but an nvidia card is better than that card such as a 6800gs. it can oc better and it will last longer with games. Nvidia has shader model 3.0 and x850 has 2.0

$180 is pretty nice, but I think I'd still take a 7600GT over it.

a 6800gs?lets take it 1 step further .lets see how it does up against the 6800ultra that smolders by the 6800gs\gt......

The x850pro is comparable to a 6800GT(16 pipe) not a gs(12 pipe),lmao.
next then x850xtpe to a 6800ultra.


ok, this is wierd. first of all, on what settings are u supose to run 3dmark05 at?

first test, med settings = 4493
second test, max settings = 3827!!!
third test, 1024x768, no AA and optimal filtering = 5773

my CPU is at 2.0ghz stock<!-- google_ad_section_end --><!-- / message -->__________________

Here's my situation. I am trying to build a decent gaming cpu (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/stuck-X850XT-6800GS-7600GT-ftopict180026.html#) for a price under $800. I am wanting to be able to play Battlefield 2 at max settings. If you were on a budget, and say all of these video cards were the same price, would you get the X850XT, the 6800GS, or the 7600GT? I will probably pair this with an Nforce 4 mobo.

http://72.14.203.104/search?q=cache:Yrh0bO-h5mYJ:forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/stuck-X850XT-6800GS-7600GT-ftopict180026.html+6800gs+vs&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The X850XT has 16 pixel pipelines, the 6800GS has 12 I think, and the 7600GT has 12 also (but only 128mb memory).


you want to play at max setting but which resolution? with a 7600GT i guess you'll be able to play at 1024x768

1st - X850 XT

The only card on your list with 16 pielines and a 256-bit memory interface (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/stuck-X850XT-6800GS-7600GT-ftopict180026.html#).
It'll give the best framerates in BF2 with Antialiassing enabled, and at higher resolutions than the 7600 GT can pull for sure.


2nd - 7600 GT

Nice card, new technology, high clockspeeds and Shader Model 3, but a 128-bit memory bus. 12 pipelines vs the X850 XT's 16 pipelines.


3rd - 6800 GS

Basically an underclocked 7600 GT (12 pipelines) with a 256-bit memory interface. The stock 7600 GT is better stock because of it's high clockspeeds, but if you're into serious overclocking you might get more milage out of the 6800 GS because of the memory bandwidth. I've seen overclocked 6800 GS' do amazing things.

Im going to agree 100% with cleeve, if you want the best frame rate the x850xt is the way to go.

If you want SM3 then you may want to get the 7600 instead but it depends on the games you play. I myself have never found the need for it and I would go for speed over fancy features.

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

X850XT will bring better framerates then all the cards listed. SM3, is an interesting point. If you get a 7600GT (for example) some newer games won't run at max swettings and won't use SM3 to full advant

My thoughts exactly. I have been on the upgrade the video card (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/stuck-X850XT-6800GS-7600GT-ftopict180026.html#) quest for sometime. After 2 months of hard core reviewing, I have went with the x850xt. I got it from newegg.com for 169 bucks. I could have gotten one of the other ones. The reviews on the 6800gs alot of people had major hardware trouble with it. One person had 6 DOA cards before getting one that worked. The 7600gt is ok, personally I wanted to give ATI a try again. I had a 7000 it was good then a fx5200(crap) a x300(way better than the fx5200) a 6600 vanilla 128. So for me the price was right and the card looks like a sweet choice. Less than 10 reviews lower than 3 stars, mostly stuff like the sicker fell off, its loud as hell , blah blah blah. Go with the x850xt. 256bit 256MB ram (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/stuck-X850XT-6800GS-7600GT-ftopict180026.html#) for 169 bucks! Thats a good deal.

enough said.....x850xt blows the 6800gs away,not even in the 16 pipeline class.....read enough goodnight.point proved x850xt by far is the fastest without even trying card...:uhh: 7600gt seems nice but 6800gs....rofl?cripes u mean the model before 6800gt(gs lol)ya.....this card beats easily the 6800ultra\gt...lmao the gs...dude..read some more plz.i sould relate if u had a 6800ultra...still then naaa

With the exception of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and Black and White 2, a 7600GT will play pretty much anything at high settings on high resolutions. Battlefield 2 will easily be maxed out at 1600x1200. SM3 can get used as much as possible in any game that supports it. An X850XT will XT will handle most games at around the same settings, except it won't support some eye candy in newer games, and anything on the Doom 3 engine will perform pretty badly compared to nVidia competition.

However, X850XTs have dropped below $170, which is pretty good. I suppose I'd be willing to pick up one of those if I were in the market for a new card. I've got a 7800GT coming though (cost me $230 shipped for a used one), so an X850XT is out of the question.

this was x850xt over 6800gs reply,just so happens 7600gt came into play with the 3 cards ppl were talking about in the posts i copied.the x850xt i say again smokes the 6800gs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
ps-yawg i had 7800gt-very nice card but did u know for $50 more u could have got a 7900gt for $280? some places i seen em...24 pipes :0
$50 for 4 more pipes..btw a 7900gt beats the 7800gtx256 card :uhh:
The 7900GT has better specs... 24 pixel pipielines 500mhz cc 1500mhz memory speed (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/7800GT-7900GT-ftopict179821.html#).

i recently purchased this card from Newegg.

eVGA 256-P2-N517-AX Geforce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/7800GT-7900GT-ftopict179821.html#) Express x16 Video Card - Retail

A few days later they took it off their lists and replaced it with a card that appears identical for more money:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130277 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130277)

They also added the 7900GT at the same price I originally purchased my 7800GT for. eVGA 256-P2-N563-AX Geforce 7900GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/7800GT-7900GT-ftopict179821.html#) - Retail

The 7900GT has better specs... 24 pp 500mhz cc 1500mhz memory speed (http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/7800GT-7900GT-ftopict179821.html#).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130281 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130281)

What are the differences good and bad in the design of these two cards? What the hell happened in the last 3 days? Furthermore, should I request a replacement 7900 from newegg? (The card hasnt even arrived at my house.) Thanks.

Didn't have $50, and I've never seen a for $280.
