Seems pretty reasonable, although I am getting out of touch with the newer graphics cards...

Anyone know how this card compares to my current one (Radeon X800 GTO16). I'd ideally like to get a newer card that gives me better framerates for games like Oblivion, Stalker, Dark Messiah, etc, but is also DirectX 10 compliant for the inevitable time when I have to change OS to Vista, (not that I want to mind.....)

If this card is a bit hopeless, can anyone suggest a reasonably priced card that might soup-up my machine a bit?

8400GS cards should be DX10 compliant

Stick with the X800 over this. To get a card with better performance you'll need to look at an X1950Pro (if you can find one still), or a 7900n. If you want an 8-series, the 8600GT is slightly slower in places than the 7900. I'm not sure where the ATi 2xxx series fits in now, but I imagine it'll be similar to previously with the low-end 2300&2400, mid-range 2600&2700 and enthusiast 2800&2900. So again, you'll be looking towards a 2600.

These cards are good for HTPC, but not gaming. End of this month and beginning of the next AMD and Nvidia are releasing a wider range of higher-middle range cards which might push down the 8600GT/HD2600XT prices down.

This card won't do much good for you, as it is very slow, testing at about half to a third the speed of the 8600GT in this benchmark.

Depending on your budget, the £70 8600GT might be ideal for you. I have one myself, and it's good enough to run the likes of Oblivion and Bioshock very smoothly at 1440*900, and STALKER reasonably smoothly at the same resolution. Haven't played Dark Messiah with it, but it hasn't struggled with any of the games I've played on it, so it should be good for you. The next step up from that is the 320MB 8800GT, which is hundred pounds more expensive but about double the speed. Personally, I'd say that if you can cope with what you';ve got for another couple of months, do so, as the next generation will be out in November, and nVidia's second-gen products are always a good deal better than their first-gen line.

What about the 8600GTS?

Cheers for the advice guys - much appreciated ! :thumbsup:

I had an idea that this might be a bit underpowered, but since I got my x800, the cards have really moved on - I think my card may be 3 or 4 generations old now (or more). As such, I had no idea where my existing card sits with more recent technology (i.e. was todays low end tech still superior to my old card, for example). :thinking:

Looking around, I think I might get an x1950 pro. Overclockers currently have one on sale for about £70. As I tend to stick with the same manufacturer for graphics and processors whenever possible, this looks pretty attractive to me.

Although the card is not DX10 capable, I think it might do me well until the cost of half-decent DX10 cards come down a bit / they improve Vista to the point where the OS doesn't hamstring game performance.

On second thoughts - the 8600 looks good as well.

Aaargh - choices, choices...!

Bad card for the price, too expensive. I'd advise waiting as Nvidia are bringing out 8800GT's soon, which will push down the prices of the 8600GT's etc and the 8800GTS 320MB, which is probably the best card around for the price point.

Have ended up going for a 8600GT from amazon, (listed on HUKD about 2 hours after this thread started). Now all I've got to do is wait 4-6 weeks for it to arrive, as it went out of stock as I was ordering.

Knowing my luck, it'll probably be totally obsolete by the time it arrives on my doorstep! Oh well - time will tell.

Thanks again to everyone who provided advice !

They are now showing 448 in stock... but at £29.99 plus carriage... which is of course free on orders over £49.99.
