Ok I ordered a x850 crossfire from ati a month ago and they have not send it to me, I was wondering if anyone can recomment me a similar card as the x850.

It has to have:

16 pipepixils
clock memory and run over 500+
and 8 + giga pixils
Most important it has to be pci - express

Thank You

It's a little slower than the 7900GT but is 60 bucks cheaper. Power consumption is a little higher to I believe.

FYI pipes, clockrates, and fillrates are no absolute on actual performance vis-a-vis cross architecture comparison.

First of all i said pci - express, which means my computer is new not old so agp doesn't work for me second i forgot to mention it has to be cheaper than $200 (canadian) and btw im not kidding in any way. Third which card are you talking about? Oh just for the record plz tell me not to buy the 7600 GT cause that card is garbage compared to the x850 crossfire which fucking ati cancelled for me when i ordered it from them 2 months ago, and the x850 crossfire was only for 200 dollars canadian including everything!!!

Hopefully everyone in ati dies they wasted my summer only to cancel my fucking order 2 months later

well the x800 / x850 (R400) series has been out of production for quite some time now. you can still find them floating around retail but ATI directly only sells their current line + they were just bought by AMD so there may be some issues with their sales I suppose.

For under $200 you're basically looking at a 7600GT or an X1800GTO (if you could find one) in the "brand new" cards department, or finding a place that still has some R400's in stock. The original X800, X800XL, X800XT, and all the X850's all have 16 pipes, while the X800GTO has 12 and the X800GT has 8.

Dunno why you say no way to the 7600GT, it's faster than the X1800GTO & X800's, cheaper, and still widely avalible. There are a lot of X800's avalible used for cheap too.

Lefty just talking to you on TS makes me happy :drinks: you never have to respond i'm sry if i made the wrong impression, its just that those fucking bastards ruined my summer. I waited for 1 month for ati to tell me that my order was cancelled.

zomg, i can't recommend video cards man. i woulda told u to just go buy a laptop....

usually kriegs-maschine comments on this stuff. i say don't get an expensive card until a month or 2 after ut2k7 demo comes out or something

and yeah, don't get too defensive, break down barriers like philcollins breaks down...nevermind....philcollins can't break anything down
