    Well, since this thread is revived, I've since upgraded my X800XT PE in my self-built to an X1900XTX. I didn't include my two older PCs before. My middle aged Dell has a Radeon 9700 Pro and my old, old 98se Dell machine has a Radeon 9200.

    Hey mailpup,

    Is there any good difference between a X800XT PE, to a X850XT PE?

    Just wondering, 'cause I plan to get a x850XT, and overclock it to PE speeds (of course, using the ATI silencer 5).

    I remember you asked me about the silencer, something about the power connector. I don't know yet, because it hasn't arrived yet... (paid via money order...)

    I've got a Radeon 7000, 9250SE, AIW 9800PRO, and now my 6800TD. The 7000 and 9250 are obviously garbage and the 9800 is VERY defective. It artifacts even when underclocked to 320/600. And if you want to get a 6800 GPU, DO NOT GET A ASUS N6800TD 512 MB! The clock speeds are obscenely slow for a 6800 (325mhz core and 270mhz memory, DDR 540mhz) and it is only 128-bit. It is about equal to a 9800pro.

    wolfram, the X850XT PE would be faster some. The only reason I got the X800XT PE over the X850XT PE was at the time I didn't want to use up two slots. The 850's cooler was so large that it blocked a PCI slot. The 800 only used one slot. However, it was all for nothing since the X1900XTX used up two slots too and that what I ended up with later.

    Yes MetalX, you're screwed with that ASUS one.
    Have you checked your 9800 PRO's temperature? They tend to run hot. That's why they artifact.

    My Main PC: ATI X550 128MB

    My Mum's PC: Nvidia 6800 GT 256MB

    My Dad's PC: Hercules 3D Prophet 32MB

    I used to have the 3D Prophet in my old AGP mobo so the X550 is certainly a step-up, however I think I might go for a 7900GS soon.

    Mum won't give me the 6800GT, says it plays DVD's too well!!

    Heck, even an onboard video card will play DVD's fine. Maybe you can convince her :)

    (1) nVidia GeForce 7900GS 256-Bit 256MB; It plays Oblivion on High @ 1280X1024, Sims 2 Maxed 1280X1024, HL2 Maxed 1280X1024. Much better than my old 6150 :dead:

    7950GT here. Maybe SLI in a few days if my PSU can handle it. Loving how much it pwns my old 6800TD. 2x the pixelpipes, more vertex shaders, 256-bit instead of 128, etc,etc

    Running an XFX GeForce 7600GT XXX-Edition on main rig here.
    Definitely the best bang-for-the-buck for mid range gaming on a tight budget (nope, I'm not a rich-kid). :)

    It's pretty good. Kinda like a revamped version of the 9800XT.
