Is this a good card?

Will the 512MB make me feel a difference in gaming?

Edit: I would think initially 'yes', because it seems now that games care more about vid cards than they do processors. Keep in mind I'm building a sempron machine that I plan to OC to about 2.2 or 2.3 I hope.

looks pretty nice to me... i would probably trade my x850xt for one to try it out ( bought my card on newegg... exact same price.)

That gpu cooler is monstrous. You might need a second case for that!

The x800 XL 512 MB outperforms the 256 MB 7800 GTX in some games. I would highly reccomend it for the price.
edit: and its HSF is just an aluminum VF700 (it maybe alcu, or cu, but im pretty sure it's just al).

There is no al, its either alcu or cu. Anyways In most games that card is either 1-2FPS ahead or as much as 3-5FPS behind a 256MB X800XL. However, in CoD2, BF2 and F.E.A.R. it is able in some cases to beat the 256MB 7800GTX, I think it is worth it for that price, but when i got my card, mine was $295 and that was $399 so that is why I personally didn't buy one

Ha the 512mb x800xl cost 9 bucks more than what I paid for my x800xl like 5 months ago. Thank god it isn't even really much better than the normal x800xl.
