why the FUCk did you buy an X800 then buy a 6800!!!!!! chirst you must either be rich, have rich parents, had a dud card which you traded or are just plain lying. thats like 700-1000 dollars(depending on modles) on cards! besides there really isnt gonna be a massive difference in the 2

whish i could say i had either. 9600XT for me. works good, some lag in a few areas but not horrible. MP seems to run faster though

I could see how you could afford it, but why would you waste your money like that? They are almost identical.

I'd be willing to take that crappy old Radeon X800 Pro off your hands. Free of charge even!

NVidia GeForce FX 5500. Decent card. I play in 800x600, medium detail and the game looks and plays great.

MSI Radeon 9600TX (slightly overclocked 9500pro)

It's not really a current card anymore but it still runs Medium fine.

GeForce 3 Ti 200 64 MB

Runs very playably except during the room to room swap sessions. Btw, as an aside for those running low quality mode. Try upping your image_downSizeLimit to 512. You won't get much of a performence hit as the bulk of the textures in the game are 256x256 anyway and you'll get some added detail in things like menu graphics and skins.

I traded the X800 Pro back to the store and paid the difference between it and a 6800 Ultra. The reason why I took the X800 back was because ATI really pissed me off. It took them too long to fix their drivers for the games that I play, and by the time they did it was too little, too late (and still not a 100% fixed on some). I got sick of it, and the fact that their X800 XT's (their fastest card) are nowhere in site. Last I heard, the XT's were recalled. I said fuck that shit, and went back to Nvidia.

I am not rich, but I make enough to afford my own place with some change. If it makes you feel any better, the card I had right before my X800 Pro/6800 Ultra was a GeForce 3 Ti 500.

well that makes more sence!
yea i will admit i havnt been impressed by ATI. the support i think does suck. however most games are still in windows which make is an alright company. but if you have noticed i am not a big windows user. right now doom III and SH3 are the ONLY reasons i still have windows 2000. I run XP on my laptop which is mainly for internet use when i am away or at school.

sadly i played alot of ET, however in linux i had better preformance on my geforce 4 MX-440 than my ATI9600XT

also to note. our work has not recieved a single X800 card, but we have a few 6800GT's and standard 6800's

I bought a Radeon 9600 SE w/ 128 MB .. which sucked balls, so I returned it and got a 9600 w/ 256 MB instead. $70 CA more, and it's better than the crippled 9600 SE.

It seems most people here either have a really, really good card .. or a pile of crap on a stick. Just play Doom 3 on the computers at your local PC shop, guys .. they won't mind ;P
