    Get the ASUS AH2600PRO/HTDP/512M Radeon HD 2600PRO 512MB 128-bit.... That card sure have bater OC then Sapphire and it run cooler... And u will get DX10 with HD2600...:rockout:

    If your modo support PCI-e 16X then u should get The PCI-e HD2600XT.... that card sure more faster or HD3850...

    I dunno, I'd say the ASUS one.

    Might wanna check on Ebay for something better... Looks like you can get a 1650pro there for around 80$ "New"

    unless you get a 8800GTS series or a 3850 or greater card you won't see a slowdown at all with PCIE 4x, you can get a X1950XTX and not see a slowdown

    Get the HD 2600XT GDDR4 PCI-E, or better HD 3850. The 4x PCI-E is better than the AGP dude.

    Guys, the G80s don't really like PCI-E 4x... performance goes kaput on them. I'd instead look at something thats more matured such as an X1950PRO... Even that open box is a good idea. HD2600XT/8600GT, do I have to reinitate this debate? They both are far slower than the X1950PRO, in terms of ram performance. Who cares about DX10 on the HD2600XT/8600GT when they both can't even perform to a substantial extent? I mean DX10 on either cards... = death, and most high end cards can barely do DX10 at barely playable framerates..

    Don't get sucked in by marketing stratergies, honestly. You are far better off with the X1950PRO with the near-flawless drivers and the fact that it brings far more performance to the table for your dollar. Why would you purchase something that costs the same but does 2x worse?

    X1950PRO. End of story.

    DX10 doesnt warrant a buy.

    yeah G80/G92/RV670 = problems on the asrock board

    that X1950PRO would be great for your setup though, go for it
    its a good overclocker also
