Oh yeah, forgot. He's too busy changing the world and doesn't have time to reply to our posts.

Get a 9800GTOx2 PCI and you still won't be getting anywhere lol.

Subscribed! I can feel one funny thread coming.

Oh well, you have to learn the hard way sometimes.

I read it as Gimahertz I think you should just buy that and do some of your comparisons and see what a difference it makes. You'll wonder why you kept buying PCI cards when you get your new PC lol and you'll learn to listen to people who have more knowledge than you.

Lol, pink anyway? hehe

PCI is obviously still alive, and all because you folks might not be into it, there are still lots of people who are. Visiontek and BFG Told me the PCI market is still strong and they might look into making new ones, so you know if you nothing nice to say , just don't bother posting.


All i know, after looking at this new info about more pci cards coming out, buying a new PC is on hold for a while, its PCI for a long time for me.

Peace Thanks Albatron for caring

Oh and btw, 1GB of memory from what i understand is this:

" So if your DDR memory clock is 500MHz, the effective clock speed is 1000MHz "

Its GDDR3 tho, either way this is awesome for PCI gaming!
I don't even know why I'm even going to try. Here it goes:

PCI is a great interface for non-high bandwidth devices. such as networking cards, sound cards, tv tuners, etc. Video cards on the other hand need alot of bandwidth to communicate w/ the CPU optimally. Frankly the 8500GT as far as a pci-e card is really weak. As a PCI offering it's probably a better card than most, but probably maxing out it's(PCI's) bandwidth...

The PCI GPU market is still strong because alot of people w/ older computers want to play bejweled or w/e and need some sort of 3d acc. card. OEMs for a long time(and still somewhat often today) only offer PCI expansion slots on their motherboards. thus limiting those users to a PCI-based GPU. There's no doubt many many people out there just not willing to fork out the cash on a new system just to play an extremely simple game, whilst to them, everything else works dandy.


You've spent more money on PCI GPUs combined that what it would have cost to replace your entire rig w/ a computer that would FAR out perform it, and have an upgrade path for the future. It boggles my mind as to why one would stay w/ old technology, that they have to continually invest decent sums of money into, for only miniscule increases in performance. On the other hand I could understand the situation if it were a car and parts merely needed to be replaced, and in doing so bought a minor upgrade.

1Gb of GDDR3 on a 256-bit interface cannot be utilized properly on an enthusiast level GPU, yet alone a budget/entry-level GPU. The 1GB of RAM here is merely for marketing. 256MB or 512MB would be the max, and even then the core probably couldn't process the data fast enough to make any efficient use of it.

Yes, 500MHz DDR is 1GHz. 500MHz GDDR3 is also 1GHz.
As far as PCI gaming goes, it's probably already maxing out the bandwidth of the entire PCI bus so this would probably be the top-end for PCI.


and on a final note!

I'm not trying to flame you(or the PCI bus), just trying to give ya the truth, as many others before have tried.

Lengendary...this isn't for gaming. 8500GTs aren't for gaming and PCI definitly isn't for gaming. People in general don't game with PCI cards. This card is for back-up and HTPCs. Just close this thread or people are gonna flame you like no tomorrow. The 1 GHz memory clock is no good if the card doesn't have enough bandwidth in the first place.

Hence the low-profile bracket.

total crap !!!!!!!!!!! (gaming or not)

im sure they churn these rubbish cards out to get rid of old components they got lying round.....lol

look at the size of it & it only has 256mb of ram...

rather fill the PCI slot with a spoon TBH....

he has like a 40 page flame thread already so that means nothing to him. he just need to go out side once in awile smell some fresh air and relize that PCI has been dead in the GPU area for YEARS!!!!!!
