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!

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.
