I dont get much more differences from my old 9600XT and i just got done playing fear and no you wont be playing it on max settings mostly on medium/low unless you want to play with 800/600 res. HL2 freezes up on me sometimes. BF2 i havnt even tried yet "dont really want to .. figure it will piss me off worse". Well guys do you think i can take this pos back monday and they give me my money back or do they not do that. If i do get my money back im ordering the x800GTO.. FOR THE SAME PRISE I PAID FOR THIS POS. So my opionion is dont go with it. Go to a local PC shop and get them to order one for you. And foreal do any of you have any experience on taking back items to best buy and if so do they give money back?
See? No they won't give you your money back. They give you a store card for the amount you payed. Take your card back and get a 6600GT or a 6800GT or somethin nVidia. You'll get better preformance than you will with that x700.
Oh yea and AOD I don't know... I'm sure that it doesn't matter though, I think it's named the GTP because it's made mainly by Saphire and they will brand it up with whatever they can that's theirs. Google it and check the memory and clock speeds, and if the Best Buy one is better, it better be better by a big amount because mine came with an ATi certified OCing utility. I'm going to try HL2 real soon. I'll come back with specs.
Ahh man tx3 I just realized why you're graphics card isn't giving you anything good! Your processor blows, and so does your ram! The only way you can get good specs with that thing is to have at least a decent processor (maybe a PENtiUM or some form of AMD), and you need some better ram. You say it's ddr200 on your "What's Better?" thread.
