    hey there

    I have a question, what is a better video card to get?
    6800 series or the x800 series?

    the graphics card that i have in right now just isnt cutting it for me, NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 I mainly play HL2, CSS and Doom3. I was woundering what card is gonna give me better fps for those games. i have the specs of my comp here (vv) and i wanted to kno what card(s) would run great with the things that i have.

    the specs of my comp are:
    Video card:NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700
    mobo:GA-8IPE1000 (2.0)
    processor:p4 3.0 Ghz (OC'd to 3.4 Ghz at the moment)
    PSU: 420 thermaltake ATX 12V
    Cooling: prestock (gonna change very soon)
    RAM: Genaric PC 3200 mismatched
    HD: Maxtor Dimond MAX+9 160GIG

    What do u suggest i should get?

    Why are you double posting this? is this an accident? This is frowned on by the staff and the rest of us. If this is a mistake, cool. Mark it solved. If not then you should have posted in your original post.

    Moot point. This has already been discussed with this poster and we did come up with an X800XT PE as his choice. If he is having second thoughts, then he should respond in that thread.

    Money wasn't a problem and he was pointed to the best AGP card on the market.

    Now, let this thread die a peaceful death. It is useless.

    He straightened it out. Let it be and maybe click the link I posted above. Lets not beat a dead horse. We were all new once. This guy will be a good member if we don't chase him off.

    X800 series are better for the HL2 and Mods
    6800 series are better for most of the other stuff , best for Doom3
    X800 can play higher resolutions better, just go to google and type : x800 vs 6800

    *** i vote for 6800, i have one and it works excellent, also it is cheaper, but u might wanna wait for x800XL ***

    Funny, I am running a 6800GT. I had an X800XT before this card. The X800XT was a better card. This post is dead, does anybody read the thread before they post?

    :rolleyes:

    It does cost more for not much more performance. I crack 11110 3dmark03 with this card and hit 12210 with the X800XT PE. I saved myself $150 and bought a 16 pipe 6800GT from BFG. The thing will hit ultra without trying. It is a great card. The X800XT was a little better. I loved that card.;)
