Default Tooth and nail video card battle (put yer shades on)





Yes the 5200 is mine... and I'll tell you what stinks... gainward duped one of their non-tier one distros (the vibe with the reps I spoke to dang near sounds like it is a mistake that they're all laughing about)... (one guy thought he was buying 14 GFFX5200U's from Compugate... i pity him)...

I'm ups'ing this card back to them as soon as I fully observe all this card has to offer(painfully), in some sort of review-ish format (painfully)...

wait, I dunno if it's even worth a review...

For the record:

XP2000+ @ 133fsb
GA-7VTXE+ kt266a mobo
512mb DDR @ PC2100 (one stick samsung pc2700, one stick Buffalo PC2100)
Temps: 48idle, 53loaded down...

Right before I sold my ti4200 (and thus had to run a gf2ti for a couple days... a card I for some reason always have liked), I culled some benchies from it as well... and they were all normal, but not too impressive @9.8k 3dmarks... The hd's not loaded down... it only has winxp, via 440's, unreal warfare engine games/demos, and nvidia drivers on it...

All driver installs/uninstalls went fine... and the system runs very smooth...

BUT WHAT A POOPY VIDCARD... for *anyone* at this price...

This 5200 will benifit someone else other than me... maybe...

That's pretty sad, even for a $79 card.

GF2ti set to Quality... no af/aa

GFFX set to performance... no af/aa

I don't get the single texturing score at all. That doesn't add up at all... The multi-texturing rate is almost spot on though.

GF2ti @ perf... @ 300/480...

Single tex: 412.7
MultiTex: 785.2

2yr old thumps the new baby...

Well, I now have a credit with the place I bought it from... and I had extra $ anyway for a newer vidcard...

So I guess tonite I'll compile as much info as possible, to save and remember how pitiful this card was at the beginning of it's shelf life...

am i right in understanding per that pick that you could not run game test 4 with your 5200 ?

thats odd considering it is supposed to be a dx9 card and a dx9 test...

care to elaborate ?

I didn't run nature on that set of tests... It was terrible anyway...
Like 17-24fps...

In my current personal areas of interest, nature scores do not fit in...

btw here's a situation where they did, on the 4200, right before I removed it...
