    Anyone seen a comparison between the two with the new(er) Radeon 8500 drivers?
    I seen a comparison between the GF3 Ti 500 and the Radeon 8500 over at Anand but i am interested about the comparison with the normal GF3 as well...

    Haven't seen any like that. But considering that nVidia is trying to downplay the normal GF3 chipsets (to sell more of the Titanium models), it's not really too surprising.

    yeah i saw that review and i was so impressed about the RADEON 8500 that i bought one. i like how the 16 tab filtering is the same as the 64tab filtering (which can only be turned on by a hack in the drivers) on the GF3 TI500 with less of a performance drop. althought the smoothvishion could use a better performance hike it looks a lot better that the GF3 anti-lassing.

    The normal GF3 is on average ten percent slower than the GF3 Ti500 in most benchmarks I've seen.

    So, I gather that "The_Soup" would recommend the 8500 then? I am considering one at the moment the go with my AthlonXP under WinXP in a Gigabyte mobo. Should really rock

    I'm happy with my Radeon8500 - although I had some stability problems under WinXP & had to go back to Win98se. New drivers are supposed to be better but I haven't tried them yet....

    If it's within your means - get the retail as oppose to the OEM/3rd party - it's clocked at 275/550 & mine does 310/620 with a little extra cooling. OEM's & 3rd parties are clocked @ 250/500

    The radeon is great!! it is good in quake and the anti-lasing looks great! although the 6X only turns out 20 fps. i havent had any stability proublems yet. I highly recomend this card.
