for below i can get:

- x850xt
- 7600gt
- x1600xt
- x1800gto

i play games like BF2, gonna play BF2142, maybe oblivion and counter strike source, i know all 4 of them will run CS:S at full graphics with no problem, but my concern is about the other games, i do know that the x850xt packs more brute power, but its "old" technology, im runnin a 9600xt 128mb right now, so its pretty much a toss up between the 7600gt, x1600xt and x1800gto, because i know any one of those will blow me out of the water (compared to my 9600xt), which one is better? and why?

X1800GTO will generallyout perform the rest.

i was looking at specs, why would it be better, the 7600gt runs at a higher clock speed, only pro i see is the 256-bit interface and 512-bit ring bus.

well a few reasons. 1 clock speed doesnt mean everything. Statistically speaking a 7900GTX would beat the X1900XT, literally it doesnt.

So first. the X1800GTO can be unlocked and OC'ed to X1800XT/XL which is equvilant to a 7900GT

second more pixel pipes. (i think...maybe thats the XT, too lazy to look :)  )

thrid the X1800GTO can run HDR and AA, better image quality

the x1800gto has 12 pipelines, i forgot that its ati, so i can run AA + HDR, thanks for reminding me, lets say i cant afford that one, between the x1600xt and 7600gt which one is better?

At stock, the 7600GT is actually better. But the X1800GTO overclocks probably best from that list.

Well. its not better. the X1800GTO shares blows with the 7600GT. But once overclocked the 7600GT is no match

The unlock rate for the GTO is suprisingly not high....

Both cards oc very well. So really, its almost like GW said that one time, pick your favorite color :lol:  :lol:

what will be the power difference between a 7600gt and x850xt?
