In Reply to: GeForce FX5900 vs 9600XT! Info please! I'm purchasing soon. posted by Siege
well with the 9600XT the extra 128MB of RAM is basically useless, just because the GPU isn't advanced enough to use all that RAM, basically if you ever got to a point where you needed all that ram, the FPS would be EXTREMELY low due to the fact that the processor cant handle it. As far as the FX5900 goes, in performance it does beat the 9600XT, it usually runs around 10 FPS more than the 9600XT in most cases, but for about 30-40 bucks more i believe. I am strictly an ATI guy, but in the end the choice is yours. I have a ELSA 9600XT 128MB VIVO that I got for around $160, and I run games like Halo at well over 30 FPS and FarCry at around 30 FPS just fine. Keep in mind that movies run at 24-30 FPS, so beyond that you dont really notice a difference. But the FX5900 can handle AA and stuff like that a little better i think.
