I was wondering what is the difference between the..

ATI RADEON X1600 PRO PCI-E 512
AND
SAP RADEON X1600 PRO PCI-E 512

The reason i ask i found a big price difference on these two, and im not sure as to why.
Seems the same to me except the price.

No difference at all, they're literally very likely the exact same hardware made at the same factory.

The difference is probably in the warranty, you might want to look into that.

yeah!

since its a saphire card and not made by another company such as asus or evga both cards most likey made at the same place. go with the cheaper one if its got a warranty.

are these cards both at the same store/web site?

Alright thanks guys,

No not from same place, sapphire i get from work for like 140 CAD, and the ati version i get from someone who works at ati who supposedly gets half price, but he must be trying to rip me off..lol

Yeah, the only reason y the ati is more expensive, is becuase, well, its an ATi card not a 3rd party manufaturer, ATi has a 1 year warranty, and i don't know what Sapphires policy is. Also, half price ATi name brand 1600pro 512 is 149CAD

wow im not sure what the exchange rate is but what is 149 CAD in US dollars?

i bought my x1600PRO 512mb AGP from PC CLUB (a pc store) and i payed 149.99 USD.

I'd guess around $130 USD.

140.00 CAD= 127.168 USD

The reason I get for cheap is because i work at a fairly large computer wholesale company.
