Thats right Why is my HD2600XT faster than my 4650?
U ran the windows index score the 4650 scored lower but, numbers aren't everything. My next steap was to run a game benchmark i chose GTAIV. the 4650 scored 3 less frame with 1 extra setting turned down as compared to the same bench mark on the 2600xt. that setting being water wich i turned from medium o nthe 2600 to low on the 4650 and it still scored lower.

Man i tell i have nack for buying good video cards where the 4650 was free i did have to toss it in the oven. I bought that 2600XT in 07 if remember right maybe 08. and my friend got the Diamond 4650 1gb this year.

MY 2600XT 512mb

is the 4650 worth a wooden nickle? I usually buy gfx cards every once in while cause i usually buy the beefed up cards and they tend to last me. the RX2600XT even plays gta4 smoother not bad i'll keep it for at least a little while i used to play crysis and bio shock on it okay.

Try something other then GTA IV because its a very bad game to test GPUs. Use something like 3D Mark and you should have a small idea of the performance. HD 4650 should be a lot faster though because it has 320SP vs 120SP but it can be a DDR2 version which really kills performance and he XT could be GDDR3 or GDDR4.
