6600gt & BF2
my friend got bf2 recently, and has an ati 8500 which plays good on low settings, but he wants to play on better graphics. his price range for a new card is 150-200. Will a 6600gt play at high settings with good fps? he has p4 2.4ghz and 512 ram

A 6600GT should be able to play it on high settings, you could probably get a 6800 for $200 which would be more powerful though with 12 pipes and 256bit memory.

wait i always heard gt is better than non gt even if it's a newer card

Look at the specs and you'll see the 6800 is the better card

500/1000 128bit memory
8 pipes

350/600 256bit memory
12 pipes

The clocks on the 6800 are about twice as effective as the 6600GT clocks, so you can double them and find it's a faster card, and it has more pipes as well. For only a bit more you can much better performance, and you can overclock and try soft modding to 6800GT.

dude pny 6800 newegg $$$$$156$$$ retail will run bf2 maxed out but be sure to have it least 1gig of memory or you will be loading the level during game play off ur hd which is makes the game laggy.. the 6800 kills bro its got 325mhz core 700mhz memory and its 256bit its got 12 pipelines but can be unlockable to 16 pipes. it gets 22.4gig bandwidth 6600gt only gets 14gig

I don't doubt you, but how do you figure that out?

128bit vs. 256bit, the clock cycles are more effective in 256bit equipped memory, and gain an edge over the 128bit memory. Think of it like AMD and Intel, the architecture in each core is different and some use less clocks to achieve equal or greater speed.

So since the archetechure is 'twice' the bitsize, then you can double the mem and core speeds every time?

I dont see 6600GT on the list :(

that is such BS. People are running it fine on their 6600 GTs. I run it on my X850 XT, and i dont see that on the list either.
