Which Is The Best Card?

Recommended Posts

hi ppl....

 

just looking for some opinions here.....i have a Asus A9550GE 128MB DDR display currently...i am in the process of trying to overclock it and have downloaded the drivers from omegadrives and also ATitool.... but then i am sitting down and wondering about it all.....

 

y overclock this card? every1 seems to say that this is one lousy piece of work...and guess i made a mistake when i bought it... frankly speaking i would love to make it up to my lady....

 

what i wanna know is... which is the better card? an Ati or Nvidia (i have used both and found the Ati better) especially for PCI Express.... and which manufacturer? Asus?Sapphire? Leadtek?

 

my budget is about 100 to 200 USD....but i am willing to up the budget a bit more provided i can get a dang good card for the money...

 

my requirement is the card must be danged good in terms of capabilities and i can still find it in the market after 6 mths....and more importantly the card must be overclockable.....

 

already system running at 3.3 instead of intended 3.0 and will be pushing to 3.8 before the end of the week....

 

can any1 advise?

 

any ideas ppl

I personally like the Nvidia. But as I said in a post about Hd's, You ask 20 people you'll get 20 different answers. Also I like XFX. Ask other people they'll tell you BFG. Another great card. But XFX is my Preference.

 

Next you mentioned PCI-E do you have a Mobo that has a PCI-e slot? If not you can't use it.

You don't have your puter specs in your sig.

well...for a budget between 100 and 200 there's not really much i can say...don't spend less than 200 on an nvidia (unless it's a 6600gt and it's a good deal =P)

 

my best suggestion would be a 9800pro 128meg...it's what i have and it ROCKS! make sure it's the PRO with 256bit memory.

You'll need an AGP card. Although I'm an ATI fanboy, I'd have to reccomend the 6600GT. I think that you can find them from about $190 and up if I'm not mistaken, just search newegg or ZZF.

im not quite sure about that last post, but if the picture i just looked at is correct you do not have pci express. i think that was the question, right?

 

you can find most cards in both forms. newegg.com man
