    Cool

    Okay, I hate my X800GTO because it can't even run F.E.A.R or Quake 4 without lag with AA and AF on.

    I found a buyer for it, and now I'm gett a new and better vid card.

    So I'm deciding on a 7800GT, 7800GTX or 1800XT.

    All three cards are priced in the same range but I want the best bang for the buck. For eg, I know 7800GTX outperforms the 7800GT, but it might not be worth it if it's like 50% more expensive.

    Also, is Crossfire or SLI an option for me?

    Or should I just wait for DX 10 and get a godly card then?

    I have around $500 to work with. Lower that to $400 preferably and $600 is my max.

    dunno, is it?
    it depends on your mobo
    it needs to have (2) PCI-E x16 slots to start with.....
    it will have to be an nVidia nForce4 SLI flavor for SLI
    it has to have the RD480/580 chipset for Crossfire I believe,
    although I could be wrong on that one

    I've got a 7800 GT and it's amazing.
    Runs F.E.A.R perfectly fine.

    lol the X800GTO sux, but it's still better than a 128meg 6600GT that's true. I'm selling it for $150 CAD, $50 bucks off the price I got it for. I don't think I'll sell it to you tho, not because I've anything against you but since you're in the US, it's gonna cost you a leg to ship the card there.
