I currently have an ATI radeon All in wonder 9600XT (128mb ddr, Agp8x) and can get a Sapphire radeon X1600 (512mb ddr, Agp8x) for about $200 CDN, but i have to know, does anyone know if it would be worth the upgrade? im not stupid, and i know 512mb is a lot more than 128, but im not sure if it would be worth the trouble. if it helps, heres my basic pc stats
mobo: ASUS Via K8T800
CPU: AMD athlon 64 3700+
RAM: 1 GB DDR-400 (2x512)
(note: i dont really use any of the All in wonder features, and would not miss them much if i was to upgrade)
Wow, are you dense or just forgetfull? Read the first post in this thread, the guy wants to know if it's "worth the upgrade". This means a cost/benefit analysis. The benefit being improved game performance. So now he has to know how much better the new card would be than his current card. And the best way for him to know that is to see some performance numbers.
How about this, first off, everyone is saying that 512 isn't gonna be worth it, so i figure hes not gonna go for it, the X1600Pro 256 mb is as low as 96, just to be clear. Now , no one ever said anything about an x1600xt being agp, you just brought up an x1600xt pci-e , so i just said that they get as low as 130 with a 20 $ rebate. and as for the whole benchmark thing, I've owned the 9600XT AIW, the X1600Pro and an X1600XT
