Post 3+ Months Ago

i'm going to buy a new videocard, my board is an EPOX-8RDA3+ which supports 8X AGP...

now in my budget i can afford Geforce-FX 5900XT or Radeon 9600XT [$200 NZ Dollars] both 128MB

can anyone advice me on which one is better! I use this machine for gaming (Doom 3, Far Cry, War Craft etc etc..), watching DVDs... and why a 256MB is not as good as 128MB???

thanks

if you play HL2 platforms, go with 9600XT - recommended GFX card for HL2 and CS:S

so, a bug just flew into my monitor and died... but yeah, if you DO play HL2/CS:S - the games were build for the 9600XT. but if you play other games, and not that, go w/ 5900 xt

I think i'll try the Geforce-FX 5900XT, at the moment i'm using a Radeon 9100, before that was a Radeon 7500. I think its time to try "nVidia" though the FX 5900XT is abit more expensive :(

thanks guys
