View Full Version : Pixel Shader 3.0
I keeping asking these questions, I know that, and I'm sorry to keep on asking things like this all the time. But, is it that important to have Pixel Shader 3.0 that badly? Or can most new games look very good with out the 3.0 version? Mainly I'm asking because I'm thinking of buying a Sapphire X800GTO2 which does not have Pixel Shader 3.0, but can unlock easily to a X850XT and can overclock afterwards very well. So I need opinions on whether it is necessary or not to have Pixel Shader 3.0
It's not as important as shader model 3. I would go for a nVidia 6600GT or 6800GT. 6600GT is more similar in price to X800GT02.
i have the BFG 6800 gt card.
the card i awsome. it has all the 3.0 stuff.
much better then the ati card.
and you can get a good deal on it.
i paid 300 dollars for my card.
i must have been on some kind of drugs lol.
i dont evem play pc games any more lol
Well.....I think wait a few more months and then spend a little more money to get the next biggest thing. Graphic cards are always being outdone and are getting cheaper all the time. Just wait a little and buy a graphics card with a Pixel shader because down the road a new FPS game you really want will require one and you'll be kicking yourself for not buying one.

Also there is the new Nvidia Graphic cards 8 family that will include the Pixel Shader 4.0.........I heard somewher...check Nvidia's website.
Pixel Shader == Shader Model
So, overall, is it the important to have Pixel Shader 3.0 in your graphics card? Another question, what games is Pixel Shader 3.0 really used in?
Sony's getting serious with their NBA franchise this year, placing SCE Studios San Diego of MLB 08 fame at the helm of NBA '09: The Inside.
WIP - the NBA '09 gamepage is being annoying and not really working. I'll finish this when it decides to start accepting my images again.
Can someone else try to fix the PS3 + PSP version of this game? It's hopeless for me atm.
