Default Re: why do fx cards perform so badly in 3dmark05

If you can wait, get a 6600GT AGP. OR, wait for the 6700 series. There is also the possibilty of getting a 6200 and soft modding it to a 6600. There was an article on the front page.
Have you seen some of the benchmarks for Doom 3? 5900 vs 9800?

It's a pretty dang good tie, with the 5900 pulling ahead in some lower resolution, and the 9800 comming ahead with the eye candy
