My Hercules uses that chipset this card sucks lol, can't even play Farcry with everything on low, all AA off, etc. without it jogging everytime a boat or something comes.

That will soon change

I SERIOULSY doubt the 5900 will be able to run Doom very smoothly at AVERAGE settings. In fact I'm gonna say it won't. Benchmarks for the 5950 running farcry got an average of 48.6fps at 1024X768 resolution with settings at max on a pentium 4 3.2ghz. Your probably thinking "pretty good," and your right that is pretty good, but we are talking about the 5900,a step below, running a game with even better graphics than far cry. Other factors come into play also, like processor and Ram. To run Doom3 at highest settings its recommended you have 2 gigs of ram! Whoever started this thread, what are your computers specs? You may have them as your signature, I'll check.

Directly quoted from Pc Gamer based on ID exculsive statments:

"So long as you have atleast a Geforce 4 MX card (and remember, a Geforce 4 MX is LESS powerful than a Geforce 3), you should be able to play Doom 3 with many of its bells and whistles at a decent clip."

So there you have stop your whining most of the cards in peoples systems today will be able to play Doom 3, okay.

The benchmarks you see are at extremly high detail. ID has specifically designed the game to include the broadest market by having a milion settings the game can be played at.

True a nicer gen card can make it look nice, but the big upgrade rush doesnt have to be a rush. You can wait a bit until prices go down which isn't in the forseeable future. With the limited quantities of cards.

Well its an XT not an ultra whoever said the ULTRA was that cheap is mistaken.

If you arent looking to spend a whole lot go with on of the lower X600's of a plain 6800 non ultra no gt .

X600 is in the $230 price range and the 6800 is around the $280

OK, I've investigated prior to starting this thread, and as far as I'm concerned I'm a fairly serious gamer, and yes I've read that Doom 3 'can be played on a GeForce 4 MX' BUT, I can't be arsed to play it on shitty (when I say 'shitty' I mean, oh dear god, was this game made in 1993?!) graphics setting, becuase with my GF3 Ti200 ain't gonna be able to hack anything better, developers ALWAYS undersell how much of a beast your PC's gotta be to play their game this way they sell more.
