grafix cards seem to be the only thing about a computer i have so much trouble understanding lol i know what it does etc but my problem lies in identifying how good a card is. At first i thought it wos just how much memory it had (128mb, 256mb) but now i see that it mainly involves its core speed and memory speed. Im planning on buying a good card soon so i scanned that newegg to see what they had to offer, and i hit anotehr problem lol can someone please explain this. I came across a card i though would be great, check it out # HIS Hightech 96XTP-1H-ZPC Radeon 9600XT 256MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card - OEM (limit 2 per customer) Accessories: Manual, 5 CD, 2 Cable, DVI to D-Sub Adapter Core clock: 500MHz D-SUB: 1 DirectX: DirectX 9 DVI: 1 Max Resolution: 2048x1536 Memory Clock: 650MHz Memory Interface: 128-bit OpenGL: OpenGL 2.0 TV-Out: S-Video/Composite Out # Model #: 96XTP-1H-ZPC # Item #: N82E16814161113R This card is $132 (bout £70 for me ) i kept going on and came across this card # POWERCOLOR XR98T-D3 Radeon 9800XT 256MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card - OEM (limit 2 per customer) Core clock: 412MHz D-SUB: 1 DirectX: DirectX 9 DVI: 1 Memory Clock: 730MHz Memory Interface: 256-bit OpenGL: OpenGL 2.0 PixelPipelines: 8 TV-Out: S-Video Out VIVO: No # Model #: XR98T-D3 # Item #: N82E16814131231R This card wos $256 But is seems to have lower core and only a bit more memory (well 80) I then recall going on to see more expensive cards with 300- core (although i think they had more memory) Is it a matter of balanceing the 2 out? Is memory more important than core? I;d like to understand all this so i dont end up buying a crappy card lol thanx P.S. Does anyone know if newegg deliver to UK as well?
