PostSubject: New PC   Mon Jul 23, 2007 10:01 am

Hello

Im thinking in buying a new PC for my birthday Very Happy but i dont knwo how to choose Question

I was thinking in a Intel Core Duo 6850, 2 GB RAM and an DX10 Graphic card.

But my big problem is to choose the graphic card. I want one between 100-200 euros.

The new ATI cards like 2600 only have the 256 MB version but i read bad reviews about it. Should i wait for the 512 MB versions? And when it comes out?

Help me pleaseeeeeeee Very Happy

Greetz

E6850 is set to be $266USD, not sure how much that is in Euro. Also you have to consider the 1333MHz FSB on that. So you'll need a mobo that can support the newer P35 chipset. Also it's not even released on the market yet. If you do manage to find it, you're going to pay almost double the "retail" price. I would suggest either an E6700 or a Q6600, this way you won't have to get a high-end board and spend a lot more. Granted you only have the standar 1066MHz FSB, but you won't pay nearly as much.

Go either Mushkin (you'll get bang for your buck), or either OCZ or Corsair.

Good stuff with very good price. You can get higher power RAM, but you'll be paying more. Also unless you plan on overclocking the RAM, most don't come clocked to what they say they are anyway. They are normally clocked at 667, but have been "tested" to be clocked to what they say they are.

NO ATI! Go with NVIDIA. Currently they are on top of the GPU world. Even though the ATI cards are showing benchmarks that are nice looking, their DX10 support is non-existant right now, even on their "DX10 cards".
Honestly, don't get a 256 or 512 card of the DX10 variety. They all clock at GDDR2 as opposed to the standard GDDR3 of most cards.
If you really want the most bang for your buck, get an 8800GTS 320MB and overclock it. That's the absolute best way to get the most MHz per $$ (currently).

ufff....now I need a coffeee Rolling Eyes


Ps.: I have heard that some people works, that XP runs also with Direct X10.
This would be naturally not supported from Microsoft, because they would sell Vista.
If this is true, then I see no reason for me to use XP not further for a while.
And for Mohaa in the version what we are playing, we need it not.

I would say scrap the 8600 and get an 8800GTS instead. You may be paying a bit more, but for the increase in power, it's more than worth the bump in price.

8800GTS only comes in 320 and 640. If you have the extra money to burn, get the 640, if you're trying to save a couple bucks, get the 320.

Don't bother with any 8000 series unless it's an 8800 though. It's a waste of money.
