I guess it's an ok card. Instead try and get either an X850 XT or an Nvidia 7600GT. Both come in 256mb but they're way better then the X1600 PRO.

X1600 Pro is not good card

The 7600GS and 7600GT can both outperform it

I looked at this ^^ benchmark and 7600GS was able to beat X1600 pro in all tests. And that was just the 7600GS, not GT

So, the X1600PRO is not good at all

He can get 7600GT for the same price as X1600pro

ُُُeVGA 7600GT

Also, he can get BIOSTAR 7600GT for just $99.9 !!!

its a good card. I run it and play BF2, COD2, and many others at max settings with no lag or stutters. For the price you cant go wrong.

The 1600 pro is a budget noob card. If your a noob, then sure pick one up.
