HIS X850XT IceQ II and X1900 AIW

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Because I am running low on money, I had to go a little cheaper with the graphics card for now. I bought a HIS X850XT 256MB PCIe graphics card with the IceQ II cooler on it. I hope this graphics card is pretty good. I got it for $112. That's a little less then NewEgg's open box price of $130. Hopefully it gets here sometime next week.

Any feedback on this decision is wanted. I need to know if I did make a mistake or not. I was also looking at a X1900 AIW. I might still buy that and use that instead. I need to know which one to keep. Ohh and is $165-170 good for a X1900 AIW???

The x850xt is still a great card, with my system at 4.5ghz and the card overclocked it would run FEAR just fine, pops a AM3 score of 98,000, 3D-01 34,000, 3D-05 score of 7500, but Im sure the 1900AIW would be better overall. As is, you still cant beat the price/performance ratio of the x850xt.
