Hello all,<br><br>
I've been looking into buying a new gfx card in the UK for under £100, thus RULING OUT a 7600GT, and I was set on a Leadteck 7600gs for £80 (found on scan.co.uk) when i stumbled upon a Sapphire x1650pro for £90 on dabs.com.<br><br>
Dabs claims that the Sapphire they are selling has 256MB of GDDR3, whereas the one on Scan (for the same price) has a Sapphire x1650pro but has listed the memory as being GDDR2. Could this possibly be a typo on one of the sites? I was under the impression that it was only GDDR2, otherwise I think the Sapphire x1650pro would be the better choice over the Leadteck 7600gs...opinions?

Is there a 7300GT in agp? If so, and it has DDR3 go for that one. It beats a 7600GS when both at stock.

The difference would be unnoticable. I'd pick the X1650 instead, though.

Check the manufacturers website, they should have all the models listed with the correct information.

I can only find a 7300gt with DDR2 where I am...<br><br>
If indeed the site does have a typo, and the Sapphire x1650pro does only have DDR2 memory, would it still perform better than a 7600gs?<br><br>
Edit- Turns out Sapphire do make the same AGP card with DDR2 or DDR3 memory. But the pricing on dabs.com and scan.co.uk don't make sense. One site wants more moola for the DDR2 variety...<br><br>
Damn technology. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gunner2">

x1600 PRO < x1600XT<br />
x1650 PRO = x1600XT OC<br />
x1650 XT == 7600 GS OC<br />
<br />
An x1650 PRO will rival a 7600GS...if you consider the driver differences, it might beat it in some games, and probably will if you enable AA(haha...). GeForce GPUs have always had an edge with no AA though.
