Yes guys forgive my ignorance. I don't know what came over me those cards are actually #1..sorry.
It's just that I'm a rookie at this pc stuff and I also experienced this..it happens to us that are not as elite at this..you guys are awesome
VisionTek - ATI VPU Video Cards
Radeon 9600 XT 128MB
Best Playable IQ Settings
Texture Quality: Medium Quality
Notice that incredible high performance of 35 FPS and the min. of 13 FPS I live to get a card that does that.
How about this one:
"Judging by the rest of your system, you have some money to play with. Check out a GeForce 6800 for ~$300, you're going to be hardpressed to find any cheaper card that can compare on a price / performance ratio.
I've got a Radeon 9800 & Doom 3 is okay, not spectacular by any means, will leave you quite unfulfilled. You most definately do not want to go below this card, don't even consider FX5700's or 9600's."
Notice the INCREDIBLE performance on a year old game with a good graphic engine (Tomb Raider AOD). It's not even good to hold Doom3's coffee cup but it's an example.
There's more but I no longer want to expose my RIDICULOUS stupidity when it comes to this kind of stuff. Sorry for opening my mouth before..I to your vast knowledge.
