X800gto Or X800gt02 ???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a decent price graphics card. I just moved from AGP to PCI-E a nd had a 7800gs. It was a pretty spendy card abot $320. I have heard that these GTO cards are pretty darn good as you can unlock the pipelines for a performance increase.

Do you have to unlock them to do that? How do you unlock them?

Is one of these cards (GTO / GTO2) superior to the other?

What card would they equal once unlocked and overclocked?

Thanks!

It isnt even a contest. The x800gto is a good card but cannot unlock anything. Get the x800gto2 which will flash 99% of the time to a x850xtpe, a very good card.

Good luck.

The 7800GS hasn't even been out for 3 weeks... why did you buy it and then immediatly switch to PCI-e?
