To be honest, it ain't all that good.... Even if you OC it still ain't good. Check these Performance benchshttp://graphics.tomshardware.com/gra...charts-02.html
and check the in house game performance benches too.

Nevermind, whenever you get a new computer it is a time to celebrate!!!!

Except a motto which floats around this forum is

DELL CAN GO TO HELL!!!!

And it is a good motto, to boot eh.....

I'd say it's an average card at best. It depends on what you plan doing with it really. Planning on gaming? If so, what sort of games are you into?

I'm gonna play some AOE III when it comes out. I've been talking to guys playing the demo with an x600 card, and they have most settings on high. I bought the x700, so I think we're gonna do fine with almost all games. It's not super fancy, but it'll get the job done.
