Hi,

I've got a Radeon 9800PRO at the moment and i had a quick glance at OC's AGP cards - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_AGP_403.html

And was nicely suprised at the prices of the higher end cards.

From the site 3 card caught my eye.

PowerColor ATI Radeon X800 GTO 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-050-PC)

PowerColor ATI Radeon X850 XT 256MB DDR3 VIVO TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-058-PC)

Sapphire X1600 Pro 512MB DDR2 AVIVO TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-120-SP)

Which of the 3 would be the best for gaming?

Thanks

Viks

Definately not the X1600 as it's useless. I think i am right in saying the X850 is the fastest of the three, but also the noisiest and hottest running one. Pretty good price though so if you want it you will have to move fast as that ends today. No SM3 support though.

Not interested in a Nvidia 6800GS. Similar performance to the X800GTO and the BFG one is also in this week only.
