The most expensive one I have seen here in the UK is the X1800XT from ATI. That was around £500.
Yeah... I must admitt I've never seen a graphics card higher then about 600 or 700 Euros... So a 1500 Bucks pricetag is a little high in my eyes...
But it'll definitely be worth it
Worth it? It wants to get out the box and install itself, then when it's done, go and make me a cup of tea and roll me a big spliff!!
$1500...not on your nelly. Won't even pay £500 for the X1800XT.
I am building a new comp in January and the whole thing will cost me around £1000 and that is with 64-bit AMD, 256MB PCI-E 6800 GT card, 2 GB RAM
200-odd Gig HD etc etc.
I admit the card is probably one of the most important bits for gamers, but what is the REAL
difference between one that costs £300 and one
that costs £1500? An extra 5 FPS (considering that you already get 50+FPS and you really only need 24 FPS to simulate real movement)?
Only for those overclocker geek's who cream over a negligable increse in frame rate or a slightly better benchmark score than there just as nerdy
Nah, not a chance mate! Better things to spend my cash on, like the games themselves!
