    I want to purchess the Sapphire X800 Fireblade card for my setup but iam wondering is the card really worth buying i have an HIS X700 pro 400mhz Core 500mhz mem (250mhz) i can only get a maxium overclock of 30mhz in the core! Will I notice any gain while playing games such as F.E.A.R?

    (Ps this card sucks X700 only has DDR1 Mem if i over clock even by 10mhz in the mem the card fails!)

    My Rig:

    Sempron 3000+ 1.8ghz:eek:
    ASUS K8N4-E DELUXE:nutkick:
    1GB DDR 3200:shadedshu (value ram)
    200GB IDE HD
    HIS X700 Pro:laugh:

    I know that the X700s dont run too well with FEAR...How much are the X800s going for these days? and how much are you willing to spend? I suggest making a better investment and spending a lot of money on a good card then getting one that is already kinda outdated. Also, it wouldnt be worth the upgrade unless you at least get the x800 xl.

    The X800 fire blade is hardly outdated.... what are you talking about? I am not going to majorly upgrade until DDR 3 comes to socket M2!....nvidia fan nice card!

    I apologize I was thinking of the fire blade. It is a nice card. Would def. help with FEAR. However, in some areas I even lag in FEAR. I found out that FEAR requires 2 GB of RAM to run at higher resolutions so thats the reason it is lagging a little for me. Dunno if it is the same reason for you, but just as an FYI
