whats the difference

Recommended Posts

in some games i notices that in the graphics area of the system requirements that it would say it reccomends lets say a geforce 3 series. well i also noticed that there are they geforce 6 through 9 series then theres something called the GTX200 series and then theres the FX series. whats the comparison between these you know like, a 3 series is the same as an fx 5300 or something. i would like to know because i was thinking about buying this graphics card and i was wondering if its junk or good. im not like a hardcore call of duty 4 gamer but i just want something good but still cheap. :cr@sh:

the graphics crad i want: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814131014

Well, the FX5500 is like 6 years old. The GTX series is Nvidias newest cards and they are FAST.




Now, whats your system specs? You listed an AGP card? Im thinking its pretty old, and as a hard core gamer, that FX5500 wont play the game nicely at all. Whats your system specs and we can help you out more.

i was looking at the graphics card and one of the reviews said that i would need a 300w power supply. since this doesnt seem to be avoidable is there any reccomendations for one of them? i was thinking maybe this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817374002 or maybe this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817163012 i like the price of the second one but does that mean it has a lesser quality?

and how do i know this stuff will fit? i noticed in the first ones reviews that it was too small for some peoples computers. hold up, lemme measure mine.....(about 2 minutes later) well from the back of my cpu to where it ends its about 5 1/2 inches and from one side to the other where it ends its about 6 inches. my cpu is roughlt 7 inches wide and 17 inches long. so will it fit?

Nice avatar.


You were trying to get a server PSU. What you want is something cheap and powerful. But in ATX form. LINK.



The price keeps changing. there were times where this was $30 for it before a rebate. But its a solid PSU.



Cowboy, that avatar loooks familiar. :lol:
