$200-$230 video card (X800GTO2?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need to order a video card in the $200-230 price range. I was thinking about getting the SAPPHIRE Radeon X800GTO2 because it really can do a lot for you for only $220. I really need the best I can get for that money. This card seems good, since it is like 99% guaranteed that you will be able to get it to an x850xt pe. This is true right? And cooling wont be a problem right? Anyone have any past experience with one? Is this card my best choice? Thanks!!!

YES YES YES!! Get that card! as far as I know, it has a 100% unlock rate, so you can get all 16 pipes! I think thats the best you can get as far as price/performance. Excelleny choice

I dont think there are problems with the cooling, not from what I've heard. if there ever was, I think they use a thermal pad that isnt very good, just replace it with AS5 and you'd be golden. I have an x800xt pe, and I was thinking of switching too.

Also, as much as I hate to be the bringer of bad news especially when I dont agree with it... We're not supposed to have anything in our sig's about reps.. Mods dont like it I guess.

Thanks a lot! And I deleted my signature thanks for that too. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get it now.

This is definitely a great buy!!!

I was just reading about this card a few minutes ago. Make ABSOLUTELY sure that it's the Sapphire X800 GTO2!!

If it is, all the pixel pipes are unlockable.
