"Be Prepared". Maybe you've heard this from your parents, friends, or co-workers. But I'm telling you to be prepared for DirectX 10. When those new games are released which utilize DirectX 10, you don't want to be left behind the pack. Understandably, you don't want to break the bank, so you'll probably be looking to get a mainstream card. If you're looking on the ATi side of video cards, the 2900 XT is probably on the expensive side for you. What about Sapphire's HD2600 XT video card? It sells for less than half of the 2900 XT, but still boasts DirectX 10 capability. Can this Sapphire HD2600 XT video card give you the performance you need at a price that keeps your wallet full? Let's dig in and find out!
