    Ok here's the deal, i need to make comparison between old cards with new drivers . Can u lend me ur cards for a few days or a week ?

    Y i want to do this :

    well the thing is , some people dont play all the new games , they only play wow, starcraft . so those people just need the old cards , the most basic card .

    and if they look online to see wat other games they can play with that card , they will find 2 year old reviews . i would like to remedy this situation, and make a one stop comparison for those few . they can look at it and say this card is better than this . now many reviews dont compare HD2600xt to some other older cards . thats y i want to do this

    Cards Required :

    Nvidia -> 7800GT to 8600GTS

    ATI -> X1650XT to HD2600XT

    I'll pay the shipping .


    You will not get ripped off.

    Cards Tested :
    7800GTX, thanks to Bogmali on TPU
    x1950XT, thanks to Dr. Dr. Spankenstein on TPU
    7600 GT
    7900GT , thanks to Clipperfix on Anandtech for donating this ( didn't work , 3d is busted )
    8600GTS

    Intel Q9450 || GIGABYTE EX-38 DS4 || GeIL 4GB 800Mhz DDR2 (2x2GB) || Corsair TX650 ( Ultra 600W Pro as backup ) || Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music || WD 640AAKS 640GB

    I can send you an 8600GTS but that's the only card on your list we still make.

    It would also be interesting to see the same card improve over a long period of time by updating drivers only.
     
    [I.R.A]_FBi and DonInKansas say thanks.

    Well...once my GTX260 shows up I may be willing to send ya my x1950xtx...it's gotta custom BIOS, custom fan profiles, vGPU increased to allow for OC, right now at about 720, memory at 1080 (dunno why, but the gDDR4 on this board doesn't like going further w/o way more voltage...and in RaBiT...ya can't increase the vMem, so I didn't worry too much). It's got an AC S1 Cooler w/Turbo Module, MX-2 applied...I thought the card was going south...turned out to be a driver issue lol! Oh well GTX will be here by the end of the week, so the damage is done!

    I'll keep ya posted about the xtx though if you're interested! It'll be my backup card, but it can take a beating! :toast:

    I have a 1950XT that currently is collecting dust. It's still got a Tyee block strapped to it though...I'll dig for the IceQ3 cooler, if you're interested.

    Great little card that hasn't seen action in a while...

    This is by no means me giving it away (yet) but would you be interested in a HD2900XT 1Gb?

    Pretty much. IIRC, they both have 256bus and GDDR4.

    ...but I've been wrong before.:eek:

    1950XT has GDDR3 not GDDR4, but that's the only difference, for all intents and purposes the 1950XT and 1950XTX are the same deal. Same GPU core, bus width, everything, and when I bought mine the price difference was far too much to warrant GDDR4.
