Yeah the thing thats tempting me to get an X850 XT is that its the same price as a 6800, and I was impressed by the actual specs of the card, and a few reviews ive read it has beat the 6800 in terms of framerate on Half Life and Far Cry, although whats the deal with psm 3? what is it and how does it affect gameplay?
I'd imagine from what ive read it ups the visual effects, but does it really make that much difference? And is it worth getting a 6800 over an x850 xt purely because of this?
Anyone know which would be faster out of the two cards at the above games?
thanks all for your comments so far!
