Returning my x1600 pro gift

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello, I received a ATI Radeon X1600 pro for agp 8x/4x
happy to see a nice 512mb gfx card but as far as I have read its not
as cracked up to be. Im deciding I should return it the receipt is $194
and that is my budget. The store will only give store credit for it, and they only supply ATI cards, and these Maddog(?) cards. (its an AAFES store)

If I go, what should I look for?
thanks in advance..


edit- heck include nvidia cards too, never know if they'll have them

its a military store, so its well know by civies
its like a walmart, without sale taxes

edit, I may have some willing to my store credit for money
what would be the "biggest bang for my buck" for less than 200

Your AAFES sels gfx cards? damn lol

I would think that the 7600GS would be the only thing to compare to it for around 180 bucks in AGP. The only thing that would be better in AGP is probably 7800GS or X1950pro both with a nice price tag

x1950 pro should be about $240 for AGP version, but they wont be out in the USA for a few more weeks i believe.

I don't think it's worth returning the x1600 if you are still on AGP, it's a decent card.

X1650Pro
BFG 7800GS
7600GT
Any of these will bring you gaming goodness at 1024x768 resolution. Will also play at 1280x960 but you will have to cool down on FSAA and AF and other 3D juicy options

Yes they are out and much faster then the 7800 GS, bit pricey but its the fastest you can get on AGP excluding the extremely rare Gainward 7900 512mb AGP card.

The X1650 Pro is a nice performance boost over the X1600 Pro, GDDR3 memory and a faster core clock, even with 256mb it'll be much faster. Its also roughly the same price.
