Question Radeon X800Pro PCIE 256M V/VIVO/D

Found a sweet deal on a Radeon X800PRO PCIE 256M V/VIVO/D Video Card.

Anyone use one before?

Know anything about it?

Good card? Bad card?

Bueno? No Bueno?

Buy it for $150? Don't buy it for $150?

What do you think?

Bad card. don't buy it.

It lacks SM 3.0 and the performance is crap compared to the 6800GS that is priced a little more than that X800 Pro.

People here that have used X800Pro's have walked away like they had thrown their money down the drain, because they did. even if you pay $150 for that thing, your paying too much. don't expect to run any game except for HL2 at a reasonable resolution, because the card just can't take it.

for a little under $200, the 6800GS will blow that card away.

The X800 Pro has went down in history as the worst card for the money of all time. $150 is a much more reasonable price for that card than it used to be, but $150 is still too much. Go for the 6800GS which wipes the floor with the X800 Pro.

P.S. I used to have the X800 Pro, I paid $400 for it when it came out, worst $400 I ever spent.
