Default Re: which video card...?

if i were you, i would save up a little more and get a x800XL or x800 Pro. The x800 pro should be around 250ish.

yes the x800XL will be a very big difference from the x800 and the x800 pro will be a difference too. I would get the x800XL.

I dunno.... I did research and comparisons... not THAT much...

just 8 mhz faster and 16 pipelines... and it demands more wattage. More ram of course, but still. For $100 less, don't you think the x800 would suffice?

well....the memory on the XL runs 280 mhz faster than the x800. And plus, 4 pipe lines is a lot. It like the 6800nu to the 6800GT fast clock speeds and more pipelines in the GT.

Well, it's either that card, the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102529
or these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121121
but as of I already have some good speakers, I went with this. My x300 really sucks.

Yeah, that's what I'm doing. I just hope that my 300W ps will support it. It should, but yeah. System unstability is a bad thing.
