Well, true, in most cases. But I've overclocked.... so yeah. You're right in that sense. But trust me... I've benchmarked my card with my friend's 6600gt bfg card (mine's a sapphire) and I've come out on top with 38 fps in Halo and with 32 fps in halo.

nah the 6600gt will pwn the x700. all the ATI Xxxx series suck except x800+...as for proof look at the benchmarks and such. the 6600gt can sometimes own x800 series so that shows how poor anything below x800 is made
