video card

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I find a GPU for kid's machine. They currently play some low-end game. Is 7100 or 7300 still OK?
post #2 of 22
get you kid a 7600GT at least..the 7100/7300 is just not worth it

Depends on the games, i think a 7300 should be fine.

P.S. Its EVGA not EGVA ( In your rig )

You can't go wrong with a 7600GT. I can play CoD2 maxed out except only 2xAA. Same with CS:S and DoD:S.

The 7300GT would be sufficient for games like CS:S, UT2004, and COD I. The 7600GT would probably be best for your dollar though...

I wouldn't even consider anything under a 7300GT.

It really depends though he said that his kid is playing low-end games which probably doesnt require that much gpu power and im guessing his kid doesnt care about the graphical look of teh game either, so the 7300Gt would be good

I just checked all titles. They only require 6200 above. But I need to buy for at lease 1 year or so.

The 7100 is a 6200. It is just rebranded.

the 7300GT(256mb) is 78 bucks... the 7600 is 100 bucks. for 22 dollars, the performance increase is totally worth it

The 7100 is cr@p.
I ve got mine for 20€ just till I decide what gpu to get, and man, It runs Morrowind(yes the old one) @1024X768 with everything on low@10-15fps.
And thats @500/1100
When on stock, it can't handle even the windows 3D screensavers.
