Minimum demands on videocard to play RACE?

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by superpats[RTS], Jan 11, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    I try to find out whats the best minimum graphic card to play Race wtcc. I'm not looking for the most expensive of course but a card to run the game smoothly.
    Please guys tell me what (AGP) card you have.

    I know, the Simbin site recommends a 256mb 3d card, but my granny Ti 4800 256mb doesn't understands the game (a directX problem).

    My system is ,as you can see ,not up-to-date.
    asus a7n8x amd 2200+ 1024mb nVidea 4800 :oops:

    Thanks in advance.
    superpats.

    dont buy the minimum, cards are not that expensive! nvidia 7000s should be good i think for this game. I myself use 7600GT twice in SLI
     
  5. I approve stiggy! Let's buy an Nvidia GeForce 7600Gt for 170 euros!
    Let's just verify that the rest of your system can be support it! :p
     
  6. Hi all,

    As said above, you should be able to get a good 7 series agp card for your system,especially now the geforce 8800 are out. This game is a bit hard on the graphics, i can play gtr2 maxed out but have to lower the graphics down a bit on this game. Still looks unreal tho...... :shock:
     
  7. I'm playing RACE on a nVidia 7600GS... I can play it on full res and full detail... works just fine. But I'm going to get a new graphic card...
     
  8. Hi all,

    for 1 month i played with 4200 ti 8xagp 128mb ram works with
    30 fps now ati 9600 pro 256 mb ram litte bit more on fps
    Both cards have 2 pixelpipelines and the 7600 gt has 12 pipelines
    I plan to buy the 7600 gt

    cheap vga offers http://www.alternate.de/html/productDetails.html?artno=JAGHNA
    139€

    regards myself
     
  9. On what quality can you play RACE with the Nvidia GeForce 7600Gt??
    Because i have the Ati Radeon X800GT (still +-200 euro) and i have to play RACE on Medium quality otherwise i get lags on my screen when i'm driving online... :?

  10. I've got a ATI radion 9800Pro and running on MAX.. without FPS-lagg.
    Maybe its the computer/system setup?

    i play all games at maximum graphic details (if possible i put it even higher, but for now thats not possible) but please note that i dont use one videocard but TWO! I use two 7600GT's in SLI modus. So its not 256MB but 2x256=512MB!
     
  12. SICK :D!!! How much did that cost??
     
  13. That's right.. stiggy is sickky :) ;)

  15. Men, Ati is dead... 8)
    Let's buy for Nvidia but PureOwnange the graphic quality also depends of the rest of your pc! :wink:
    At the worst, let's chose the 8800GT :p (for only 630euros)
     
  16. for that price i buy a 8800 gtx(609€)
    and a GTS for (489€)

    in my new system there will be place for a 8800GTS
     
  17. Looool for ONLY!!!??? 630 euro :D Another Sicko !! :p
     
  18. I use a geforce 7950gx2, and if i play with max settings at 1680x1050 the fps is about 40-70 but can drop down to about 15 especially at somewhere like macau. But drop some settings down to medium, but still at 1680x1050 i get over 100-150, which is what i want playing driving games.. :D . Yet playing GTR2 i can max that game out at 1680x1050 with 35 cars and still get 100 fps which looks amazing.. :shock: . I don't know why RACE is so hard on the graphics when it looks just as good as GTR2... :roll:
     
  19. my system is not up to date so i think i can not play race radeon 9200 series 128MB 512MB Ram and intel 4 2,66GHZ is not enough,or?
     
  20. hmm I think you will be able to play, but maybe not in it's full glory... :) I also don't have a up to date graphic card, but I do can play it well...
