    Hi all,

    I'm defining a configuration for an upgrade of my box and I'm in doubt on these two cards:

    - Sapphire Radeon X800GTO2 with BIOS modding and OC to become an X850XT PE with a cooler Zalman Fatal1ty

    - Sapphire Radeon X850XT PCI-E

    Since, in my country, the difference of pricing between them is the Zalman cooler in favour to the X850XT, I'd like to know if the GTO2 gets higher performance than the X850XT since it becomes a PE...

    On other forums people told me to forget these cards and go for a 6800GS but from what I've been reading, the 6800GS is lees performant than the above cards...

    What do you think?

    thanx

    I would forget about the saphirre, Just get the ATI x850xt, nice to overclock, stable, and quick. It is clockable past the X850xtPE and you don't have to worry about any BIOS modding......

    for get about ATI and go for the Green ....
    The lovely SM3 6800 GS for 185$ for his bigger brother the 7800 GT for 285$
    less after rebate ..remember that ATI control panel need 100 MB phisical memory
    to work and you have to insta the .net application and above all of these you get Crappy Shader modle 2 without HDR ...its supported in a lot of crucial titles right now .NFSMW,,AGE3 ,, B&W ,,SAM2 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ets .....


    Update ...GS for 179$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130267
    BTW : not that less it the GS can get you like 5900 3dmark05 with a mid systeme ..I DID USED it .Bench it.
    the GS and the GT can squeeze the XT GTO until they start vanish ....Go THE WAY its ment to be played.

    The PCIe 6800GS wont be able to keep up with a X850XT or XT PE so I wouldnt recommend that beyond its features which imo are not worth the performance difference.

    The new ATI Catalyst Control Centre can still be removed and worked around easily so thats a none issue imo and, to be fair, has steadily improved over the last few driver releases.

    NFS: Most Wanted doesnt use HDR, it uses bloom/overbright effects to simlulate HDR and that is available on any DX9 card afaik (works fine on my X800XT PE).

    To the OP: Obviously if you can spend a little more a 7800GT would be be your best bet, maybe a X1800XL if it *must* be ATI for some reason, but out of those two the 7800GT is the one to go for imo.

    Between a X850XT and X850 Pro @ XT PE you would likely not notice the difference in performance so Id say go for which ever is cheaper, or if you want to be safe, the X850XT (guarnteed 16 pipelines with no bios tomfoolery). Hope some of that helps. :)

    Out of those two I would choose the X850XT. I say this even though I had a X800GTO2 mainly because the new revision of the X800GTO2 is basically just a rebranded X800XL and won't overclock as well.

    First the 7800 GT is Faster than the X1XL and that Fact has been proved form the mejority of the Hardware comunity ...or Am I worng ????
    Now Age of impires Does have HDR or Am I wrong ??...Black and white also Do,
    Far Cry , lets say that NFSMW do not but i did see it on the GS ,GT ,XT and the
    difference is Obvious and very important ...the 6800 GS when you set it to work
    on 490 /1100 will be a little less than the the 6800 Ultra .remember that the Ultra version is the Competitor to the X800XT PE and then the X850XT PE
    So Even if the X850XT PE were like 20 dollars less than the the 6800 GS I will
    go for the best image and the difference in performance is very small ..
    BTW : a frind of mine today told me that he has sold his 9800Pro (after he was a big fan of the red and ) and got himself a nice first step 6600GT that Can outperfrom the X1600XT in a good number of games ......SO Count on me ...
    Go for tomshardware for the HDR difference ....ah the True HDR.

    BTW : its not fair form the Red part to make the X1XT look that bad against the X19XT after almost 90 Days
    form the day that they did said that its the superior Power ?????
    and I DO have to install the DOT NET to USE the CCC ,in normal life I want to use the usolute best for the money
    that I'v spend So not using the CCC that do reserve more than 100MB physical memory and make your pc work
    slower would not be my Goal ....They did stopped releasing the Clasic CP form version 5.13 or so....
    wait 2006 and you dont get Shader model 3 ???! Shader model 4 is on the way with DX10 ...and with the
    Green Goblin ...nVidia ...THE WAY IT'S MEANT TO BE PLAYED .

    XFX GeForce 6800GS XXX @ 525/1300 (Mine! :)) will beat stock x850XT.
    But remember x850XT is stock, so if you oc it even to 540/1050 (from 520/1080 stock) it will easily beat 6800GS OC'd. I would go with HIS x850XT IceQ

    Sapphire x850XT has really bad reviews, I mean they're not bad but almost every other person has a cooler problem (broken, doesnt cool the card which leads to overheating artifacts etc etc)
