are you sure your getting the best price on a x1600 512...i bought mine for 160$ canadian... and the 7900gt costs about 410$ canadian where i live...

Btw the x1600pro 512 comes with all of the visually pleasing stuff that the higher end cards have, just with a lower memory interface and clock speeds. Id reccomend it if you want to spend under 200$ canadian...BF2 is no problem on high settings with this card...well moderately high (not max)

oh and with VIVO you might even see better image quality on the ati... just a thought if you like Price and visuals over performance.

7800gt hasn't dropped in price since the 7900gt has been released.. they're pretty much the same price, but the 7900gt is way better.

most games yes.

some games like bf2 ppl say that its memory hungry and you would need something like 2gigs of memory to really see the full potential... but with most games its enough.


with 'eye candy' turned off and at normal resolution, ALL games will run on max. if you crank up the resolution and turn up the eye candy, your rig will probably struggle in games like oblivion and other new games...

when it comes to games, intel struggles compared to the equivalent AMD processor..
