doom3 @ high ??? 800x600... .man u could crank that higher...

i run 1280x1024 on all my games... no AA in doom 3 but at ultra settings, it doesnt go below the 60... the time ill use AA in a game is when i see rough edges, like in Nfsu2

For me 2xAA and 4xAINSF on HL2 maxed out 1024x768, any higher and i see slowdowns.

Farcry I dont run AA but I guess i should try.
I blame it all on XFX

I'm Socket A aswell Nubius...got Doom3 at high (800x600) with 6600gt.
Yeah your sempron and 512mb of DDR333 is whats really holding you back from running it near the settings that I am, but still the 6600GT carries it's own pretty well

Refer to above comment. Look at the rest of his system dude. A sempron isn't even meant for gaming, the min requirements of slower RAM, 800x600 is about right on par with his system with maxed out eye candy

It's a real bummer, although, eBay my only saviour! *heavely voices* I like getting stuff from America as its cheaper than in UK, due to exchange rate, tis a real help with a lack of money.

The 6600 GT offers awesome performance for such a weak card. Go for it!
