Not bad for the price. Don't expect to max out anything fairly new, though.

I agree with Deathawk, definitely get the X850XT...one of the best bang for your buck cards.

You probably would see a big increase of performance over an x700se, but don't take that the wrong way, an x700 se isn't that great of a card, not that hard to outperform

An x800 128mb card for 50 dollars is a good deal... but that's only because the price is low for it. It's not that great of a card.. performance wise... I'd still go for the x850xt is possible
