Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro or XFX GeForce FX 5200

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by HagarTheHorrible, Jul 3, 2006.

  1. The old gap of what I want and what I can afford is now quite apparent when
    looking for an AeroGlass capable AGP Video card. I am currently pondering a
    Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro or XFX GeForce FX 5200. Anyone have any exoerience
    runnine Vista with the Aero feature on either card?

    Don't waste your money for Aero Glass, its a little bit of translucent
    borders... that is it... However either will work.

    If you do want aero glass, at least wait unitl Vista ships....at that time,
    I expect the Video card companies to bring out DX10 cards, so the 6600GT
    should drop under $100, and the 7600Gt might even hit that level.
    I have both of those cards and they are very good cards.

  4. There is a pretty good breakdown of what it takes to run Aero Glass on this
    page:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/windowsvista/evaluate/hardware/vistarpc.mspx
    Check the Premium column for GPU. There are links to five video card
    manufacturers. Each of those links leads to Vista specific web-pages
    including lists of Glass capable cards and current drivers for Vista for
    those cards for each of the companies.

  7. I am running the GeForce FX5200 PCI card with 128 megabytes of RAM and it runs Aero Glass very nicely.

    It's funny how even PCI works with Aero Glass...
