    Default Ati X800 Gto

    Hello, Im thinking about buying a "Gecube Radeon X800GTO", i saw the review on tweaktown and found that it is quite cheap from some sites.
    However i want to know how it compares with the XLs and XTs of the x800 series, anybody know?
    Also, do you think the x800 gto will run quake 4 on a 8 man TDM with a constant 60fps? My only reason for upgrading is to be able to run Q4.

    If you're going to upgrade for Quake 4, and nVidia card is the only type of card even worth considering. Regardless of what card you're talking about, nVidia will have one for much less money that beats it in Quake 4.

    If you want to know how benchmarks compare, just look at Doom 3 benchmarks as they will be very similar to the Quake 4 benchmarks, since the games are on the same graphics engine.

    if you do buy a gecube gto then make sure you get the gto and not the gtu (which is just a gt) ... gecube has (sneakily?) been sending out gto's to reviewers and after that shipped their crippled gtu cards with a very similar name...links to their website:

    x800 gto 12 pipelines GC-RX800GTO3-D3:
    http://www.gecube.com/products-detai...&prod_id=21783
    x800 gtu 8 pipelines GC-RX800GTU3-D3:
    http://www.gecube.com/products-detai...&prod_id=21893

    it doesnt mean the gtu sucks...just be carefull what you buy...also see this pdf for speed specs.:

    yeah the sapphire rules...especially the gto2 version...by the way...asus has a gto out now too....its the eax800gto/2dtv ... too bad its not reviewed anywhere yet..curious about its overclockability (but im prolly going for the 6800gs anyway)

    Not in the U.S.... They're about the same price here. The 6800GS is maybe $10-$15 more expensive than an X800GTO.
