    Default Review My New Video Card!

    Well I broke the cardinal rule of shopping I bought on impulse. Long story short my computer’s hard drive died a few weeks back and while I was in the store I asked about video cards as I have been wanting to add one.

    So this is what I bought…

    Nvidia GeForce FX 5500

    -Memory: 256 DDR
    -Core Clock: 270MHz
    -Vertices/Sec: 67.5 million

    General Info
    -Up to 4 pixels per clock rendering engine
    -Up to 16 textures per pass
    -Digital Vibrance Control 3.0
    -Microsoft DirectX 9.0 with Vertex Shader 2.0 and Pixel Shader 2.0
    -NVIDIA CineFX Engine

    I paid about 90 dollars for this and got free installation/drivers and all that.

    So is this a good card for a good price or did Ol’ Olorin get screwed?

    $90 for a low model 6000 series would have been a better deal. But, if that does what you want it to do, or more, then who gives a fuck what others think?

    The computer was in for repair anyway. Why should I do it myself when he would do it for me?

    Ya should have done my homework, live and learn. However the only video game I play is Civ IV so it works well with that, and that is all I really wanted it to do.

    Notice how we only picked up like four new people? I imagine this place was a gigantic circle jerk before we fixed it.

    There was no "this place" before. Phrack completely annihilated our old boards, but only copied your boards to create this place. So we have no place else to go, you can go bitch at your own wannabe karate kid forum which still exists. So kiss my fucking ass, and enjoy my titanic reduction to your worthless rep.
