    Sapphire 256MB Radeon X1600 PRO AGP

    Can I ask what you think of this card?
    Since my ati 9500 has died I am looking to replace but without also swapping the motherboard.
    Obviously I like the idea of a 939 with new chip, more ram pci-express but can't do that yet.

    specs:-
    ""Sapphire 256MB Radeon X1600 PRO AGP Lite Retail

    110025789
    Die Abbildung kann von der Originalware abweichen!Sapphire Hybrid Radeon X1600 Pro, 256MB DDR2, DVI, TV-out, AGP, Lite Retail (11076-00-20) Pipelines: 12, Chiptakt: 500MHz, Speichertakt: 400MHz • max. Verbrauch: 33W (geschätzt) 130,21 EUR ""

    I can only find it available in Germany but assuming I can get a friendly retailer what do you think? My idea is to run it on a Abit NF7 for htpc/games etc and understand the card is good for high def tho not that brill for games.

    Am I thinking along the right lines or not? Any input appreciated.

    so sorry, it was a glitch and I thought that I not posted.
    Hexus was down for "essential maintenance" so that may be what was the problem.
    Not my habit to double post and would have deleted if I knew how

    I'd probably recommend a 6600 GT rather than that ATI card.

    The x1600 Pro isn't exactly a quick card and the nVidia card will be quicker, so if they're the same price go for the 6600 GT. It might be worth looking at an x800 or x800 GTO if its a similar price because its quicker too.

    Many thanks Kowshak, looks like I need to re-consider.
