geforce sucks ::)

Once again, I refer you to the Forum rules about spamming and trying to boost your "post count" by making pointless, irrelevant "no content" postings.

Sorry to bump an oldish topic, but I just wanted to post and say thanks for all the advice people gave me regards GPU's. I've had mine installed about a week now, and it's fantastic. It's a Palit nVidia GeForce 8800GT, 512mb, and it's enabled my pc to run shipsim (and for those interested, Crysis!), on full settings. The game looks much better for it, and I'm still surprised by how much detail there is on the Solent. Had a little problem installing it initially due to my pc not uninstalling the old ATI drivers, but it has overall been a very good learning experience pc-wise. Lots of knowledge gained, and my favourite 'lazy' game now looks fantastic.

Yep, those 8800 cards seem to be the best value for money. I regulalry test video cards and haven't found anything that beats them (8800 GTX being absolute king, but the other versions are all very close. Even the 8600 series are close.

You just have hand it to Nvidia.

Shame about the 9000 series though.

PC Buyer and another PC Mag (might have been PC World) did some comparisons recently and both said 8800 GTX = YIPPEE, best of class, best bang for the bucks, etc. I've not done a direct comparison against the Quadro but if two PC Mags separately come to the same conclusion, I guess I'd spend my money on that basis.

Depends what you want from your card, though. Many people can spend less and get everything they need from their card.

ATI got to do some remarkable stuff to catch up with Nvidia when the trend looks like this vote ;D
88% of the votes are Nvidia. Next situation may be that Nvidia and Intel comes together like AMD and ATI :)

Hello,

I am just posting here to update you with some information. I ran ship Sim on an old laptop with a very low end grafic card. Not really playable but i got by ok.

I now have a new laptop with a GF GM130 (1GB) card in it and the results for a laptop are outstanding. So If your looking to play this on a laptop (Maximum graphic options) check out this card.

Hi, Nick
No wonder, who else will create such topic!  ;D

4. ATI Radion                   >:(

Actually I agree with you on that: I experienced those cards - first one was overheating all the time making impossible to play games, the second went out after a year run, third (same first one) - still getting me mad!
