I plan on getting that card, but I want to know if you think it will be able to run the new games...

HL2, F.E.A.R, Oblivion and such games with at a normal / above normal settings.

My friend has a 700 and he can play Oblivion at the lowest settings. How much power does the 850XT have over the 700 series?

Hey I got a x700 pro 128 ddr3,
I can only play source at the default settings and if I set something to high; I see a huge dip in performance...if I go overboard it freezes. I run it on a 3200+, 512 generic ram and 120 gb samsung hdd. I know it's kind of biased; but frankly the x700 series sucks balls compared to the 6600gt...and there will be a lot more sucking if compared to the 850xt.

Also I heard somewhere that the x700 only has the same amount of pipelines as the 9600. Whereas the 850 would have the same as or more [not sure[ than the 9800... basicly it has more pipelines than the x700.

Neways..I am not so sure but all I do know is that the x700 is crap...anybody please quote me on this!

I have an X850 XT PE and i run oblivion on high settings with hdr fine. Its a good buy. But if you want to have no lag in the game get a better card.

I think that should do fine...I'm running an Integrated 32-MB graphic card on my Compaq *Dies* but it runs games no problem, as long as the RAM is right, and the CPU speed is good, you should have no problem.

ati makes pci-e cards now and a lot of newer motherboards feature this graphics technology exclusively. i havent seen any crossfire boards [ati's answer to sli] with core2duo support, but im sure they will come out eventually. right now there are boards that have pci-e slots and support core2duo [which is socket 775]

I don't see the point in crossfire or SLI...I know it maybe cheaper to buy two of the same card and jam them together...but gosh it just seems silly to buy two of the same card. Just like buying two packets of the same flavoured chip.

theres generally a increase in performance.
and i think crossfire only requires a crossfire capable card, im not sure they need to be the same.

wow...damn...I regret buying a one slot pci-e X16 board now...damn you think correctly lol.

Hmmm can you use the pci-e X 1 or x 4 slots, reason i am asking is that they look different from the x 16 slot. Also do you see an increase in performance for dual channel ram? and how do you read cas latencies? Like is cas 3 better or cas 2.5? Does it really matter?
