ATI Radeon 7000 32mb SDRAM..WOOT.

 

Nah. I would go for the XTPE. My bro has it and run's bf2 on full everything 4x AA and all.

 

It would also depend on the rest of the system. If he'll be able to do the same.

 

 

Oh and he got the GTO2 and unlocked it. Works great.

6800 hands down. anything 6600GT or up will play BF2 fine(shaders and all,with high settings)- otherwise if you're an ATI fan, x700 or up. i prefer the nvidia-

 

there's alot more choices in the 200 range than the 2 you've chosen. shop well! or there's always ebay too!

 

Joalaielna, lol I had one of those peices of crap at one time! it was a 64mb tho- sold it off and got me a Ti4200 64mb. only ati i've ever owned, or will. ah- the memories!

the x800xtpe is the x800gto2 rite? i think the gto2 is cooler (i mean COOL ,like atitude)because the non overclocking computer noobies (average users with no oc) will all have 6800gs and your friend got a x800xtpe(overclockin! and unlocked!)imagine if you oc your friends computer.. and say he has a fx-57 too :shake:

umm he did mentioned AGP. and 6800GS AGP can be unlocked. I know most people that has the card on Mkvtech.net unlocked theirs.

 

heck when both are factory default and locked, 6800GS beats GTO2's a$$. without breaking a sweat. i tested both cards and GTO cant run 1024x768 HQ with 4xAA on an AMD 64 2.2Ghz. all stock. 6800GS on the same system can run 1280x1024 HQ with 2xAA. hell, my old 6600GT on Barton 2.2 can run 1280x1024 on medium quality with 2xAA.

 

of course, unlocked, the GTO got a supercharged boost out of it, and manage to beat the 6800gs. but if the 6800 got unlocked it got only about 10-15% boost.

but thats enough to beat GTO again :)

 

my 0.02.
