Purchasing a Gfx card next week, can anybody recommend what chip is best. I'm looking to get a good gaming qualites out of it.
My local PC store has recommended the Abit 256mb. 8agp,Geforce FX 5600 card at a price of £119.00.They also have the same card with 128mb for £109. Anybody any idea why the 256mb is only £10 more, is it just a selling point.
The GeForce FX's are noisy cards, don't go for anything below a FX5600 if you get one. If you want to go NVidia I'd get a GF4 Ti4400 or Ti4800 both of which are fairly cheap now.
i think the extra RAM is just a selling point, I read somewhere that it doesn't make that much difference.
I've just put a Radeon 9600Pro 128MB into my new PC. Really pleased with it, handles almost all UT2003 levels at full resolution without a jerk in sight. Mine's a Sapphire from click here it's about the best price I found, and doesn't come with any bundles games, so you're buying pure GFX card.
