Good upgrade for my current setup? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: January 24, 2006 5:20 PM in Graphics & Displays Share kmano8 January 24, 2006 3:23:06 PM Here is my current setup: P4 3.0ghz Prescott 1gb DDR Corsair XMS ATI x300se What card should I get to open up the bottleneck I have with the x300? I was thinking either an x800GTO, x1600xt, 6800GS. I am a moderate gamer... CS:S, farcry, aoe3. However, I do some video encoding that strains the system quite a bit... I thought the x1600 might be good for this. What would work well?

Drivers aren't quite solid yet, IMHO. For under $150 the X800 GTO 128mb is the best bet by far. If you're hitting about $200 the 6800 GS and X800 XL are both good buys. the X800 XL is better stock, and the 6800 GS is a better choice for an overclocker. But if video encoding is a bigger priority than gaming for you, the 1600 wouldnt be a bad choice too. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
