    I have a 128MB Rad9800Pro, and I didn't see any FPS change with full AF, but it went doooown with the lowest possible AA (now I've got full AF and no AA and runs good for my tastes). :/

    Otherwise I run on 1024x768 and Holy Sh*t settings...

          take it from someone who made he exact same jump just 1 month ago.. you will not regret that move :up:

          benchmarks state a more or less 80% boost in frame rates.. and they arent joking, just remember to remove your drivers beforehand

          6600GT for t3h win!

                Thats fine if you are willing to risk a 15day refurbished item warranty

                the new pny I listed above has 1+2*year warr. once registered.

                I personally dont give a rip for PNY- but thats the best NEW 6600GT deal out there.
                I personally would pay $20-30 more for a 3yr* warranty and dual dvi myself...

                  hmm, kinda sucks you didnt get a PCI-E motherboard, means you'll have to upgrade that again when u next upgrade ur graphics card :\
                  Don't knock OEM - heck OEM wd 8mb cache hard drives have 3yr warranty while the retail only have 1yr.,
                  -the real issue is that thing is a refurb with only 15day warranty-refurb is the problem..
                  and that is too bad he invested in an AGP mobo in an effort to reuse his old 9600... but since he just got a new mobo and cpu I dont think hell be going PCI-e anythime soon ...
                  is too bad manufacturers didnt make some way for boards to have both AGP and PCI-E slots. probably because noobs would try to use both at same time for "1337 spEEd!!1"

                    FYI- Newegg lists ALL their REFURBISHED items as OEM, even if they are retail, just in case the manual or a cable is missing, or box is damaged- that way they cant be held liable.

                    and I re-itterate- best card for the $$$ right now :

                        no big deal, I was just letting you and everyone else know the info.

                        -and I think we have all come to the conclusion that the 6600gt is the way to go, the only issue is refurb or new.
                        So unless someone has any negative information to dispute the 6600GT as a good recomendation, or has found a better price than I did for new, I think this thread is about done till vrxGz comes back and lest us know his decision between refurb and new.

                          Virax, what resolution, number of bots, and mutators? With 0 bots, 1024x768x16, the settings you posted (except Reduce Mouselag off), UTComp 1.6 (or 1.6a or something), No Adrenaline, I was getting 65-250FPS, with an average of around 85. A64 Winchester S939 3000+ (@2.2GHz), ATI R9600 Pro (at AGP4x, no less!), 1GB DDR400 CAS2.5 RAM.

                            16bit color? LOL! I am sure he's running 32bit color like most everyone else does.
                            I didn't think anyone ran games at 16bit color anymore.
                            And your 9600 pro is definitley faster than his plain 9600. - over 40% faster as seen here:
                            http://graphics.tomshardware.com/gra...charts-05.html
                            -and AGP4x vs AGP8x is nominal to +/- 2fps. Thats assuming his 8x card is even actually running in 8x mode...

                            ps- he STILL hasn't even told us what video resolution he's playing in. For all we know hes trying to do 1280x1024 or higher

                              I was at 1152x864x32, and also using UTComp 1.6a and 0 bots. Not like UTComp affects framerates, though.

                                peterbi: As it turns out, I get the same framerates at 1024x768x32 as I do on 1024x768x16, so the former it is.

                                Virax: Ah. At 1152x864x32 I get about 40-320 FPS (looked at a different wall this time ), and that extra few FPS is probably owing to the extra 200MHz on my CPU.
