Stay away from 9600's they're evil.
Gecko this is like the 3rd post of yours where you claim something to be bad without backing it up in anyway. If you are going to say a product is bad you need to put your reasons for saying so. The 9600XT is a good card for it's price, but obviously there is better...
well u can get the geforce 256mb cards are they any good?????
These are the ones im looking at right now:
VisionTek Xtasey 9200 256mb
eVGA GeForce 5700 256mb
Azus radion 9250 256 mb
Chaintech GeForce FX 5500 256mb
Diamond Stealth S120 Radeon 9550 256mb
Vision tek Xtasey 9600 256 mb
All those cards are at tiger direct.com Which of those are any good?
256mb of VRAM doesn't automatically make it better. You also got to consider it's other features, performance, and GPU Architecture. The best manufacturer you have listed is eVGA and is probably the best card out of those since none of the ATI's are the pro or XT series and I have the FX 5700 256mb card and it runs todays games fairly well. HL2 it can only run in DX 8.1 and it's a DX 9 game so technically you don't get to see all the details in full glory. Regardless though, the FX 5700 can handle doom3, hl2, and farcry on medium settings, and if the aa and af is off and a low resolution you can put it on high settings....depends a little on your overall system
