I was going to upgrade my computer with a new video card. When I found the perfect card (refurb X800XL for $120), it sold out a day later. So now my choices are down to a X800GTO
or a 6800XT. Also, are those 2 better than a x1600pro?
Does anyone have some advice on which is a better choice? Thanks!
Yeah, I agree. X800GTO is way better than a 6800XT no matter what the 68's clocks are. Between the X1600 pro and the 6800XT, then it depends on clocks as some have 700 MHz mem some have 1000 MHz mem. Cores vary 75MHz also.
I just bought a Saphire x800gto AGP card that had the 16 pipes already unlocked out of the box. I was nervouse about flashing the BIOS, but there is no need as some cards come with the pipes unlocked now. I think it is a crap shoot though about whether they come unlocked or not. Not sure about that.
