    Make fun of someone? i had no intention...you were no where in this thread..so..and brainstrom names? ahah ATI-Fanboy is what you are...so if you want to brain storm names then go ahead...and point what out? I am just curious..your post are so vague..be more describtive..

    Edit: I hope your not talking about the ATI-Fanboy thing as being pointed out to me....cause you were picking ATI even before they were dominating..well, obviously you have stuff against me because you did not reply at all in this post...And SOYOMAN seriously was giving stupid advice...when obviously he did not know about ddr3 on cards..or ddr3 at all...so if you not gonna help, and want to start a flame war..then start a thread..i am sure people well reply :rofl:

    And I dont really see why everyone likes the name "Ati-fanboy" on me so much. I use just as many Nvidia cards as Ati, only I think Ati has the better cards right now.

    I am just curious..your post are so vague..be more describtive..
    I'm stupuid.. :wink: you dont need to be the greatest typer for what i do..

    EDIT: and dont mistake my tone..there isnt any/
    And I would like it if you would really stop riding my ass so much.. :no:

    Here try this..http://techreport.com/reviews/2004q1...3/index.x?pg=1
    The card with gddr3 has a higher bandwidth peak..but barely..and it does have advantages over the one without gddr3.
    After reading the article..and seeing that he uses a SHIET load of power and gives little to a disadvantage against the normal card..i just reconmend you going for a 9600 pro/xt...but if you want nvidia..even though there programmable shaders aren't good with the fx line cards...then go with a 5900xt which is a budget version..or a 5900 lx version from leadtek and flash it to a 5950. But i would definitely go with the ati if you plan on playing future games...Unless you plan on buying the fx6800..which is "suppose" to be fixed and kicking ass. But i reconmend 9600xt/pro, 9700 pro..which are cheap now, or a 9800np...which are also cheap. Well atleast to me...TEll me what you think.
