Hello again. I have a lingering question. How does the graphics processing power on the x850xt compare to the ATI chipset found in the Xbox 360? I have one of the Sapphire x850 XT AGP's on a P4 3.0E HT on an i865PE with 1 gig of Patriot Dual Channel memory. My friend who is a ultra-hardcore-360-junkie tells me that my graphics whip the hell out of his Xbox 360. We have compared the computer side by side to the Xbox 360 with Need for Speed Most Wanted, Need 4 Speed Carbon, and Prey. On all games for the PC, the graphics are TOTALLY MAXED OUT at 1024x768 with 4x AA. Prey and Need 4 Speed Most Wanted run smooth as glass. Need 4 Speed Carbon tends to stutter a little sometimes, as I could use another Gig of system Ram. I have to admit, the Xbox 360 does look nice, as the GPU for it runs at 500mhz and it has a triple core 3.2 ghz cpu. The geometry of the 3d rendering is also nice. I don't think the Xbox 360 can keep up in shader detail and framerates, but we have no way to benchmark the Xbox 360, and if you mess with the internals the Xbox 360 will commit suicide to keep it from being hacked. (Microsoft hates modifiers and hackers just like Hitler hated Jews)( a friend installed a cooling tower to her Xbox 360 and it killed itself like a soldier refusing to give secrets to the enemy!!!) But now there is Gears of War for the Xbox 360, and boy does it look nice. I cant wait till Gears of War comes out for PC, but I wonder if my system can handle it. Here is the link for my motherboard, check it out and tell me what ya think. http://epox.com/USA/product.asp?id=EP-4PDA5plus Here is my memory, tell me what ya think. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820220037 Here are the main Questions: How does my Sapphire x850xt compare to the Xbox 360's GPU? How does my system compare to the Xbox 360? Should I be able to smoothen out Need 4 Speed Carbon with another Gig of Ram? Should I be able to run Gears of War when it comes out for PC?
