The X700 Pro is better because it has a 256MB ramdac and the 6600GT only has a 128MB ramdac. This is based on facts. However, even if they had equally sized ramdacs, I would still pick ATi because those are the cards I have been using since the beginning.

The X700Pro was meant to compete with the 6600 standard edition not the 6600GT thatÂ’s why the GT beats it. ATI where going to make a X700XT to compete with the 6600GT but it seems to have been replaced with the X800 in the end so between these 2 cards the 6600GT wins.

The Leadtek card earned the gold star in those tests, but the eVGA card was not tested.

Which company is better?
