I think IQ is not an issue anymore, you cant go wrong if you choose one of those cards but I would prefer GTX.
$324 for X1600Pro ? OMG!! Where did y bought it?
Congrats..!!! and happy gaming.
Cannot OC at all. 6800 and nForce3 board known as bad combo for VGA OC, beside Im using cheapo mix RAM and poor mobo for OC (Gigabyte K8NS Pro)...
Darn! 7600GT beats my old 6800GT AGP.
Active cooling always more trusty for me.
This driver runs great on my 6800GT AGP. And yes I noticed temperature increase also (about 3-4 degrees) than my previous driver (FW83.40).
Your current XP2500+ is better than any Sempron processor with socket A mobo.
Very good advise from CraptacularOne, thats depend of what you need, but If you can get XFX6800GS with 1.6ns speed memory, take that!!
Thats a very good score compare to mine ( scored only 5600 max :frown: ).
Yes Barton 2800+ is the best option for socket A mobo if you can find the new one.
I'd wait for 7800GS
6800GS no doubt :mad3:
Yea, 6800GS is cheap and fast vga, its very good for the price and performance ratio.
Asus 6800 Gamer Edition comes with DDR3.
I did 400/650 stable with my FX5600, it comes with Samsung 3.6ns memory. Dont forget to add the memory heat spreader if you want to OC your card.
6600GT but I suggest go for 6800GS
Im using K8NS PRO and 6800GT, the only VGA driver that solved my freeze problem is FW 71.20 (AGP fast write: OFF).
