Which video card is better?


#1

- GeForce PCX 8400 GS/ SE 512MB (128 BITS) DDRII

- GeForce PCX 8500GT 512 MB (128 BITs) DDRII

Which one is better from the above options?


#2

both are 512MB from same manufacturer Nvidia ,DDRII so whats big deal?


#3

8500 GT i believe is better.


#4

8400GS is better then 8500GT because it supports the the Turbo Cache and other thing is that 8400 supports Direct X 10 while 8500 does not support direct x 10 coz it was the first one in 8000 series. and in 8600 they supported the direct x 10 and 8400 was introduced after the 8600 thats y it is built on same architecture but with limited speed and same options.


#5

^Afaik 8500gt does support Dx 10.

Well 8500 gt is just slightly better then 8400gs,but both cards are pure #$%# if you want to do gaming.

There is much more to a card then this.Core Clock,Memory Clock,Steam Processors etc etc are much more important.

Both 8400 and 8500 gt are #$%#.They only dodge people in to buying them by putting more memory in to them.

Memory only contributes 1% of how a card performs

PS:Didnt realised language is censored here:P

evil_dust>>the 8500gt will be slightly better...but it is like asking which model of mehran is better... the vx or vxr (answer:they both suck)

i suggest the 8600gt and remember to get the ddr 3 version,

mostly ddr 2 version of cards will not give u good performance ..in gaming ie,,,if u just want to make graphics better then they r ok

I want to gift it my little cousin, he's just a kid

He would be happy playing off games like San Andreas or NFS Carbon

So,

Will 8500GT, give awesome graphics with these games?

As these games only require 128 MB of Graphic Card

not awesome but good playable graphics

Why not awesome?

Rockstar Games recommend a GeForce 6 Series Card for Playing San andreas

So, why won’t a 8500 GT 512 MB, Give awesome graphics?


#11

Both cards suck.

Anyway what's the price of 8600gt ddr3?
