Which do you prefer,

x800 GTO 1(or2)
or X1600pro ,

People keep talking about the GTO and GTO 2 x800
but the x1600pro seems to have the same amount of pipes (12) and
a much higher clock speed and memory speed. Prices are similar
So i'm stuck on which to choose , please indulge

By the way , I've checked like 15 different X1600pro cards but neither seem
to support a memory bus of 256mb, only 128 ... why would this be ?

SM 3.0 is Shader Model 3.0, which you need for DX9.0c . It makes games run nicer, and will become a standard sometime in the near future.

The GTO1 can be flashed to a x800xl or a x850xt depending on which core you get, r430 and r480 respectively. The r480 will be able to overclock the core speed alot further.

Just a side note, my x800gt is currently running a modded x850xtpe bios with speeds of 535/560 from 475/490, and stock cooling. No pipes unlocked though, still at 8/6.
