    Saphhire X1650Pro 256 GDDR3 or XFX 7600GT 256 GDDR3
    Both Cards are AGP version.
    What is the best? Which one could be better for overclocling, voltmodding or enable more pipelines...

    Thanks
    One more time... Sorry about my english!!! :laugh:

    The X1650Pro will give you more stable (albeit a little lower) framerates and much better image quality.

    X1650XT > 7600GT
    X1650PRO < 7600GT.

    O_O

    X1650XT is what you want not the X1650PRO

    But image quality wise, X1650PRO > 7600GT

    Ok.. Just a few more questions. Is there a GT version of X1650? I haven´t seen here in Argentina. And the other question is... Actually I have a 9200SE with fan cooler and heatsinks with my stock and generic PSU... Do I have to change it if I buy the Sapphire X1650Pro AGP 256?

    Thanks A lot!

    a x1650pro should work with that PS but if you upgrade your cpu or enything else or overclock you will need a better PS hope that helps :)

    7600GT overclocks better and performs better than the x1650Pro. The only advantage the x1650Pro has is HDR and AA at the same time, but you don't want to enable both at the same time on that card, trust me.

    Ah, you're right, but personally, I'd go for the X1650Pro. The X1650, like most ATI cards, focuses on realism and sharpness of the 3D image. The 7600, like most NVIDIA cards short of the G80 series, focuses on the beauty of the 3D image. I, personally, prefer the realism of ATI cards to the elegance of NVIDIA ones (which is why I returned a 7900GS in favor of my X850XT).

    In short, if you're looking for good-looking performance, go for NVIDIA, and if you're looking for stable and realistic performance, go for ATI.

    Another question... Maybe I have the oportunity to change to a Sapphire X1950Pro but it is PCI Express not the AGP Version. So I should change my motherboard, processor and memories... and of course de PSU. Is important the difference betwen AGP and PCI Express???

    yes, there is a big difference between pci-e and agp, you want pci-e if you can get it, agp is pretty much dead

    go with the x1950pro if you can get it, it blows the doors of the 7600gt and completely destroys the x1650pro

    The Sapphire X1950PRO AGP is horrible. I would go for the Powercolor X1950PRO Extreme AGP. Since its PCB is smaller and the cooling is better. The HIS is also nice as well. However I would like to point out that ur PC is way too slow. Go for a new system rather than GPU as it would do u better.

    -Core 2 Duo E6300/E6350
    -2x1GB DDRII 667 (well any brand, even generic)
    -X1650XT, preferably from powercolor
    -160GB SATAII HDD
    -OEM DVD+RW+DL
    -IGreen 500W PSU, FTE (For the earth!!!!! :roll:)
    -DFI Infinity P965 Motherboard.
    -Same case.

    Reason is, that the P4 and mobo are near the end of their lives, that CPU is way too slow anyway. The PSU cannot support a GPU like a X1950PRO let alone a X1650PRO.

    Jajaja.. But. It´s not funny. Things are really expensive here. I´m been asking for a X1950XT and it cost u$s345, the E6600 cost u$s 400 or u$s 450. The ASUS P5W DH DELUXE EDITION cost u$s 298. I would be glad if newegg could have shipping around the world.... I´m thinking to buy a machine, but i will spend more than u$s 1500 but in USA it will cost no more than u$s 900 or maybe u$s 1000

    :cry:
