I found this X1800GTO. It's priced lower than most 7600GT's and all X1650XT's, and I'm pretty sure it beats both of them in most benchmarks. I swear, it was $155 a week ago.

That's what was in my system that I had to pay to send back to sapphire after it kept freezing up whenever it had to work (WOW / 3DMark05). I NEVER got in further than 30s in WOW nor past the green light through the forest in 3DMark05. It runs quickly when it works (37-42fps for the shootout segment at the start of 3Dmark05) but does not finish the job and does not allow playing games. Sapphire's tech was not too helpful and I have to pay the shipping to get the card fixed (& bought an nVidia card as I would not go 1 month without my comp waiting for Sapphire (and I could not ethically sell it to an unsuspecting sucker on eBay knowing that it is problematic). So what I'm saying is if you get it, make sure you have a backup PCI-E card.

True, it's not a night and day difference, but it is a bit faster in most games. Definitely enough to justify buying it at $130. The thing I like about the card is that it has a 256-bit bus. If it can be overclocked a little it should easily beat the 7600GT.

lol I love the reviews on newegg.

Especially that guy compairing it with the 7900gt, which looks like its twice the price.

I'd be mad too if my $230-$250 card ran as slow as a $130 priced one.

Read the reviews on the Sapphire X1650XT. You'll die laughing.

That was a fanboi for sure. Avoid ATI, my 7900GT gets higher scores in 3dmark03 :roll:
