Hello Fellaz I just want to know what do you think about this grafic card
wait, this one?
Nope, thats the V8 Duo... I just want to know about the V8 One.
This is the card....
Very Diferent from the one you told.
Maybe if you'd show us some info about it, reviews, benchmarks? Never heared of it, so I can't judge it right now. :/
But I want to know from someone that already got one.
By the way where did you buy that monster (That pc with that specs) ?...
it had good potential but its two years old, and even when it came out it had LOTS of driver problems i.e. the hardware is there, but software isnt't simply because xgi hasn't been producing top of the line cards (they have since stopped again) i wouldn't buy this card unless you have a very specific reason...
But you can read now that they (XGI) have new drivers and they have compatibility with BF2 and other games.
I built it myself. Took some time to save up for.
If you're American http://www.newegg.com is a very reliable and usually one of the cheapest.
I wouldn't know anyone with an XGI Volari V8 but here's an article.
Though, what I saw from that article I'd buy an nVidia or an ATi graphics card.
Nobody has even heard of this card - funny. Since the video CPU is not ATI/NVidia or Intel/VIA/SiS, I would be very worried about what kind of drivers come with the card.
How Much It Costs?
My rig? It cost me 2100 euro's. That's about $2500 I believe.
Holy God... no coments
yea, but its still two years old... and kinda of expensive comparably to ati and nvidia cards (at least on ebay)
I decided to buy this one, "POWERCOLOR R43CA-GD3D Radeon X800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16"
GPU Radeon X800GT
Core clock 475MHz
Memory Clock 980MHz
Memory Size 256MB
Memory Interface 256-bit
Memory Type GDDR3
DirectX DirectX 9
OpenGL OpenGL 2.0
Interface PCI Express x16
TV-Out S-Video/Composite Out
RAMDAC 400 MHz
Max Resolution 2048x1536@85Hz
It's ok for the price ^_^U $165.00
not to be a spoilsport, but you did check that your motherboard supports PCIExpress right? because the previous card you showed was AGP, AGP and PCIExpress are only BOTH supported on something like three motherboards, most it's either PCIExpress OR AGP.
Well, I had thought to buy a whole new computer then i just changed the entire specs of my pc and now all except for the AMD Athlon 64 3700+ is different.
The comment of a guy made me change my opinion about AGP Video cards, they are quite old, and now I bought an MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX with a POWERCOLOR R43CA-GD3D Radeon X800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express video card and a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor as the base of my pc.
Maybe you should go with a brand other then Powercolor. It's a bit unknown, BFG, Saphire or Asus are usually very good brands, and usually get more juice out of the card.
Its an ATI GPU, I know the powercolor brand
Its ok - the dual fan one is much better though.
what?, dual fan ? what r u talking about?... you really are in the middle of nowhere, jejeje... naaa, just kidding, now we r talking about the Powercolor ATI X800GT, the one with the two fans is the Volari V8
good choice, i think that best way to go is with ATI or nVidia because that's what like 99.9% of gamers use and that's what the developers make their games for. you never see a little movie when loading a game that says: "XGI... the way its meant to be." or "XGI optimized" or some crap like that, it usually has nvidia or ATI logos because they are pretty much the only two u need to know.
p.s. i just got the A64 3700+ too and i love it, it's just amazing!
