Hello again guys . If you have read my preivous thread you will now about my mad obsesion(if thats how you spell it ) With graphics and if you haven't then i am obsessed.
2 questions:
Firstly can anyone tell me what these diffrent numbers and terms mean and which is the best.

Geforce 4 ti 4800 :
Memory Bandwith GB SEC = 10.4
Effective Memory Clock = 650MHz
Fill Rate (AA pixels/sec.) = 4.8 Billion
Graphics Core /Core Clk. = nfiniteFX II / 300MHz
Triangles/sec. (peak) = 136 Million

Geforce Fx 5600

Core Clock = 275 mhz
Memory Bandwidth:12.8GB/sec
Fill Rate: 1.6 billion texels/sec
Vertices per Second:100 million

And Second Question is.
Would you buy a geforce 5700 ultra 256mb or 5900 with 128mb.
or would the ati 9600 be an option.

Memory Bandwith GB SEC = The amount of GBs per Second that the Graphics Card can take.
Effective Memory Clock = The average Clock-Speed of the Graphics Processor within the Card; same scale as any processor.
Fill Rate (AA pixels/sec.) = Number of Pixels, or Polygon Walls, that the Graphics Card can Fill in one second.
Graphics Core /Core Clk. = The type of Graphics Processor.
Triangles/sec. (peak) = Graphics are in Triangles; the most Triangles that the can can render per second.


For that question I would go for the FX 5600; you're not going to worry or notice just 2 GB/s more Bandwidth; but the better things it can do you would notice!

Second Question, certainly the GeForce FX57000-Ultra 256MB - greater than the others, in the fact that it has more Virtual Memory; which is what a Graphics Card wants.

I'm glad to be of help - I'm sure there'll be some ATi maniac on here talking about it and saying how good it is! That should even out the oppinions!

Wow! They were using this on Processors a couple of months ago! Doubt they still are but still!

Dual, 400MHz RAMDACs for display resolutions up to and
including 2048x1536@85Hz

I'd need a 30inch Monitor to see anything that was creating! And brain surgery to watch it for any great length of time!

256-bit advanced memory interface

That is simply amazing - can't wait for the games that can use it!

I doubt ATi has an answer to that big-mumma!

Wow very nice. But i think it could be a load more than i can spend . The max i can afford is £200. I am guessing that will be about 400 -500 .I wish i could afford it
