post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just ordered my Sapphire x800 GTO, and 2 days later i saw this for $10 more... seems pretty cheap to me, i think i may trade this in for it.

Yes the X850XT will be a very good card and performs better than the GTO and is currently One of the best cards for AGP

Before you do that, you should see if your GTO unlocks to 16/6, and save yourself a restocking fee (depends).

Yes..can be dodgy though as these days th extra pipes to be unlocked can be defective and lead to Artifacts and screen corruption..But i would advise getting the X850 anyway all in all its a better card.

Iv already checked, it doesnt . I am having a problem though, not sure if its video card or what but lets say im watching a movie, off dvd or even one thats on the comp, it will move, then stop and move again through the whole thing. It even does this in games, like in bf2 i will move, it will move me back then forward again. Though the game could be from my internet.

Thats called LAG LOL its either your graphics card drivers need replacing or you need some Video codecs..When it comes to games it may lag if you are playing online

Well before you do that use a program called driver cleaner to clean all the old uninstalled ATI files of your computer before installing the Omega's

The cooler on the X850 XT will do alot better with its speeds and 16pipes then the X800 GTO cooler too.

$210 X850 XT retail is the best deal for PCIe right now, high end performance for mid range price.
