Graphics cards!

  retro_hood 17:44 28 Nov 2006

I got the choice of getting:

512MB nVIDIA GeForce 7600GS Graphics


256MB GeForce 7600GT Graphics


512MB ATI Radeon X 1600 SE Graphics

Are any good?

I Play such games as World Of Warcraft,Warcraft 3, Rome:Total War and soon to be newly released mmorpgs such as Warhammer Age of reckoning and Lord of the rngs online ( both which i assume require decent GC's)

In order,best performance first:




The 7600GT is by far the fastest card here.Do not be fooled by the 512MB of the GS version.Very few games need that much RAM and those that do will be running at settings way beyond the capability of the 7600 series.

The x1600 is not up to the performance of the 7600 series cards and in its se form is even slower than the standard x1600

click here for all things graphics/pc and click here for more specific details.The x1600se is not listed so use the pro version and remember that it is a good deal faster than the se.

I agree that the 7600GT is the best out of this bunch.

As to DX10. Then the simple answer is "no".

Though Nvidia's drivers will be "DX10 compatible" only the latest cards (EG. Nvidia 8800 will be DX10 capable) and the prices for these at the moment, are out of this world (see click here )
