Newegg.com - Open Box: HIS Hightech H165PRF256N-R Radeon X1650PRO 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 CrossFire Supported Video Card

MUCH MUCH FASTER than both of those cards

Sora if you cant read my POSt dont bother posting, im looking at this card because its cheap and that the store is near by, i wont buy off line so DONT post any Newegg products or any other products.

Im asking a simple question.... how much of an upgrade is the HD 2600pro? from my x1300pro
and is it worth upgrading?

Why ask for advice if you don't want advice other than what you want to hear? If you can get a much better card for the money wouldn't you want to do that? Even if you are looking only to buy from a nearby store, there is a chance they'd be carrying the other card that's a better deal.

I strongly recommend this video card
Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

It cheap and better than all video cards you posted here

Asking for an answer from the choices provided is not asking too much, yet people here take it upon themselves to ignore this and try to force their own choices upon the asker. The poster asked an opinion on a single card over a single card.

The 2600 would be an improvement (if I have my numbers straight).
