want to select pci-e card

and i was wondering if it is a good card, and how much does it afects that it has 256 bit insted of 128 ?
Thank you!

The ATI X8** range is not very good because it doesn't support Pixel Shader 3 which the next generation games will requier to run the games in directX 9. The Nvidia 6 series cards do support this feature.

Ignoring that. It is better to have 256b, as it has wider bandwidth, so it is better.

But. It still is not a good card: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2299&p=6

so then what about this:
Prolink PixelView GeFORCE 6600GT PCI-E, 128MB DDR3, 128Bit, Core Clock 500MHZ, Memory Clock 1000MHz
or maybe someone can sugest something?

or this : 6600GT PCI-E 128MB GDDR3

Can you get a better manufacturer than that? Like Leadtek, eVGA.

They are the same.

i found SVGA LEADTEK GeForce PX6600GT 128Mb 128bit DVI+TV PCI Express retail would it be enouth 128mb?

You can go take a look at the benchmarks of the cards in the PCI-e review at www.tomshardware.com they are pretty good about explaining why one is better then the other in their recommendations.

800 is better than 6600GT because of more pipelines.

aladin 07-08-2005 12:59 PM

so if i chouse x800 with 256bit will i have any problems about quality.

Yeah it wont run new games at full settings due to a lack of support

Nvidia is your best bet to look at now, probolly a 6800GT as it's the same price
