Hey guys, last week I was asking what card I should get for my old setup. I was recommended a HD2600XT becaus I didnt have that much to spend and my I only had a dual core cpu and not a low psu.
Today I saw a second hand X1650 Pro 512MB for the same money as a new HD2600XT 256MB.
So my question: which one is better when it comes to gaming? I know the HD2600xt is newer but I dont know how much the 256 makes a difference and if there are any other things involved.
(I got a 650W psu now so thats not a problem anymore)
However if you got a 650 Watt PSU I would spend the cash and hunt for something even stronger. Like an Nvidia GTS250 or an ATI HD4850 or 70. Hold back a month if you have to in order to get the cash. These cards are worth every penny.
