High-middle-low end video card benchmarks

This ones pretty cool and looks liek it would of taken FOREVER to finish. List of whats on offer--

Quote:

Mainstream/Entry-Level Class

* ATI Radeon X1600 XT
* ATI Radeon X1600 Pro
* Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT
* Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS


We ran the tests in the following contemporary games:

* Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
* Half-Life 2: Episode One
* Hitman: Blood Money
* Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends
* Prey
* Titan Quest
* Tomb Raider: Legend


Heres an example of one game with the benchmarks are cut into 3 seperate sections. You'll also notice in the middle of the bar is another number. This represents the lowest frame rate you should get if you have the graphics settings as they do with the same cpu, that being youghly a 2.6gig intel in power since this is a AMD FX-60.


High end




Middle range



You're either poor or stupid





Anyway, I think its an excellent page with alot of info. Super duper trooper.

I'm actually not super picky when it comes to resolution.

I run my GeForce 7600 GT at 1024x768 with nice results.

Thats the card I'm getting so when my PC is built I'll show some screen shots of it in action. Now as for the charts, I'm having trouble making them out. What separates the mid-range and low-end? Since the cards are the same.

None of the cards are the same in the seperate sections.

And yeah, 1024x768 is what I usually use aswell. Except for 2D or isometric games which I slap up higher to get that crisp look.

I'm leaning towards a 7900 if I get a gaming machine. I just want to know what 7900 is best or the best value. There are so many of them (some of which are OCs at the factory).

Reality, you're getting the 7900GT. Technically its a midrange card now, but powerful enough to handle almost anything. The 7900GTX is the godly card, but its also an extra $100-150 more. No point in getting that when the 7900GT is brilliant and DX10 cards come out it...uh...ROUGHLY 6months at best. Though I dont plan on grabbing one for another year. Cause that means grabbing vista. And I'm too slack for that.

Pricewise you can get the 7900GT for a pretty lovely amount

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127218

Thats the best priced one I can find thats not overclocked, but also not stock speed either. Your general 7900GT is usually core clocked at 470. The overclocked ones are something like 540 or whatever. This precious lovely is at 500, as you can see in the specs below. Also with the mail in rebate you can get this baby for $239. Pretty awesome if you ask me. And MSI is a top class brand at that.
