PCI-E for video slot is only 16x ?? then you have the other pci-e slots that take the place of old pci. but pci-e video is always 16x.

Wrong on two accounts there. A single PCIE slot is 16x. Dual (apaprt from a couple of mobo's) is 8x. PCI-Extreme is PCIE x4.

X1600Pro is a horrid card. I sent it back in one build as it was that bad.

Edit: To confirm, you have a Intel PC or AM2, yeah?

People are saying that card can run oblivion on max settings?

And its 115 dollars?

And im assuming a card like the 7900GT KO can just about run oblivion on max settings?

What am I missing?

That card can only play CS at 1440 X 900 at 40fps average with out HDR. Make that max with out HDR and a low res such as 800, and only 2x AA. The 7900 will run it at 1280 with HDR and 4x AA.

None of us were saying to go for a 7900GT this late in the game. We are just saying the X1600 is not a nice card. Well I was saying it is a terrible card.
