    SAPPHIRE RADEON X1800 XL 256MB & XFX GeForce 7800 GT 256MB

    Both card packages offer compelling reasons for purchase but given a direct choice between the two, our money would slide over into XFX's corner for a number of reasons. Its GeForce 7800 GT is marginally faster in a sector where framerates matter hugely.

    Thanks for the review.

    Noticed a comment on image quality. Please keep in mind that I have not been reading every single articles on IQ on the latest cards. But Firingsquad suggest that the new drivers actually improved IQ over the old drivers.

    Whether the improvement still limits it to X850 levels, I don't know.. But food for thoughts....

    What about the other four sitting under that MASSIVE HEATSINK? You can even see the SMD components on the back of all eight chips on the back of the card - 8 256-bit DRAMs on this card.

    Nice one, Tarinder
