Did any ATI cards of that time have crazy coolers?
I have the one with the 3 fans.
with ATI at the time, they didnt need Crazy Coolers. Most Popular Cooler was the AC VGA Silencer 3
holy shit , i didnt know that that sort of things require 3 fans for cooling
I have a BFG 5900 128 and it has a crazy cooler like that too. It worked damn good in the day though, mine never went over 50*c.
they had to do something while getting stomped by the 9700s and 9800s ?(¿)?
i remember red geforces.
Would be cool if we had a crazy heatsink thread
Those were the days
I saw a 5950 Ultra on ebay awile ago with a mad looking heatsink on it, sorta looked like the Green Gigabyte one, i wanted it couse it looked so kool, but they wanted way to much for it =/
$100+ im sure, if not closer to $200
If you could OC them good enough and there stable they can beat a 9600GT, in performance.
My bullshit detector is going off with such magnificence that it is overpowering the Sun in brightness.
DAM thats insane if you can get it to perform as well as a 9600GT, considering its AGP....
Something tells me i should of got it instead of the FX 5700 =/
You cant. Believe me. I maxed out the OC on my 5900 and I only scored 2K in 3dmark05 and could barely run Doom3 above 30FPS. Get a 9800 pro and you will be happier.
AGP has nothing to do with it.
the 5950 couldnt outdo a 7800.
9600GT as in nvidia's or ati's
hah never thought of that
Ok, gosh. I was just seeing if someone would believe me. I didn't know I would have the whole forum coming down on me.D
I thought he was talking about nvidia's to begin with I nearly shit my pants.
Edit: I shit my pants
lol, thats a good point he probably meant ATI's, and I guess that would be true. Because at that time 9800's owned the market and even Nvidias top card would have probably been a better match for the mid range ATI cards.
I was meaning a Nvidia 9600GT....
Hell it wont out perform the ATI 9600XT! ATI waxed them it that series.
I was kidding!
As stated above ... i shat my pants.
Yea ok fair enough, thats why i was like WTF? thats insane, but yea ok thanks for that.
I bought the FX5700 ages ago as a cheap upgrade to my dads comp at the time so i can game on it more, it had to be under $100. This was yrs ago.
But AGP is slower Thats if he is talking about a 9600GT Nvidia???
Yea id agree with you there if it couldnt out perform a 7800.
nvidias top card at the time couldnt even outdo a 9700PRO.
kinda like an 8800ULTRA vs 3870 lol.
Separate names with a comma.
