    Ok i was reading some reviews bout graphics cards.....and chekin the results of 9800GT.. and X800 ...i came up with a post where a person who has Gforce2 MMX w 32MB ram have played DOOM 3 :shock: ofcoruce @ lower frames ......can it b true ???

    if it is than why Do pple invest in costly Affairs like 9800GT ??? i mean dose'nt it makes sence to go for a bit lower End card like ATI9800 Pro or 6800 Ultra ....coz not only they paly the new games ...but they are able to play certain Future games...with some limitations...ofcourse

    and finally is there any desent card below 2.5 to 3k which will let me play Doom 3 and below games..like Max payne 2..Prince of Persia Sand of times ..IGI ...HL1 or may b 2 also ....well i was ready to pay 2.5 k for a MSI Ti 4400 128 MB DDR ..but the Pric shoot up to 3.5 K :cry:

    well there is another Issue of wethere Direct X or PCI express ... if i go 4 a new Mobo wat sud i go for Direct X or PCI express ??

    well i gess am too confused to deside....help me out pple

    The best thing for U is a second hand card...
    Because U seem more price concious...

    If u wanna buy a card below 2.5-3k's then I'll say GeForce4 MX4000 as it play all the games listed by you except Prince of Persia coz it uses pixel shaders...

    But don't flame me if any of the future game don't work with it....
    Coz Pixel Shaders are the way to be...

    Yup.It,s pretty true.....

    Lemme ask u then why ppl go from mumbai to delhi by flight or train when they can walk or cycle to there?Got the point?

    None....if u want to enjoy playing it....
    Many...if u want it 2 look like your old dos games

    Yup...i have played MP-2 with a GeForce2MX 100/200 card....IGI & HL1 too

    Thats an absurd qn altogether......
    DirectX and OpenGL are the 3D programming interfaces used by graphics cards.PCI Express is a new type of graphics card using a new standard of PCI bus which is much faster & launched to replace present AGP cards.
    If u meant choosing between AGP & PCI Express,go 4 latter.U can find the reasons from various topics on graphics cards.........

    Hi

    i have a related query. I am upgrading my pc and the cost of the basic system (mobo+processor) has gone overboard. Now i have approx 4500 for my graphic card which happens to be a pci-e card. any suggeations for a good buy. i plan to replace this card within 6 mths.

    thanx

    That cud be possible but running d3 on gfx2 wud mean watching a slideshow read less than 30FPS. Also the game settings will be on low without AA and AF. This is turn means u are not playing the games the way its meant to played ! ;)

    Its a 9800XT, GT is used with Nvidia cards ;) The best deal no matter what says is getting cards which are in the mid segment like the 6600GT cuz they offer a amazing price/performance ratio.

    Get a fx5200 since u have a limited budget. Also if some1 is selling a 9600 2nd hand @ 3-4k dont hesitate to go for it ;).

    Umm those are two diff things u r talking abt. U probably meant AGP and PCI-E. PCi mobos r expensive for now but if u want future compatibility then go for em.

    Best is that U wait 4 3D1 GFX cards from Gigabyte bcoz they raise the performance ahead Gefoce 6800 ultra bcoz of 2 core in a single card.

    U can play doom3, nfs underground, Half-life2 and may b even nfs underground2 on a Geforce 2 Mx .

    1 st am sorry i ment AGP2/4/8X not DirectX ... :oops:

    thx a lot ppple for sheding some lite on the issue

    i guess i had mentioned b4 some where that am gettin a new ATI 9000 at 2.5K...sud i go 4 it ??

    well lemme be frank with u ....i have been seriously thinking of going for a Upgrade ....3.0HT , Intel PCI Mobo ....etc...but the Project is not Kick Starin due to Lack of Vitamine M :wink: .......

    so am lookin 4 a card which i can Couple w my Currnt PIII , 256 MB ,SIS Chipset ....to play few games..am not sayin that i wil play D3 ..i know i cant w my current specs .... but i can go4 some others like Max payne 2 HL1 ..etc
    games like max 1 , Fifa 2002 , Future Cop LAPD , etc..play smoothly on my 4MB AGP Machine so a Desent card may help me Exploit some new games also..

    so am lookin 4 a card which wll work on my old machine..and if i go4 UPGrd than it sud also work w my new machine...

    now the real Glintch is if i go4 a PCI card it wont work wth my current machine..and if i go4 AGP4/8X card it wont work w my new machine
    :x :x

    and finally am back where i started....i guess i sud 1st go4 a upgrade..and then for a CArd... :oops: Heehee :?

    :roll: exactly the problem i was having...
    whether to upgrade my AGP card or go for PCI-E one...

    the best option wud be to let ur gaming instincts lay low for a while till u have plenty of vitamin m... :wink: hope u understood!!

    then go for a gud gaming rig...dat wud cost u around 50k! :twisted:

    NOP....ati radeon below 9600 wont b a good buy.they became good after 9600 only.Get GeForceFX 5200 or GeForce4 Ti 4200 instead.These will fit into your budget n will allow u 2 play MP-2,HL-1 & FIFA 2002 etc in acceptable frame rates.......

    Since u r planning 2 buy a new machine,dont waste much on a card right now......patience pays... :lol:

    hey grinnie....u never told me that....

    Hi ppl,
    I too have a query regarding graphics cards.A bit different , though.
    So I think this is a good place to ask (without starting a new thread! ) :wink:
    My dealer is selling me an ASUS GeForce FX 5200 128 MB for 6500/-
    Is it worth the money or are there cheaper & better alternatives?

    off to "never ever" land
    ASUS cards are that expensive
    but paying 6.5k for an fx 5200 is sooo not worth it
    for that price go for a radeon 9600 NP from club3d/gigabyte
    DO NOT go for powercolor version

    ASUS is that expensive bcuz of its software bundle mostly
    and ofcourse the brand name
    any other brand .. today u can get the same fx 5200 for 3k ... even less
    think abt it
