  • Sapphire X1650

    I'm thinking about buying this card, considering its price is just simply a great deal.

    Any thoughts or suggestions for a better bang for my buck in the 50$ range?

      onboard GeForce 6100,256mb ram (uses system ram,btw...),
      rather shitty. Quake's FPS in Qrack ,lowest settings,maxes out at 70-80...

            I've used both an ATI and Geforce, and quite honestly, I can't tell the difference between either. They're both good at what they do.

                ATi isnt as bad as some people would make them out to be, for instance :

                My currenty onboard nvidia would choke trying to run that game , and considering an nvidia product of the calibur of the X1650 from ATi is going to be 20-30 dollars more in price range, the better buy is with ATi (I extensively have been searching newegg for a better bang for my buck,and it isnt gonna happen)

                Once I get a shitload more FPS cranked out of Quake1 , I can find the breaking point of my current internet connection bandwidth,and exploit my ping as much as possible.It's sad that im buying todays hardware to run Quake1 (Qrack) efficiently, even with a AMD Athlon 4200+ Core2 Duo and 1gig of DDR-266 PC2100 memory and a way above average videocard for Quake1's time era vs todays technology (speaking about this onboard video card) , its just sickening,fucking sickening

                  "AMD Athlon 4200+ Core2 Duo"
                  AMD Makes Athlons and Phenoms, Intel makes C2Ds. lol

                  I sense some fanboyism in Y5... ATI does not suck. =O

                  As for this x1650, it will leave any current onboard video in the dust.
