I'm going to upgrade my video card very soon .
The cards I'm interested in are the ati X800Xt , and the nvidea 6800GT .

The choise basicly comes down to :

- a little more FPS with ati X800XT , but without pixel shader 3
or
- a little slower with 6800 GT , but with pixel shader 3 , which is supposed to make the water look "better"

But what does "better" look like ?

So ideally , I would like to compare screenshots of these 4 combinations :
- pixel shader 2 , water=2
- pixel shader 2 , water=3

- pixel shader 3 , water=2
- pixel shader 3 , water=3

It Would be very much appreciated !!!

thanks .

P.S.: I intend to use water=3 only for taking screenshots , not for playing , because it is supposed to be hardly playable

I dont have these cards and noticed it was slipping down the forum so bump. Ask in the comunity help as well someone might be able to help you there too, anyone can help him out with a picture or two?

Go there....that'll show you a comparison picture in Pacific Fighters no less. The Vertex Shaders are part of PS3.0 implementation.

Essentially it creates 3D geometry based on a 2D image or animation.

Keep in mind that the comparably cards are NOT the GT and the XT. If you compared the two it would not be a fair fight.

The comparable cards are:
GeForce 6800GT - ATI X800 Pro
GeForce 6800Ultra - ATI X800XT
