High-End Graphics

With the way these high-end video cards are priced, for our readers concern, we still do not suggest going with any of these cards. If you are looking to spend that amount of money on a video card, look into one of the ultra high-end cards we have discussed on the previous page. But if you are looking for something a bit cheaper, your best bet is to go with a mid-range card, which we will discuss on the following page.

    Is there a reason why the X850 XT wasn't even mentioned? NewEgg has the card right now for $209-$219 (PCI-E) which looks to be a tremendous deal. Isn't it supposed to be even faster than a 6800 Ultra, which was mentioned? Reply

    Surprised no one caught on to the eVGA combo deal at Monarchcomputer.com ...

    eVGA NF4 Mobo w/ SLI & eVGA 7800GT for $360.xx

    Dirt Cheap IMHO... if we weren't so damn close to AMD AM2 kit I would be all over that...

    [quote]If you're in the market for a 512MB X1800XT, the best deal we can find for you is the Sapphire Radeon X1800XT 512MB [RTPE: 100134] going for approximately $475.[/quote]

    My question is why would anyone buy an X1800XT 512MB part when for ~$25 more they can get an X1900XT?

    Is it just me or the 7800GTX 512 (around 900$USD) is extremely overpriced in comparison to the X1900XTX (around 600$USD)? Seems to me Nvidia will be in trouble if the don't lower thoses prices quickly. Reply

    I think it's a little soon to declare Nvidia "in trouble" over momentary pricing of a bleeding edge card that's been in rare-to-none availability status. That said, yes the ATI card is the better deal for the moment. Reply

    I'm sure they will lower (well I hope so) their prices.

    No X1800XT's are listed and a X800XL is still considered high-end? Reply

    Look closer..Every X1800 product with 512mb of ram IS an XT, not XL Reply
