Hi,just wanted to get some opinions on the best graphics card to go for from my current Fx5200. Playing doom 3 with this card is not nice and I want a card that will play the next gen directx 9 games. I have also been considering buying an xbox just for gaming and not upgrading my graphics card.
I would recommend a Geforce 6800 128MB card you can find one here :click here
The card out-performs the Radeon 9800XT all day long and will give you the next-gen card power with-out the damage to your wallet for a review of the product:click here
Ok it's not as all powerful as trhe 6800 256MB GT/ULTRA but the ca5rd is still first class my friend has one in a AMD 2800+ 512MB PC2700RAM set-up and he's enjoying 7000+ in 3DMark03 and playing both DOOM3 and FARCRY on high setting and aa/af.
The card granted is a bit more, £50 than the Radeon 9800PRO but you are getting Smartshader 3.0 and affoading your self a lot more future proofing in your ivestment.
As far as an XBOX I have one and love it but since getting my 6800 GT playing low res games on an XBOX just does'nt cut it any more.
