I finally received my video card in the mail but not what I ordered. I originally ordered a x1650 pro ddr2 512mb. But in the mail I received a HD2600 pro ddr2 256mb. I was just wondering if I should keep this "wrong" card or send back for the x1650 pro. I know neither is the best card, but this is what I have to work with right now. Thanks.

keep the wrong card. They should perform relatively close but I think 2600pro is a little better.

yeah I have not found much either, but looks like the 2600 is better. Everything is always tested in DDR3....so night and day difference.

Is this the AGP version? If so, you might consider returning it, if you want a bit of a simpler time with getting it to work properly...I find that ATI doesn't detect them properly quite yet, so you have to use manufacturer's drivers (at least with Visiontek), and while Visiontek put Catalyst 7.10 out only a couple days behind ATI, it's still an annoying feature.

If that doesn't bother you, or you think it will be fixed (I'm sure hoping so!), then keep the 2600, definitely.

Send it back and demand a better one because they screwed up the delivery. Kidding. Keep it it'll be a bit better then a x1650

thanks for the replies....will definitely keep it then. Ilander, it is the PCI-express version, so hopefully no install problems. Looking forward to it. And here is hoping I can run Oblivion better than with my integrated graphics.

Will run soooooo much better.

Man. Integrated graphics. Have you ever had distant land turned on?

I noticed a jump in Oblivion from an X800GTO (it's recommended card when it came out) to my HD 2600XT DDR4, so I imagine you will be pleased with your results.
