New X800 Video Card

Post by A10Pilot3 » Thu May 06, 2004 7:59 pm

ATI is coming out with a new video card, the X800 to match...or pass (which is the way it looks right now) the nvidia 6800.

You can win one off the ati website if you are really lucky. http://www.ati.com/

I just like that it doesn't need to molex connectors like the 6800

From the reviews I've read the ATI card uses less power than the older 9800XT, and on top of that it uses only one slot. For me the big draw back s the required 480 watt power supply of the 6800 line..........my sistem runs hot enough as it is.......... :shock:

Especially with the cost of a good power supply that has true 460 or higher I won't get anything for a while until prices drop.
