ok right now i eitehr wanna get a 6800GS or some Ati card in the area of $160 with better preformance, i looked at the X1600, doesnt look too great

i also wanna do dual GPU so if u pick the X850XT plx find the crossfire edition since i cant find an X850 series crossfire

also when you use dual GPU's in crossfire can u run like a X850 with an X1600? or do they have to be an X850XT and X850

More about : 6800gs ati card

X800GTO compares to a 6800GS. I wouldn't consider the X1600. Also, don't think you can run X1600 with X850 in Crossfire.

ok would 2 X800 series beat 2 6800GS's?

yah i didnt think i could run an X800 with an X1600 or anyother series besides X800

6800GS PCI-e and X800XL are very close. But for the OP, the best pci-e card for $160 is the X850XT, which clearly beats these other two.

I also say forget dual GPU. He can buy a single 7900GT or X1800XT 256MB for $300...cheaper than dual X850XT.
