New Video Card


Paranoid

Recommended Posts

Just ordered a Sapphire Radeon 9600XT 256MB. With shipping and taxes it came to $300 Canadian. This is going to replace my 9600 Pro in my main machine (the 9600 Pro is getting reassigned to my secondary machine). Can't wait to see how far I can overclock it. That sure is going to help my 3DMark2001SE scores (currently getting around 13500 overclocked).

Good Choice. You won't see much of a difference though, maybe 1200 points in 3DMark01, no visual difference will be seen. It'll OC a bit further, but you'll need to put a better cooler on it if you want to really stretch it. Still a good choice though, I hope your happy with it. :D

15K is very possible for a 9600XT, but you'll need to upgrade the cooling and OC the heck out of it, and your CPU. I've seen those cards do high 14K with a maxed OC on stock cooling, with an upgrade and ramsinks, you should see 15K. Tweak it to the max and get 15k!
