My dad told me "Unofficial" (Not sure yet) that I mite give me 90 to 100 Dollors for X-Mas and I wanted to get a newer video card if I didn't get a free one.

So I saw this ad in the Buysell and there was on for the X800GTO Fireblade 256MB PCI-E for 100, but when I phoned him he told me he will cut it down to 90. So I was like I'll think about it etc. So should I get it? does this card only support SH2.0 that limit's me on games?

Yes, that card only supports Shader Model 2.0. That will make it so you cannot enable HDR in many games and some shadowing effects. It will be a huge upgrade over your current card. New on Newegg that card is about $100 and you can get an open box one for $82. That is in USD so that is a good very good deal for 90 CAD.

Answerd by Malaziel:

Last question:
I came from a X1600pro to 6100 Onboard. The X1600Pro only played 800x600 On max settings on Fear so im not sure if this card will do better or will it?

Well if you can find a X1650Pro in the lowermain land in B.C than i'll buy it. I want something better than 6100 onboard since im a gamer

i suggest you get enough money for an 7600GT. it beats the X800Gto, and has SM3, and overclocks like MAD.
