Hi all. I'm putting together a new computer and ive found a few video cards which i am tossing up between. I'd prefer to spend about $200, but i'll go another $50 if it will make a big difference. Can you please take a look at this list and let me know if you have any suggestions. (prices in australian dollars). I'd like to get something which will run the latest games fairly well, but some cards which appear to be almost identical to these cards cost about 3 times as much, so im not too sure what to think.
Gecube Radeon X700 256MB PCI Express - $179
GeCube ATI X700 256meg PCI Express MODEL : RX700-D3 Dual display S-Video TV-out - $179
Sapphire X700 HYBRID ADVANTAGE 256meg DDR3 PCI Express TVout / DVI - $195
Gecube Radeon X800GT2 DDR2 256MB PCI Express Uni-Wise Fan Edition - $245
Sapphire Radeon X800-GT 256meg PCI Express TVout / DVI - $249
How do sapphire and gecube compare with other brands and each other, and how would an x700 compare with a x800gt?
By the way, the system i am planning on buying would have an intel p4 3.2ghz 2mb cache L2 processor, an asus p5gd2-x motherboard (with sata, DDR2 ram, PCI-E, and a 800/533 cache (or something like that)), 1gb DDR2 ram, 160gb western digital SATA HDD, and a 500W case. Sound ok?
Thanks for your advice
