im after a bit of advice on what is the best grahics cards for money and performance
unfortunatly im stuck with an AGP slot at the moment so im looking for my best option
im not rich (actually far from it lol) so im looking at these two cards...
underlined the better of the two
the XFX 6800XT which has a core clock of 350Mhz a GDDR3 clock of 1000Mhz (256-bit) and 8-pixel pipe lines
XFX 7600GS which has a core clock of 400Mhz a GDDR2 clock of 533Mhz (128-bit) and 12-pixel pipe lineshttp://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150190
i may be getting this brand or a different one it all depends ont he supplier down here in oz lol
i think i am in love with the XFX 6800XT due to the massive memory bandwidth and the cheap price plus it has 256-bit compared to the 128 bit of the 7600GS
but the downside to the 6800XT is that it only has 8 pixel pipelines compared to the 12 of the 7600GS
so whats better???? what do i do???
the 7600GS seriously lacks in the memory bandwidth and speed but makes it up with 4 more pixel pipelines
what i was planning to do would be to get the 6800XT and overclock both the memory and teh core do you think it would compeate with the 7600GS???
or is more pixel pipelines more benificial than a higher memory bandwidth and 256 bit interface?
please give me some insight... i need help
i wont be buying the card now but rather in about 2 months so prices may go down but i doubt it
thank you for your time..
