6600gt Agp Vs Fx5900 Ultra Agp
 
Hey guys,

What would be the better card? A XFX 6600GT 128MB or a PNY FX5900 256MB ULTRA? Both AGP cards. I'm debating on which one to buy. I play Half Life 2 and CS:Source.

The 6600gt for sure.

Neither - go with a 6800 non-ultra 128 MB. They're not much more money than the 6600 GT and blow both cards out of the water.

Something like this? It's just a bit more than a 6600gt.

"Pros: very good card for the money.mine came with 16 pipes and 6 shaders right out of the box."

Looks nice, one person says it shipped with lower memory though. I don't know...

Since some people are getting 16 pipes out of the box I almost wonder if Apollo is getting nVidia's reject cores and just slapping them onto boards.
haha it acualy seems like that everyone seems to be getting something different, its like a suprise :-p

To be perfectly honest, if you're playing those games, you're best bet would be an ATI card. An X700 Pro is in the same price range as the 6600GT, or spend a tad more for the X800GTO AGP.

I've been all about nVidia lately, but you just have to be realistic. Get the best bang for the buck in your pricerange for the games that you want to play.

acauly the 6600GT out performs the x700 in hl, and it rivals the x800gto, i would just stick with the 6600gT

nvm that but its close

Not true. Let's take the closest benchmarks we can. In this test:
http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/07/...vii/page7.html

We'll use the X800 Pro (which is on par with the X800GTO) versus the 6600GT.

Half-Life 2 1024x768:
X800 Pro - 76.3
6600GT - 73.2

1280x1024:
X800Pro - 74.2
6600GT - 61.1

1024x768 4xAA 8xAF:
X800Pro - 75.1
600GT - 56.5

1280x1024 4xAA 8xAF:
X800Pro - 63.9
6600GT - 31.4

1600x1200 4xAA 8xAF:
X800Pro - 53.5
6600GT - 18.4

The 6600GT is nowhere near the X800GTO in Half-Life 2. If you only play these games, get an ATI card.

Get the 6600GT.....because one day, you might actually want to play something other than HL2 and CS:S. I know it sounds crazy, but for the price of that 6800 with the Ultra Cooler, you could probably find a 6800GT on eBay. You might have to spend a couple more dollars, but the 6800GT would blow you away.

FYI: When I had my 6600GT, I ran the stress test on CS:S at 1280x1024 with high settings (no AA and maybe 8xAF) and I believe I pulled around 90+fps. That was with a P4 2.8. the 6600Gt would serve you quite well for those games.
