Which one should I keep (ATI Cards)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hopfully tomorrow I will receive a video card that I thought I wouldn't be getting but now I'm told it should be delivered Jan.2/06, here's my delima, the card I'm getting delivered (hopfully tomorrow) is a ATI x850xt 256 , I did pick up a ATI AIW x800xl 256 on Boxing day thinking I wouldn't be getting the x850xt, I do have a ATI R/C Pro Tuner card. So my question is this, I know the x850xt has a faster core & has VIVO other than that is the AIW with FM as well is the tuner card & x850xt setup pretty much the same as the AIW x800xl card??????
I have to return one of them, cuz I'm not rich & don't own 2 computers.
So Like which one should I keep????? The difference in money is the x850xt is $25.00 more. I play Call of Duty 2 A LOT

If you are going to be gaming then you for sure want the X850XT. But if you are doing general computing and you like all of the functions of the AIW then that is the one to keep. The performance will be noticeable in the benchmarks, but real world performance differences are minimal.
