I know there have probably been many video card questions. I hope this isn't a typical one, because I hate redundency.
My question is, which card is most widely accepted by games. I will probably buy Half Life 2, WoW, Swat 4, Far Cry maybe, as well as other games. I need a card that will be the most compatible with most games I'll be playing when I get this pc built. Check my build below if it will help.
I was told at another forum, that the ATI X800XL would perform just as well as the 6800GT in the PC I'm building. But when I compare the two on the 4-5 games that are featured on the "VGA Charts: PCIe" at Toms Hardware
, I saw that at times the X800XL was leading over the 6800 GT, but only a few times. Overall I think the 6800 GT would be more widely compatible to games, and in general be a better card.
What do you guys think?
ATI and GeForce fanboys DON'T GET IN A FIGHT! Lol, keep it civil.
