  1. Hey guys i just need a lil info and am sure u guys can help me out...

    Currently i own an X800 XL and am thinking of an Upgrade..but cant spend more than 240 CDN.. there are a couple of cards that come in my mind but am not really sure about it.... Do you think i should get an X1800 GTO or a 7600 GT?.. will any of these cards give my gaming performance a majore boost compared to the X800XL that i have ?... OR should i get a 7800 GT

    Thanks
    Harris

    I really don't think you should get a new graphics card at the moment, what with DirectX 10 cards coming out in a while and the fact that you have a pretty decent card at the moment. If I were you I'd wait and upgrade the whole rig later(this is if you're a gamer, btw)
    Of course it's your money...

    If u want to upgrade, sell ur old card and get an X1800 GTO or 7900 GT if its affordable enough. I saw a couple of 7900 GTs on Tigerdirect.ca for around 350 CAD. U can probably afford that if u sell ur old card.
