The X800XL is very nice, pretty fast, and currently at great prices. But the GF7600GT is better enough to justify the expense, especially with useable SM3.0 features plus FP16 blending for OpenEXR HDR, so they're nice little perks.
Also the chicks love the GF7600GT, all the cool kids are buying them. :twisted:
Thx! Grape had me rolling with his comment, so it was an easy response. Laughter sure is good medicine. Just as when they buy cute chick cars, some male 7600GT owners will take offense to owning a "chick card". Oh well, their problem... Real men have X1800XT's :twisted:
Reply, I'd almost believe it. I know plenty of 40+ year old who still game; some of them daily. People who were kids/teens when arcade/atari/activision/intellivions/vic 20/ c64, etc. came out, got hooked and still see it as enjoyable.
I roll with an x800xl, only paid 140$ Canadian for it brand new, and I was able to push 600/600 and then run 570/570 stable for 15 min before the power connector shorted out (i think my shitty power supply had a hand in that)
550/550 runs stable and is a respectable overclock for a card that starts at what? 430 480? or something.
At any rate, its cheap and actually overclocks better than my friends x800xt
