I asked this over at over clock net and they thought it would be fun in to lock the thread and ban my user.
Anyway I recently got my 604 system back minus the video card. I want to play fallout 3 and maybe new Vegas on the system. I never played the games before and they look really cool and not owning a modern computer levels me at a conundrum.
The system is as fallows.
Asus ntc-d (pcie 1.0)
2 3.8ghz Xeons at 4ghz.
4gb ecc ddr2 3-3-3-12 (@421mhz if my math is right)
Xp_64. (I Hate XP atlest it's 64bit)
Basically I want to get as close to maxing out fallout3 and new vegas as possible at 1600x1200@30fps or better. It sould be doable if not close.
But I'm clueless on the video card, I personally have a few ideas, 8800 ultra, 9800gtx, 260 216core, or some new low end card
I'm thinking the best bet is the 260 216core, but something tells me the 8800 would be better for the system. A newer low end card may have problems with pice 1.0.
