(Megadeth @ Sep 24 2004, 08:03 PM) You know, I think I'm getting addicted to the AMD Forums; people are so nice here and it is just great. My logic behind the whole budget thing is right now I'm going to purchase a graphics card that is good, nothing crappy. When PCI-EXPRESS comes out at the beginning of 2005 (I have confirmed sources which I saw toady so don't worry) then I will go all out and buy top of the line. I'll also get the MOBO w/ PCI-EXPRESS then too, a PCI-EXPRESS GPU (maybe 2), and a TV-TUNER which I might do now too, but I don't know anyways which would be the best choice for me guys?
1. GeForce FX 5500 256 MB
2. PowerColor Radeon 9600 XT 128 MB "ultra"
3. GeForce FX 5700 (Non-Le) 256 MB
That's what I did, got hooked here on all the info, spent all my time debating what to get, again and again...
Finally bought a Radeon 9600 XT AIW because I wanted one for video stuff anyway. Got a New MB ASUS A7V600 to match my DDR 400 and later I'll buy something better then the 2400 XP. Honestly I'm not a FPS junkie so I'll be fine putting off dropping big bucks all at once for a new machine and won't be sad when that I have a 754 when Dual 939 comes out because I'm not getting the new stuff anymore... I'll sit on my good socket A that does me more then enough, until 939 PCI express is readily available and saturated the market. Then get that with a good gaming card and have another system that still is great.
Your comp is almost the same as mine. AIW 9600XT, DDR400 ram, and an AXP 2400+
The fanboyism issue got worse. I'm gone (for now) got better again, I'm occasionally back.<br><br>Don't be stupid. Conroe > K8L SAYS WHO?
