    you had an x1600xt 6 months ago? I did not think it was out till just a short while ago but far out 2 of them got you to 9000 in 3dmark05 wow thats probly what killed the secound one. face it a 1600 by its self would barely hit 3000 in fact my 9800pro beat the crap out of my 1600 pro but that was just me I'm sure yours was the bomb :D
    however would like to see crossfire scores of one

    Some x1600 XTs gets about 5000 points in 3dmark05. 9000 isn't a longshot for two of them in crossfire. Its the x1300 that your talking about and the x1300 is better than a 9800 pro. x1600 pro should get about 3800-4000 points 3dmark05 points. You must have some serious either system or benchmarking issues if your x1600 is not as good as your 9800 pro. The x1600 pro is much better than a 9800 pro. x1300 is a little weaker than a 9800 pro.

    You are going to RMA it back right? Where did you order it from?

    The X1600 Pro is worse than a 9800 Pro, except SM3 which is pointless on a weak card anyway. The X1600XT should be called something different because its so much better than a X1600 Pro.

    These scores really go to far in illustrating that the 3DMark benchmark means next to nothing when it comes to real-world gameplay. Even though I get about 6300 in 3DM05 my 7600GT will wipe the floor with the 1600XT when it comes to actual gaming.

    when posting a replly there is a thing called "quick image upload", use it, just browse the pic. on your pc and then upload it, if possible in JPEG 'cause it uses less space
