ATI vs Nvidia

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My right right now has a ATi x850pro. I have just build a rig that has an Nvidia 7600gt. The 7600gt beats the hell out of the x850 no question. But even thoe the card is much faster then my x850, my x850 still looks better. It runs slower but looks way better, we have his settings turned all the way up. I was wondering if this was something normal or maybe something wrong with the software on the nvida card? But I would buy the nvidia card jsut because of how much faster it is.

Were you able to unlock the extra pipes on your x850? Also, what clocks were you able to achieve?
As far as the 7600gt not having as good of an image as the x850, I think there's another variable going on here. Are the monitors vastly different or is one better adjusted than the other? The newer x1900 cards do have a better image quality than the 7900 series, but that 7600gt should have at least as good of an image as the x850.
