Question On Buying 6600gt Video Card

How much better would a Ti 4200 be? Ask ! Forget about it in SC:CT. I still dont know what the preformance difference would have been between 128 meg and 256 meg. http://olivettipc.com/question-on/question-on-hub.html

eVGA.com?s GeForce based graphics cards can be found at Best Buy, Office Depot, Micro Center, and many online e-tailors or purchased on the eVGA.com website. Ask ! Then the 6600GT with it's SM3 loses out to the faster card IMO. Now it runs fine, but i want a new graphics card to output to hdmi, and help out my elder-statesman processor a bit.

It's still not a perfect comparison, though, because PC Gamer generally uses $200 cards in their mid-range systems.

More then anything else the 6600GT a great 'stop gap' AGP card for those people that have slighly older processors and AGP motherboards to camp on until they actually upgrade their if what you intend to use it involves some graphics, or in short if you want decent performance from the GPU then dont buy the gt610. However, I hadn't bothered to read the specs, so after the video card arrived, I had to upgrade the motherboard to one that supported PCI-X, I had to upgrade the CPU

I currently use dual 17" lcd monitors on my primary system at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. Crazy. First off, what resolutions do you run at? I have a 6800GT in my work system with a 19-inch LCD and rarely see major slowdowns running games at 1280x1024.

Instead I'm going to point out that by getting Riva Tuner and reading the forums on it's uses, you still have some untapped potential in your 6800 that you could unleash.

In 2005, you'd have done better, at least in the second year, buying the 6600GT & 7600GT than buying the single GF 6800 Ultra (and would again save about $100).

is it good? Anything slower will be in the 20-25fps range or require serious drops in features and resolution. The 9800 pro is going to be four years old next January, hence the $500/4= $125.

I don't really want to go from a 512 meg card to a 256 meg card unless there is a significant boost of speed. The 7800 actually is physically "Burned" so it you cannot access the locked features.

Running your 15 inch monitor at 1600 x 1200 resolution is really cool but not really practical viewing.

It works so well, IMO, that 2xaa is all you need. Register|Forgot Password?
