  1. I have GeForce 7300LE and i was wondering if the ATI Radeon XP1600 PRO is better for playing games like FEAR, CARBON and stuff like that?

    The Radeon x1600PRO is a lot better than the GeForce 7300LE.
    This is because the GeForce 7300 is a low-end graphics card, whereas the Radeon x1600 is a mid-range graphics card. Mid-range cards are good if you like to play games, but don't have the cash to burn for a high-end card.

    I didnt look at the name that posted this before I read it. I thought it was another person joking about the answer to your thread, I'd say Geforce if u can stomach the cash for the good cards.

    the drivers for the Geforce will definately be better.

    Only the OpenGL drivers :)

    And the X1600PRO is now considered a low-end card. The new midrange one is the X1650PRO (formerly known as the X1600XT), but a much better card would be a 7600GT.

    mm... i think every x1600 card could be considered midrange, the low end cards are the x1550pro (almost the same as the x1300) and the new x1050.

    Both are Companies that sell and create Video Cards.. Almost equal in performance. Geforce tends to give a better color than ATI. I own both video cards. I like the overclocking features of Geforce you can push it so far before you see problems. If you play a lot of games and want the best there are sites that really test out the performance of these type of cards. If you have the money then you decide? You don' t like what you got take it back and get another one..

    The Radeon would be better. Because its main-stream while the GeForce is dead-end.

    That would be a much better card. It even manages to beat the 7900GS :)

    That is a good deal. Where did you get it at that price? Was it a rebate deal?
