Question Was this a good decision?

Ok monday I ordered a x800 gto agp for $155 since my budget was only $150 and my old computer only has agp. Was this a good buy? I hope I can unlock pipes and get a sweet oc. What are the pro's and con's of this card?

It's not a bad card per se, a little out dated, but none the less not a bad card... if your not trying to run some hog of a game like oblivion or BF2, etc... ON high settings, I personally don't think it was a bad deal for the budget you have. This coming from someone who used to have an X800 PRO and had no issues with it what-so-ever.

perhaps that might help.

only certain brands of x800gto can be unlocked.

but some words of comfort i have a regular x800 and it runs BF2 fine on medium with 4x AA and call of duty 2 full settings at 1024*768
AMD 3000+
2gb RAM
X800 PCI-e
