    OK here's the deal, I need to make comparison between old cards with new drivers for my site here . I want to make a comparison and answer the question whats the best old card .. Can you lend me your cards for a few days or a week ?

    Why I want to do this :

    Well the thing is , some people don't play all the new games , they only play wow, starcraft . so those people just need the old cards , the most basic card .

    and if they look online to see what other games they can play with that card , they will find 2 year old reviews . i would like to remedy this situation, and make a one stop comparison for those few . They can look at it and say this card is better than this . Now many reviews don't compare HD2600xt to some other older cards . That's why I want to do this

    Cards Required :

    Nvidia -> 7800GT to 8600GTS

    ATI -> X1650XT to HD2600XT

    I'll pay the shipping .


    You will not get ripped off.

    you can use the toms hardware vga charts too and save yourself the trouble / cost. It compares the old cards in most new games.

    Why don't people compare with the Geforce 6200? I can even play crysis on it with everything on low, not OC'ed.

    Surely it would be easier to collect Shader Model scores for these cards instead of going to a HELL of a lot of trouble getting cards and sending them back. I doubt many will do it and if they do it will much much older cards, i doubt you will get anything above a 7300GT in price and performance.

    pffft 8600gts is fsater than the 7800gt! ive even tested it out myself. The 8600gts performs about 10-25% faster

    You would save yourself a lot of money by simply looking up different reviews for all the cards on different sites comparing all the scores for the average and then compositing it all together in to a readily available chart.

    .. Oh wait. Toms Hardware already did that ..

    you have several problems.
    You are not trusted.
    toms hardware has already done this.

    What luck -- I don't even have to start a new thread. I've been looking to test high-end sports cars recently, so if anyone has a Bugatti, Aston Martin, or McLaren, please send them to me. I'll pay for shipping :)

    I don't think anybody really cares.
    Seems like a waste of money, time and bandwidth.

    EDIT: Aw man, I just looked at your site. Looks like you're really trying. Still, I don't think it's worth the effort unless you enjoy doing something like this. There's about a gazillion sites who do more or less the same thing.

    I really admire your effort, but you need some backing from somewhere (i.e. a reputable review site) so that people will take you seriously and actually use what you create thru all the hard work you put into your testing. I think its a good idea, Especially if you get backing from someone. Say for instance if you got charts on a site like Guru 3d comparing different drivers etc (Graphics Drivers Charts) Then people would acctually look at what you are doing
