Hey there.

As you can see I have my good ol' trusty Radeon 9700Pro. I'm wondering wheter it's a good idea to upgrade it to a X800Pro or if I should stay with it for another 8-10 months before considering and upgrade. Of course, options would be limited because most new high end cards are PCIe only :S What do you guys think?

I wouldnt wait 10 months... I would get it now if you have the money.

BFG 6800GT OC
or X800Pro

Both great cards, you would be happy either way, but I rather the 6800GT just because it offers Soooo much for the money.

if going x800pro make sure its a VIVO, very high chance of it modding to XT, any questions about the mod process check out my guide

Ain't the X850 PCI-e only? I wonder if there are PCI-e to AGP convertors... do I bet the added latency would probably kill the card's performance. Oh well, it's a nice concept idea.

Hehehe, I know a lot of people recomend the nVidia 6800GT, but I'm and ATI whore, hehehe. It's a fact it may perform better, but I'm loyal to the company that saw me get my first 3D card (a good old Rage 128)


If the X800Pro is not a VIVO, what would be the chances of it being modded to an XT?
