The X800GTO, Should I get it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright, for Christmas my grandparents bought me some shiny new RAM. I bought my self some better cooling, and then OC'ed my processor a little bit, and now I think the only upgrade left is a *****in Video Card. I've lost all hope for nVidia, seeing as how they're totally abandoning AGP. I basically don't have the money to upgrade to PCI-e right now, but when I do, I'll be switching to AMD and all that stuff too so it'll be pretty expensive. I was searching around newegg for a card that was AGP, 256-bit Mem interface, 256 Megs of Memory, and under 200 dollars. So I found the X800GTO (Sapphire).
It looks about perfect to me. The only other competitor would be the 6600GT (I'm not buying the crappy Apollo 6800) and it IS significantly cheaper. So I was just wondering if I could get some unbiased opinions about what to choose. Well, maybe not unbiased since I'm on an ATI board lol, but yeah, I think the X800 would really pull my system together, what'dya think?

That would be an excellent upgrade. People have also been able to unlock its extra 4 pipes. IMO its the best bang for your buck agp card out there.
