Hi guys :)

I'm planning an upgrade for my aged system and strongly think about ATI4850HD GFX card, it's a great video card especially for it's cost, however I would like to know if you guys that are already ATI users have some issues with this game because of it.

 

Thx in advance.

The only nagging "constant" that I'm aware of with Radeon cards in all the TW series, has been the shadow bug. I do not know if this was corrected in the 2, 3, and 4 series, as it was still present on the X1K series.

Uh... which bug is that?

 

As the name implies, it effects how shadows are rendered by Radeon cards. In extreme cases, shadows radiate out from the model, like spikes. In mild cases (such as on my X800XL), they appear to be disassociated from the model, depending on the view angle.

 

Perform a search on 'Radeon Shadows' here, and at Third Wire's site, and you'll see what I mean.

Happened with my laptop's X1400 (the best one offered by Dell that time), that is why I removed the shadows in my games.

First thx for the input, I'll go for Radeon 4850HD then, I've read some reviews it seems that thing is sweeping the competition...

 

@viperBAT32 - Radeon9550 is very old card in aGP version only, I doubt you can even install it on your computer. It's super cheap theese days and people usually use it for cheap office computers.

 

I had R9550XT several years ago, it was a pretty good card for it's price back then, but today it's totally obsolete...
