    i recently found an x1800xt for 350 american. I was wondering if this is a better buy than a 7800gt for about 300. Help please!

    an x1800xt is miles ahead of a 7800gt in terms of preformance. Future upgradability might not be there as the r520 core is already discontinued so a xfire card might be hard to find if you want to go that way. But the x1800xt is well worth the 50 IMO.

    Yep, its way ahead of 7800GT. Its kinda a competitor with 7800GTX, but not quite.

    Go with x1800XT man, for $350, you going to love it.
     
  4. The X1800Xt blows the 7800GT out of the water, and if you can get it for only $350 you are basically stealing it!

    The X1800XT would decimate a 7800GT and at that low a price you'd be a fool not to get one. :)

    i agree with the others, the x1800xt was the best card there is untill the 7800gtx512 came along, a 7800gt wont touch it, and the $50 difference is worth it.

    I prefer Nvidia but have to agree for only $50 more go with the x1800xt over the 7800gt. Enjoy the card it's a good one.
