I was thinking of getting a Nvidia 9500gt but will that be good enough. thx
Firstly there is no such game as call of duty 6, I take it you mean COD5 and secondly the 9500gt is not a gaming card. The 9500gt is suited to web surfing and media playback.
What res is your display. You really want to be spending around £100 if you want a half decent gaming card. An ATI 4850 would be ideal.
Dam i did here call of duty 6 (when released) is based on a true story
Is it not called Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2?
Play.com (UK) : Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 : PlayStation3 - Free Delivery
What card for call of duty 12?
ati 4850 or if you can get a decent priced (2nd hand?) 9800GTX+, still got plenty of oomph
you don't need a graphics card for that, you need a Playstation3
You can buy them PS3 consoles at Toys"R"Us
But the PS3 has a graphics card.
Technically there's no game called Call Of Duty 5 either, as officially world at war wasn't numbered.
Maybe they're taking the numbers out of the games now and just focusing on what theatre of war the game is set within, with a name to reflect that?
yes a crap one
The PS3 has an Nvidia chip which is based on one of their older GPU's (i think the 6800/7800 series)
While the PS3 stands still tech wise (and PCs keep geting better) game devs do manage to squeeze more and more out of these older chips since they get more time to work with them.
Which is why you can see the same sort of graphics from a PS3 as from a 9800 or even 200 series GPU.
To be hones these newer GPUs from Nvidia dont make any major changes over the older chips.
Yes, they are smaller in die size and therefore run faster giving you more frames per second, but they dont offer anything new graphics wise over older cards.
Whats really important is what level of DX they support. Older chips are DX9, newer ones are DX10. But till they start supporting DX11, we wont see any real improvements.
So, any card (even an older one) that supports DX9 or DX10 will be enough for any new game.
I myself am sticking to my 8800GTX's (which are DX10 cards) till a propper DX11 card comes out.
Now, COD. If that game requires a DX11 card, then wait for those to come out.
If not then any card available now will work.
You dont need the latest 295GTX or the AMD equivalent to play the game.
What does matter is how high your monitor resolution is.
The problem im seeing these days with a lot of devs is that they are choosing to develop for consoles rather than PCs now because theres more money in it.
PC gamers end up geting bad ports on the PC of what is basically a PS3 or Xbox 360 game. If we have high end equipment its such a waste.
And if the games run badly on the PC, its not coz we need new cards, its because the games arent being optimized for the PC properly.
(and therefore run badly)
I think they do this on purpose to make us think that we need to get a new card just to run this game (which is really designed to run on much older hardware)
This is the reason I will never buy another Ghost Recon game, and im worried the COD devs are heading the same way.
The guys (DICE) behind the Battlefield series are also heading in that direction.
I use to have 2 of them running sli
Also DICE = Lazy Amateurs in a mans world not a stickle brick world = the easy way out..
COD 6 has been anounced for release this year, IW are doing it, so technically the OP has a valid Question
I'd assume the latest GFX cards out now, will be just fine for when it's released
Ive decided to get a 9800gtx+ will it be good enough and will it be hd so should I get a blu-ray player?
for cod yes HD yes you can run hd films through it ..
Accelerate x.264 1080p movies over the GPU Guide
player used in article..
Media Player Classic Home Cinema (GPU accelerated) download from Guru3D.com
you can also use powerdvd (you may get this with card), there are others out there but do not spring to mind at moment..
I was thinking of getting the 4850 for this. Is it really good enough for new games?
only 9 more months, nothing else to look forward to really, except for tales of valor
Excuse me but I do believe you need to get your eyes tested .......
