    trying to get a card for my friend in the netherlands, i found one for him but he says he doesnt want it as it only has 8 pipes ???

    this is what the site says it is...

    make: Sapphire
    Type: ATI X800GTO
    Interface: PCIe x16
    Chipset: ATI Radeon X800 GTO
    Engine: 400 MHz
    memory: 256 MB
    memory type: DDR3
    memory speed: 490 MHz
    pixel pipelines: X 8



    to me it all looks fine apart from the pipe lines... im certain they never made an 8 pipes X800 GTO, what would be the point :confused:

    a little help would be great, thanks all.

    Only 8 Pipe X800's were the GT and SE.

    All GTO's should be 12 pipers.
