What graphics card do you use? Apr. 21st, 2007 @ 08:30 PM Reply

I am about to purchase a nvidia FXF geforce 7600GS, its basically the same card as a 7600GTbut its clockspeed is tuned down just a bit and it uses a heatsink instead of a fan. It pulls off a decent frame rate on oblivion, FEAR, quake 4, (kicks the shit out of far cry), and other high graphic games. What card are you using? And if you are using a 7600gs does it do you well?

I use dual SLI nVidia 7200s. Works well with pretty much anything and looks awesome because each only needs to generate half of the screen.

Cool, also, the reason i am purchasing the GS instead of a GT is because the GS is only $120, and still pulls off what i need really well. I don't have a job yet, and $120 dollars is about as steep as she will get.

You sort of need a good graphics card to play new games, buddy, so call me a lifeless fag for wanting to play games if you want, but i am a gamer down to the core =D.

You probably do, it is just intergrated. Warning: DO NOT insert quake 4, Far Cry, or Oblivion into your PC, it will explode. Thank you.

Pfft... Dell integrated graphics

I can't play anything good really. And I can't get just a new card because Dells have integrated motherboards.


Yay, Obama won. Let's thank his supporters:
-The compliant mainstream media for their pro-Obama propaganda.
-Black Panthers for their intimidation of voters.

Bad move, the 7600's are pretty out of date now, if you're looking for good performance with modern games you should be looking at, as a minimum, the 7800 or 7900 series (assuming you want to stick with NVidia), this is all based on the assumption that your other PC specs are up to scratch, if you want proper advice throw your CPU and RAM specs into the topic and it'll be much easier to give you a clear idea of what you should do to bring yourself into the realm of modern gaming.

I won't be knowing my final specs until later this month, so it would be useless to throw them at you. All i know for sure is that my processor is 2.7 ghz non overclocked.

i only have 256mb of ram, but i will be purchasing a shitload of ram by the end of this month, so that doesn't matter.

And the 7600GS is a good move, i don't have 200-300 dollars to spend on a 7800-7900 that will be out of date next month.

Tried to overclock my GeForce 6200, it blew up in my face.
I'm using integrated graphics right now, it's not that bad.

It isn't nerdy at all, you guys are just fucking morons. Its a easy concept to grasp, the better the card, the better the graphics you can play. Simple as that. To install, you simply open up your case and pop it into the right hole. End. Just because you can't do something i self taught myself i will be able to play games like QUAKE 4 , and Far Cry, while you are stuck playing tetris.

So you don't know what computer you're getting, but you're asking for advice on upgrading it already?

I don't understand what you wanted from this thread.

And the 7600GS is a good move, i don't have 200-300 dollars to spend on a 7800-7900 that will be out of date next month.
You clearly don't understand how the hardware market works. You buy something new and good and in a few months it may not be the best anymore, but it'll still be enough to play the games you want to play. If you buy good hardware it usually lasts you for years before you actually NEED to upgrade in order to play the new games. Buying something like the 7600 is a waste of money because it will become useless much faster. =/

I am UPGRADING this PC, not buying a new one. And the 7600GS IS a good move, because it DOES play the games i want to. And you havent been in the graphic card buisness for a while have you? You buy a graphics card, 6 months later a new direct x 10 card comes out wich new games require to play, you buy the card, and repeat 6 months later. It IS the cycle of life. This card fits the current cryteria and pulls off over 60FPS on quake 4 and farcry, etc. Plus, its only 100 dollars as opposed to the 200-300 of other cards. I have done my research on this one, and it comes out to the best solution.

Wrong.

I've had my current card for over a year, I run everything currently out on Medium or High settings at 1280x1024, you do NOT need to replace a card every six months UNLESS YOU DELIBERATELY BUY CHEAP, ALREADY-OUT-OF-DATE, USELESS SHIT.

It is more economical to spend the extra money on a particularly good card now than to repeatedly spend money on older cards. =/

You are fucking yourself in the ass, it's not the way things work, it's you being a fucking idiot.

What card do you use? I want to point out the irony. People here keep saying they have series 6 cards, wich are 130-200 dollars cards, but are under the bar of the 7600gs according to several performance previews. My cheap card is the equivalent to your expensive shit. I may be fuckign myself in the ass, but it appears i have fucked you in the process?
