new graphics card without bottleneck - Page 2

post #11 of 16
256ram / ATI 9600 because:

- having 128ram will slow down your rig (I had a duron 1100/128megs) and 256ram almost halved the loading times (on XP)
- Anything better than 9600 will perform quite the same (bottlenecks: cpu, ram, agp 4x)
If you can find any I'd choose a 9500pro. If you install "ati omega drivers" it is magicaly transformed into a 9700pro without bios editing.

Yeah just found out not too long ago i was getting a new one. But i still need to buy someone a decent gfx card.
So the 9500pro can "transform" into a 9700pro?
Sounds good ill have to check into that.

I agree, my 9800 pro 128mb goes way higher than an XT and gets 52k in AM3, at stock speed it got like 39k or something like that. If you do get a 9600 make sure it's an XT and NOT a SE, those are worthless.

A link for the omega drivers I was talking about (transforming 9500pro in 9700pro) They install just as the normal catalysts do, at one point it makes you choose if you want normal driver, 9500 to 9700 mod or 98000se to 9800pro mod. Just select the one with 9500 to 9700 and you should have a fully functional 9700pro.
