Radeon X1600PRO vs. Geforce 6600GT

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
SAPPHIRE Radeon X1600PRO(agp) vs. eVGA Geforce 6600GT(agp)... the question is what is the better card? Both well rounded and priced cheap. I know the radeon has 12 pixelpipelines and the evga has 8. the evga runs at 500mhz, 950mhz ( around that) and the radeon runs 500mhz, 800mhz. I am just wondering what would be the better buy and what will last me longer? Even though the radeon is new and the driver is a little buggy overall I believe it is the better buy? What card should I buy?

Very close, but I'd say the x1600pro just shades it. Very little in it though, so whichever you can get the cheapest really.

I'd go with the eVGA 6600GT. I've got it, great card, easy OC. Plus eVGA's Step Up program rules.

Does the extra 4 pixelpipelines really matter?

You can't compare the 2 cards like that. They have different architecture, clock speeds etc.

I'd go for the x1600pro because as far as I have seen it can o/c well and supports AVIVO. Besides, once you activate some aa/af the x1600pro wins the cake (at least in D3D games).
If you play opengl games (doom3, quake4, etc) the 6600GT will be better.

The x1600pro is 125$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102666

and the 6600gt is 120$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130220

x1600pro has 12 pixel piplines while 6600gt has 8

i heard taht gddr2 is not good and heats up quickly so taht is what makes me buy a 6600gt but i do not want to play games like doom or quake. i play games like
FEAR
CS: Source
FarCry
NFS Most Wanted

which will be better for me on my pc (emachines t3085)

6600GT. I have it my system, runs all my games on Medium settings perfectly. I get about 40 FPS in Half Life 2 on high settings at 1024 x 768.
