Which card for ET?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am debating over which card to buy from my local store that will perform best in both games.
I will be playing Wolfenstein enemy territory and probably the upcoming enemy territory quake wars.
The two cards are both PCI-E.
So, either the Inno3D 6600GT 128 or the Sapphire X800GT 256?
Quake wars will be an upgraped version of the doom 3 engine and wolfenstein is an OpenGL game.

so will the sapphire perform better at these games because i was under the impression that nvidia cards are better at opengl games and doom 3.
