** Hot: ATI X800XL 256MB PCI-E $169 **

Recommended Posts

For those canucks in the crowd, Canada Computers has the X800XL 256MB PCI-E card on for $169.99 Canadian.

 

Shipping is free in Canada, but there is a $10 flat handling charge.

Order Online or pickup from one of their 7+ stores across Ontario.

 

This is the 400/1000 Core/GDDR3 version, which many people have been reporting is able to overclock to 450/1120 - pretty close to X850XTPE speeds... Would make a nice base for an SLI rig for some! :)

not even close to X850XT PE speeds my friend

 

X850XT PE's are 540/590

 

core clocks are important

 

but

 

I will say that the X800XL 16-pipe 256MB, 256-bit card is a fantastic card and for $169 CDN (that's like...$4.00 in USA? hahaha) thats a stellar price. Seriously. It's a great card that won't break the bank, and if it has a good core, with the right cooling (water!) it can easily hit X850XT PE's core speeds.

True enuff - I meant performance is pretty close to the X850XTPE. My oldoldold X800 overclocked to 475/1150 did 1258 in 3DMark06, and my oldold X850XTPE at 540/1175 did 1375 - about a 8.5% dif for way less money.

The way you guys are bombing Iraqis these days, you'll be cross-border shopping in Canada in the not-too distant future. JK - but I just changed some US cash to Canadian for 9% - not bad considering it used to be like 22%!

Might even make a nice card in a SLI/crossfire setup. Tho I don't know anything about ATI's SLI, so maybe not.

 

Peace
