Decent card. It'll do pretty well. It is kindof in it's own category. I almost bought it, but decided to save up for the 6800GS instead. If you're not planning on heavy gaming the X1600 Pro's aren't a bad pick.

The X1600Pro is GeForce 6800-ish. But the 6600GT often beats it.

Then again, the 6600GT and 6800 are pretty close too.

While the X1600 Pro might have a higher clock speed and more memory the 6800 has a memory interface of 256-bit and the X1600 only has a memory interface of 128-bit. If I were you I would just save up for a 6800GS

Yea, the 128-bit memory really screwed the X1600.

Agreed, save up for 6800GS.

Get your own facts right. I've been following them since the first review on HardOCP.
