best sempron graphics card

  sezchwarn 23:50 06 Jun 2006

hey people, wondering if you guys could give me advice on which graphics card to get, powercolour x800 gto 16 or chaintech 6600gt:

i know the x800 is better then the 6600gt but ive only got a sempron 3100+ ocd to 2.2 ghz, 1gb ram:

1) i was mainly wondering would the cpu be a bottleneck with the x800 and therefore render it pointless (as x800 gto 16 is quite high end compared to sempron right) or will i see quite a big improvement over the 6600gt?

2) how much extra is it worth paying for the x800 over the 6600gt?(id only consider myself a casual gamer-is the 6600gt more than good enough for that?

thankyou oh wise ones...

Not a wise one here, but to compare the 2 cards have a look here and see what you think click here. I'm am unsure as to whether the Sempron would create a bottleneck, I think it wouldn't as its a fast processor but perhaps someone else would have a more considered opinion. If you are just a casual gamer then the 6600GT would be fine for you.
