Wow...i just ran a 1505 with 3dmark 03 with the fx5200 256mb card i have now

Man idk...you guys are telling me to go with the geforce6800 gt but then in the computer shopper magazine all the testing they did ati came out on top for all of it. x800 xl was one that stood out the most.

Usuaully the big companies pay them to put them on the top. Geforce 6800 hands down, chosen by the minorities But just make sure you have a big power supply.

I'd agree go geforce. However i've never used ATI. Either one can handle FEAR

jorfee, u said u have a geforce fx 5200 and fear runs crappy...but u should have seen it coming when that card is below all the cards that the game supports...lol im not bustin cuz i have the same card and i can't upgrade cuz stupid dell has there power supplies custom made so u can't buy antying bigger than 250 W and that's not enough to support a geforce 6600 or 6800.
