  • Radeon 3000 Series

    Does anybody have one of these.

    I have been thinking about getting one for my Christmas present. Anandtech says they perform much better than the 8600 GTS. Toms hardware says about 60% better and it is about the same or cheaper.

    Currently I have a 3700 athlon something and 2 gig memory so Getting a superduper card would be a waste for the foreseeable future. Plus I am not completely unhappy with what I get out of my 6800 GS so this step up would be more than enough for awhile.

    But I would like to know if anybody has other opinions based on experiance.

    I have a 2900 but I have read a lot about the 300 series. They look like incredible cards for the money. Definitely not a bad purchase.

      If you can get the 3870 thats the best Performance/Price card available, more so than the nvidia 8800GT 512. But with your current setup your bottleneck will be ur CPU.


      Wait and save, nvidia is releasing its new chipset/video cards in January/February (So i've read rumors)

      The new Chipset will take use of Intels new 45nm Processors, and the New 9 series Video cards will be just as fast as a 8800 Series in SLI (Real ruff estimates/rumors).

        Yea, I won't be able to upgrade the rest of the system for about 6 months or even a year. Baby is due Jan 8th and $200 is the hard budget limit.

        Do you think the stuff coming out in jan/feb will be less than $200?

          The mid range stuff will almost certainly be but I doubt that will be out in January. Usually the expensive enthusiast level parts come out a few months before the budget stuff.
