Default Video Card Q's

Ok I am ordering my computer today it will be an e6400, 2GB memory it come with an 7300LE which is crap I know. I dont know if I want to get an 8800GTS since the R600 is really close on launching which beats the crap out of 8800's, prices will go down for sure.

So I want like a decent gaming card I am looking at the 7600GT eVGA sells one at 110 or the GS at 90. Should I get one of those the GS so I can save some money for a new card or just spend the money on a GT or just wait with my crappy 7300LE?

I'd say just tough it out with the 7300LE. The R600 should be out within a month or two. Unless you have some money to burn. Granted after you do upgrade to the 8800 or R600 you could sell your current card for 60-70% of what you paid roughly. And if you really wanted a better card for the few months you might as well pay the $20 difference and get the GT.

if i where you i would just live with the 7300 le for a while , then get an 8800 or r600 later i wouldnt bother getting a 7600gt just a few months to then get an 8800 or r600 might as well go straight form 7300le to 8800 or r600

The thing is that the crappy LE takes RAM away, since im buying everthing for my computer including furniture for my room ill may have to stick with it a few months. Dont got that much money to burn since its a new comp dunno I may stick with a 7600GT it would be a huge improvement over my crappy 9600SE.

Since I'm really cheap and don't have lots of money, I would just bear with the 7300LE for now

But yeah, it depends how long and how much gaming you are going to do...I have a 7600GT and it's great for me, I don't really game much and it plays most things out now at a reasonable FPS on reasonably good gfx/resolutions

ATI is coming out with R600, x2800XTX and coming out with cheaper versions such as x2800xt, x2800xL, x2800GTO or is x2900... not sure.

As for Nvdia they know ATI is going to come back. Their going to make a 8900 just slightly better than the 8800 and they are also making a cheaper version 8600.

R600 is also coming out in the late fall this year. Your gonna wait longer than you thought

Default Re: Video Card Q's

from my personal experiance, i'd say don't bother waiting. Some people on here will disagree with that, but oh well. I'm a Nvidia guy, so when i built my system i didn't hesitate to grab an 8800. It has easily been the best purchase i've ever made. well worth the price. Runs all my games on max settings (thats incuding AA with HDR effects which untill this card was impossible if i've been told correctly. I know its not possible on 6200's)

[edit] i should probally change that to "don't bother waiting once you have the money for a DX 10 card". Because i understand what your doing, having done that before as well.

Yeah I think im gonna wait due to money to I would get the 8800GTS but its to much money already. They will go down for sure once ATI launches their card. So the 7600GT best card in the 100-130dlls range?

I would look into getting something like this for $50 more.

EVGA 256-P2-N636-AR GeForce 7950GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130074

Pretty nice performance for the price. It's a bit higher than what you're willing to spend but it's worth it with the mail in rebate. It will last you a long time unless you're just dying for the newer DX10 supported GPU's. If that's the case, I would just stick with what you have and wait out a bit until I can get the new, more expensive high performance video card. The 7300LE should be ok in the meantime because it has 128MB of RAM.
