That thing will still kick the snot out of the X1600, but not so much as the GT.

it should... Although BF2 favors ATI the 7800GS is still superior.

they're not even the same freakin type of cards! gs is an agp, the x1600 is a pci-e...make sure your parts are compatiable before you buy because you shouldn't be debating two parts that are totally different!
