How much performance will they lose?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I built a rig for my cousin, who's away at college right now, and I had bought him a Zotac 9600GSO 1GB. I wanted a PhysX card, and this one was the only one I could think of getting to. I was going to replace it with a Visiontek HD 2600XT 512MB if he were to pop up needing it beforehand. How much of a drop in performance do you think this would be?

Awesome feedback bros. +Rep for everyone! Wait...

I suppose the lack of response is due to the facts that the 2 cards are not being used by many people today and it is nightime in the USA and many members are asleep?

Anyway, I do not seem to come across a direct comparison between the 2 cards (9600GSO 1GB and 2600XT 512) mainly because the 9600GSO was released more than 1 year after the 2600XT and they were not in direct competition.

However, as 2600XT's chief competitor back then was 8600GTS, I find a review of 9600GSO 768MB which also includes the 8600GTS.
Looking at those graphs, I would say an average framerate drop of 50% when you go from 9600GSO 1GB to 2600XT 512. Quite noticeable.
