6200OC PCI or X1550PRO PCI?

  1. Lemme give you a little background first. I bought the 6200 about a year ago, and I loved how smooth it ran, but I also hated the price. I returned it to pursue cheaper solutions. The next one I found was a X1300. It seemed to run better than the 6200, but I really wasn't sure. I sold that one to a friend am so I'm once again looking for a good video card.

    As of this writing, Best Buy has the 6200OC on sale for $120. Drastically less than what I first paid for it ($180). Link: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...ategoryId=pcmcat107700050041&id=1130987962366

    Also available is an X1550PRO from Newegg for $108 (After Rebate: $88). Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814103031

    I'm well aware that the X1550 is just a rename of the X1300. But this paticular card is described as an X1550PRO. I think there would be a little room for improvement there. :)

    My question to you, since both cards are in the same price range which would you prefer?

    BTW: If you hadn't figured it out already I can only use PCI. Damn eMachines.

    I'd advise you to save your money and wait until you have enough to buy a new motherboard + video-card.

    You do have a video-card currently, right? If not, then how are you posting this? The best I could do with my eyes closed was open firefox and then go to google.com, but then I screwed up when trying to guess where on the screen the links would be.

    Go for the x1550
    is better and different from the x1300, the x1300 is a 90nm core and the x1550 is 80nm , this means that this little core will need less power to run fine and wont get hot, that means you can overclock a little bit more than the x1300, thats in theory.
    And also the x1300 was better than the 6200, so you can imagine..
    Good luck and let us now your choice
