NOOOOOO!!!! Your card cant touch a 9600 being that its integrated. I already answered this question for you. I said go with an x-800gto. It will be a huge jump over integrated. Also stop multi-posting and mulit-threading. Read this and learn. ' ">http://www.3davenue.com/1401.html

yeah, the x800GTO is awesome. Plays HL2 perfectly. It also is cabable with a sempron to run doom 3 1280x1024 Ultra 4xAA.

The x1800XT is probably the best possible card you can buy....when it comes out. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

I think he's referring to the X800XT, which is a very good card. Look at my sig. /biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

Never mind.

Go with the X1800 XT if you have the cash. You're going to have to wait a bit for it though.

not only are you going to wait, but you are also going to need a lot of cash because the initial price should be around 600 bucks.... depending on which model.

Why gallian? Crossfire is better than sli. It has much more functionality.

Don't tell him to get a 7800GT if he can afford the X1800XT. The card itself is better, and CrossFire is faster than SLI. If he was looking into saving money, then sure...But obviously, he is not.

Gosh, stop bickering everyone.

He's getting dual x1800xt's. Thus, the thread has been resolved.

Oh damm - this must be the biggest ATi fanboy lineup ever, even if nVidia so clearly has better card now

7800gt cost less and is a huge overklokker - better value than x1800xl

7800gtx is by far better than x1800xl and cost the same


7800gtx 512 ( 600 - 1800!!that will be in stores before x1800xt will take the thrown easy and that before they even made the release of it

x800gto - gt though is good value for money, but 6800gs is worth tho take a look at to, though its cost more

Edit: and crossfire havent even been testet out by public yet, still you guys yell out that its better, how on earth would you know, cause ati tells you? , well nvidia has much of the samme yadayada bullshitt comercial going on on their homepage to, but that dont make it completly true does it?

X1800XT is best you can possibly get right now. That is that.
