    WTF same website, yet they show a X1900gt is faster than x1650 crossfire, a few months before on the same site.They did a review and the scores were better than the x1900XTX
    (Granted Chris pointed out the 8x but they should of caught this)/

    So has anyone found this review done on a 3200 chipset? X1600XT(OR X1650pro) Vs X1900XT

    PCIe 8x shouldn't make a real difference. I'm more interested in the extra power it requires to run the Crossfire cards.

    The 8x vs 16x does make a difference in X1600, X1300 Crossfire, because the crossfire talks over the bus. This does not make that much of a difference in X1900XT crossfire because it doesn't need the extra bus speed to talk between the cards. Wiz should do a review on the differences.

    Its a huge difference between PCI-E 8 and PCI-E 16.
