    Hi I currently have the Sapphire Radeon X800GT

    I am looking to upgrade!

    Only thing is i dont know to what! I want a card that will give me noticeable performance at a decent price. However if theres a card which costs that little bit extra but will give me a HUGE performance boost i will go for it


    So guys once again please advise!

    Thanks!

    I think that its actually a good card.
    Why not mod it to a 850XT? its possible? It has the same chip

    Check the card information with ati tool. The x800gt actually seems to have a number of different cores with it.

    If you do insist on upgrading to a new card, and you will pay a little extra for a HUGE performace boost, then........:

    7900GT!!!

    EDIT: forgot to say they overclock to speeds as fast, if not faster than the 7800GTX512, which is crazy fast!

    If you can put $300 toward a graphics card, get the 7900GT. If you can put $150 toward a graphics card, get the X850XT. If you can put $100 toward a graphics card, get this :D.
