Not trying to start a war, but whats better ?

#1
Getting ready to update my system ! I have it down to two cards !

NVIDIA GeForce™ FX 5700 Ultra 128MB 8x AGP w/DVI & S-Video

and

ATI RADEON™ 9600 PRO 128MB 8x AGP w/DVI & S-Video !

They are both about the same price, but of the two whats better ?

Thanks !! :cool:

boy, that's really a close one. they're just about identical, performance-wise. maybe the 5700ultra is 1-2% faster overall, but not enough to make up your mind.

i say go with which brand (ati or nvidia) you prefer.

lol, give the FX ago, its about time someone said something good about nvidia....

I have 1 good comment, 'GeForce' sounds way better than 'Radeon' :D

Go for the Radeon, it's 20 to 30% in DirectX 9.0 games. Especially using PS 2.0.

THe Radeon has a better designed GPU.

I'd go for the Radeon....

flip a coin :)

seriously speaking though I would probably still recommend the radeon since its raw performance with shaders is faster than the 5700ultra... however the performance is so close its a toss-up...

both are definitely superior to the 5600ultra however...

if you have a lesser powered psu though... the 9600pro is a better buy since it does not require an external power source...

IRT Topic:

The nVidia shaders have taken a huge blow lately. Have fun with an ATi I say.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
