There is someone on the forum that usually checks company details, can't remember who though.

You could probably just remove the fan...

That would be the mod team... of which I am a part.:p

How will this fair if I run racing games? Like GTR2

I'd rather have a X700 in a laptop than the Inttegrated graphics that most laptops have.

I'd spend a little more and get a graphics card that's completely passive. It's easy to do with these entry cards as they don't product as much heat so are quite common. It's become a big selling feature for media PCs and such.

I use a passive 7300GT myself. I don't really play games apart from a couple of old ones but I didn't want to limit my self to a section of Motherboards with on-board graphics, either. And use up system RAM.

This is probably faster than my 6800NU I bought some years ago for £160!!
#13
I would honestly pay the £8.50 more and get this

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/140262

Its 55nm based, the X700 is a whopping 130nm based. That means much more heat, noise and electricity use in the X700.

not at all lol the 6800 would destroy the x700

I think with a 64bit interface with DDR2 this would be deemed a very low end card but for the price ... It will play the games stated but yes at very low settings

hell FSX is a massivly graphics intensive game dual 4870's struggle to play it everything maxed but again is very scaleable so yeh lowest settings will work just not look very nice...

You may want to check the companys reviews before using them it looks dire: http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/online-shops/autdirect-co-uk/reviews/

voted cold because of the reviews above and you can buy a HD 2400 which is 10x better for £17.99 Delivered at Play.com

They're based in Shoebury, Essex and when I lived in that area I used them all the time. Very helpful and cheap on prices...can't comment on mail order though.

It's not quite that simple, although the X700 is 110nm based (not 130nm, that's the X800) it only has 110 million transistors putting out heat instead of the 181 million of the 3450.

I would agree that it's a better idea generally to go for a more modern card such as the 3450 or 2400 since they have numerous improvements like HDCP (required for playing for blu-ray movies), UVD (helps take the load off your CPU when playing video) and they'll often by dual-DVI which is preferable if you do want it for dual-monitor support.
#22
can this play crysis?
#23
With 128MB DDR only, you can't expect too much from it. But, it might be slightly better than HD3450 cos it comes with 128bit memory bandwidth.
#24
This is a very old card. This graphics card came before the mighty nvidia 6600gt/6800 and ATi x800 series.

This graphics card (x700) won't run any recent games decently unless you like to watch slideshows.
On some older games you can probably get away with running at 1024*768 with medium setting
#25
Modern integrated graphics such as the intel 4500 or ATI 2300 series will outperform this comfortably. Although this is a cheap way to get dual monitor support should you require it.

My laptop has the mobility versions of this, in 2005/2006 it was a good card especially for a laptop but dont expect it to play many new games, it did play the recent Tomb Raider game fine. If your just looking for a cheap card not for any demanding stuff I don’t think you can really go wrong.

However I would spend a couple of £ and get a Radion 3450 this card supports HDCP, Shade model 4, Direct X 10.1, audio over hdmi and can help in decoding Blueray movies... useful for an older pc. As its just got a heatsink and no fan it will be perfect for a Media Centre build :thumbsup:

hehe :-D

anyway, I know when i build an uber cheap system its sometime handy to find THE lowest price for things like this, its gonna be better than inbuilt graphics :)

This is only true if your buying very old boards for your builds. The latest Nvidia, ATI and even Intel IGPs will best the performance of this card in any modern applications.

In 3d Mark06, whilst only a synthetic benchmark, the Intel 4500 and ATI 3200 will out-perform this by 50% or more. It gives you an idea of how things have moved on, that a mid-range card from 2-3 years ago is out-performed by an integrated solution.

Only worth buying if you want to upgrade a very old system or need dual monitor support, and having said that, I've ordered one to do just that.

*sigh* This is advertised as a cheap card. No one is expecting to be able to play Crysis with it or anything.....
#31
AUT have been around for donkeys years doing end of line stuff etc. They used to advertise in Micromart
Always got good service last time i used them about 7-8 years ago
