    The 1800xt is the top of the line vidio card, 3rd best out today, it iis a Exelent preformer, but it carries a price of about 400 dollors

    the x1800xt cannot be compired to the 5200,
    but unless your board has a pci express 16x slot theres no way ypu can use it unless you upgrade your board to one with a pci express 16x slot

    you will be able to play any game on exrta high setting with that card :knock: :knock:

    It's a good card. I'd be happy to take it off your hands. :) According to Vigilante's profile, his system has an AGP slot. He can't use it. And swker98 doesn't even have a motherboard at the moment. I, on the other hand, have a motherboard with a PCI-E slot. :haha:
