Thread: Looking to get new vid card




  1. Default Looking to get new vid card

    I've been looking at a Saphire radeon x800gt (~$175) and am wondering if it is a good purchase to replace my aging ati radeon 9500 pro (which strangely compusa is selling a stock 9500 pro for ~$270, mine has been moddified with a Thermaltake Giant 2 heatsink).

    However would this be a good move to make? is the performance increase good?, i'm currently having to run battle field 2 at low graphics levels and for some reason as well the game will freeze with a constant pitch noise running after it (unsure why).

    That's not that huge of an upgrade. The 9500 Pro is a great card, and you can probably unlock it to be a 9700. Your Battlefield 2 problem sounds like it's more than just the video card.

    I have 1 stick of 512mb corsair xms ddr400 ram, sisandra states: speed: PC3200U 3.0-3-3-8 @200mhz

    [edit]
    What card would one recommend for ... probably less than $300 more likely around $200-250 max. i mainly looked at this newer card for the newer core faster/more memory in hopes that it would bring greater performance, however if it's a system memory issue as well i could purchase another of the same stick stated above, i don't remember if it was buffered or not but i believe it was considering i spent ~$130 on it

    [Edit]
    this would probably be the most expensive i would get :

    ASUS Radeon X800PRO AX800PRO/TVD/256 Video Card - Retail

    for $245

    With 245 i think your better off getting a nvidia card.

    What cards in the price range of 200-300 would be a good buy to replace the 9500 pro? also what price might i be able to sell my Ati 9500 pro with the Thermaltake giant 2 heatsink on it?
