bioshock on a geforce 6 card - anyone tried?
« on: August 31, 2007, 02:43:26 AM »
i'm about to hit the buy now button for Bioshock but i'm wondering how well it will actually play - i know i'll buy it regardless.

anyway, i'll be playing it on a geforce 7800 gtx which i think should be okay but a friend nearby has a geforce 6600; they'd also like to buy it but i have my doubts it will be bearable on such a card.

anyone tried playing it on a lower end graphics card like the 6600?

oh dear.

i've ordered the game now as i'm pretty confident it will play okay on my card - it's about time my friend with the 6600 card upgraded his machine anyway.

fingers crossed that a geforce 8 isn't essential then.  :Thmbsup:

p3lb0x: the 'f' in my name isn't capital, and I only have a 7600... but yeah, you'll hopefully be getting the card in a couple of weeks :Thmbsup:

My computer is awful, at best, for gaming--but I was quite excited to play Bioshock on my 360.  Naturally, though, the system went "red ring of death" the day before the game's release.  I was thrilled.
