    Exclamation video card buyers list,read this<----

    hello all,
    im here and im new to tell alot of u guys i been reading up on all of you with mid-low end cards with all these problems and trying to fix these problems by overclocking?,pipe mods?lol stop right there plz.if a card runs like p00p when u install it,go to play your fav game then that should be a sign u bought blah cards.heres the card list for games i play now and know for a 100 percent fact on how they run being i grab a new card every 6 months(or less sometimes)and know first hand how they really hold up.keep in mind these cards im mentioning are all stock speeds,no pipe mods,overcrapping etc.you want to be told you bought a good card or about to hunker down $150-$200 for current card,read this article i made for the real non sugar coated card world from one of the hardest bf2 gamers u ever met.and btw pleasure to be here.
    the following is not a bash against certian model cards,just to let u know what cards are like in the real gaming enviroment,being i owned mostly every card out going on average of $300+,i keep em for 6months -1 year tops,sell em lose $150-$200,get new rocket top card,costing me $200 a year that way aint bad,ehh guys?freinds have bid wars on my old cards ..rofl!!....plz read below

    best agp cards out now for under $300
    x1800xt,x850xt-pe,7800gs,7900gt

    $275 and under
    6800gt\ultra+ only,only those 2 models(6600 series bleh)example:1 single 6800ultra smokes 2 6600gts in sli badly.
    x850xt-amazing 16 pipe cards(tie-beat 6800ultras in some tests)
    *****x800-an series(i do not recomend any series 800 cards,resons explained later)

    *im not going to mention 6600 or 800 series cards at all because they simply dont support quake4/bf2/fear/cod2<-(very demanding gpu wise games) above 1024x768 settings using hi settings and still med-hi fps,so there uselss at this point to even think about talking about being that most 17-19,s (crt or lcd)have 1024x768 native(default)resolution..

    best pci express cards as follows:

    $600 7900gtx 512(1st tie)
    $550 ati x1900xtx(1st tie)
    $280 7900gt(2nd)smoldering fast---beats 7800gtx =0
    $400 7800gtx 256(2nd tie,plays anything,any res\game amazing)
    $400 x1800xt(3rd tie)

    $200-$350 range of winners all day below(pci-ex only)

    6800gt,6800ultra,7800gs,7800gt,7600gt,7300gt,x850x t(or pe) (excellent cards)
    ****all x800 series simply are all talk,i seen first hand these x800 series are horrible fps playing q4\bf2\cod2\and fear 1024x768-hi.u must understand this is not a bash on these cards i have a post here(vid card forum) telling u my 2 happy freinds who bought these cards and what happend.yet ppl try to unlok pipes,mods,lol for what?i guess if your into playing russian rolute renambling broken pipes the companys tests said there werent up to spec,so they disabled for a reson.never the less ppl still give it a shot and attempt this to try and hang with basic stock 6800 gt speed?...ya,sad

    *7800gtx\7800gt\runs great all resolutions ,all games,no issues. but a single 7900gt smokes the x1800xt,7800gtx badly for a mere $280...no brainer at this point.

    x700,x1300,x1600,6600,x800 series(all)are good for bf2,quake4 1024x768 settings low-barely med (if thats your thing?)overclock,pipe mod,there not going to come close to the cards i mentioned above period.this is not a bash post.this is to inform my new freinds on the real deal with these cards i had or freinds had in the past from real world experiences.im not going to sit here and tell ppl how to make there cards that werent meant to run these newer games when they simply cant.choose wisely,and dont forget bf2 needs a minmum of 2 gigs of ram to run above 1024x768 settings hi to run correctly.since bf2 came out i had 6800le(crap)6800gt(good til 1024x768 hi)6800ultra(good til 1680x1200 med-hi)7800gt(amazing hi,all res,lil stutter begins firefight only),7800gtx(freind has,simply amazing,like 7900gtx performance,now 7900gtx 512(mine!,insane,not going to gloat,brag..its real nice guys).ultimatly u get what u pay for period.im trying to make something run faster then it cant mentallaity is a bunch of wasted posted pages that could be avoided if u educate yourselves with knowledgr from my self who had these cards or freinds did.like putting a supercharger on a toyota corrala to beat a 8cyl vette,might come close but not the real thing,and flaky always to boot.


    the cards below simply are not worth even the effort to try and help with advice.these low-mid cards are good for et(hi),hl2(low-med),quake3(hi)bf2(low-med)**note**bf2-->(low-med,ppl always saying lag,lag..lol plz,its called hardware lag!!,notice that 20 ping u got?)lol.most decieving of these cards and sad part is ppl paid top $ for the x800series cards($300+)for 0 performance,argue all u want,there not good for bf2 or quake4.continuing on below...

    ati x300\nvidia 5200-paperweight
    x700\nvidia 5700\5900\9600\9800-heavier,more expensive paperweight(q3,et days good = cool..)
    x800xl(have never seen 1 of these cards run good,minus quake3..wow 4800ti can run that..)
    x800pro,etc-other series 800(have never seen 1 of these cards run good)
    x1600xt are 9600,s(wow?,new pci ex interface\added mem)
    6600 (any series )were never good at bf2,quake4 period,meant for et,q3,cod,wow(sli or not,single 6800ultra smokes 2x6600gt in sli...sad,same price too,no brainer?my freinds who bought these cards hate themselves because both wound up buying my older 6800gt and ultra i had..)

    again this is not a bash post this is the real deal to inform ppl about what your money is getting u.i read alot of guys saying try this,try that?it is what it is.i got my bf2 were i finally want it now after 4 cards later...lot of time\money vested.i hope some of u guys will not bash and fully understand were im coming from.the ones who will bash me are the ones defending good money spent of mid-low performance cards thinking that the pipe mods,overclocks will save the day.to each there own.again this is the real deal.ppl only respond plz with solid pcs 2ghz+ machines,having 2 gigs matching ram(1 gig min),real ocz\antec\comparable 400watt+ powersupplys(not noname 500watt ps,s apply) before u can even try and figure out what is wrong with your cards before u post.these games of today are alottttt different then the good old quake3 ti4800days...."its hardware lag,not internent lag,d@m!"<---famouse quote i tell guys on bf2^^^^^^^^^^

    I believe he was referring to the fact that the stated test results shows a nearly doubled score on the 06 version of the benchmark over the older version.

    Precisely, in the stated configuration (single 7900GTX) that '06 score doesn't add up.

    It is impossible, unless the '06 score is two cards in SLi.

    This guy who scored this is a hard out overclocker, using liquid cooling and max clock speeds, even he hasn't broken 10K ....... yet

    No problem mate, figured it was a typo, still 10K plus on '05 is excellent, what clocks were you running to get that score?

    '06 is a lot more dependent on cpu than '05, I'm having trouble even breaking 3K on my old Northy due to the fact it is summer here and I can't oc past 3.75 at present.

    I will be keen to see what an oced Conroe will do, in tandem with SLi 512 video cards it will be a killer imo.
