SM3 doesnt actually give you anything new its just more efficient ATI didnt use it in the x800s or x850s as they didnt need that efficiency and they had the cards optimised so much for SM2 it worked out the same.
They were all new cores in that generation(the 6600GT came out at the same time as the x800 as well and kicked its [bleep] even then) i dont have any preference other than whats the best going for someone like me(a gamer that likes hid games fast and beautiful) so thats why i go ATI the image quality is superior and with the new generations they can run HDR and anti aliasing simultaneously where the 7 series cards cant so thats why i would never buy a 7 series unless it was ridiculouly cheaper than an ATI card which it isnt its more expenisive.
GTOs are very nice cards, kinda like the kind of thing nvidia had going with the GS except ATI went even lower down the market with the GTO.

now got 1 meg of memory, new graphics card 256 all in wonder x800, new 400 watt power supply and BF2 still seems to lagg and stuff, dont get it,
i have a dell 15" lcd monitor will do 75mhz, i have set up desktop to that refresh rate so no probs there,
when i adjust settings in BF2 to full pretty mode ie 1078 by whater and 75 mhz ref. rate it displays nicely but now and again my direction will stick on movement in the game ie ill take up to 5-10 steps in which ever direction i was going in before stopping even when i take my finger off the keys ( as if lagging)?? but only now and again which is what puzzles me it is the same when i turn everything off or down to low quality mode???
any ideas? ive altered my agp on motherboard to 256, i belive i have the latest drivers so...
short of buying a new system i dont know what to do..

I mean everything else sounds good. Turned off AA right? Also, maybe try 60 mhz as a refresh rate? I don't know if refresh rates play that big of a role though...

I cant believe your playin on a 15" monitor, wow not much point in highest settings with only 15" of screen your going to miss half of the detail, CPU would be my thinking as well, its probably the game loading new textures into memory i think combined with a bit of lag on the cpu processing the data.
But a 15inch moniter ain't too bad is it?
