X850pro 130 used one time in a review
x800XT all in wonder new 197 after tax
well, if you plan to use the features of the all-in-wonder, then go with that. it probably has a better warranty also. but, if you dont need an all-in-wonder for its features, go with the cheaper x850. if its only been used once, im sure its fine, and the x800 may not be worth the extra $67 if you're not even going to use the all-in-wonder features. i'd go with the x850
I'm thinking the x850pro I would use the TV tho, it would be nice to have.
How much faster is the X850pro over the X800XT?
X800XT has 16 pipes opened right out of the box.....X850Pro has 12....so unless you can unlock the extra pipes..X800XT will outperform the X850Pro at stock clocks....and give you the TV capability.
It's a crap shoot on opening the pipes....BUT....if you could unlock the extra pipes.....then performance wise the X850Pro should outperform the X800XT provided you can clock and cool It well enough.
If messing with all that Isn't your thing though..then the X800XT AIW Is the choice.....good performance....and the TV capability you want to use.

You can see that the Stock X800XT vs the Stock X850Pro gets over 700 more 3dMark 05 points.
Hope It helps.
so your looking for AGP ?
do you need it soon?
Safe to assume you've upgraded your Mobo then?
Because In your thread about frying your X1600 you stated it was fryed by you mounting a HS to the PCI-E to AGP bridge chip....hence..AGP card.
Just trying to get specifics.
(Although you should consider putting your system specs In your profile....It can save some time trying to figure some of this stuff out)
Either way......Unless you plan on Unlocking the Pipes of the X850Pro(Provided they can be Unlocked) I'd still say the X800XT AIW.....comes with the 16pipes...and gives you the TV functionality your looking for.
yea unless your gonna unlock the pipes on the x850, go the x800
same price 193 (even lower sometimes)
Is the X850 Pro the ViVo Edition? If not, I would go with the X1800GTO, since it's the same price as the X800XT AIW.
