Thread: x800xl or 6600gt




  1. #1

    Default x800xl or 6600gt

    I can buy either a x800xl for $210 canadian or an 6600gt (128mb) for $160. I have an SLI board but do not have the money to use two cards right now, but maybe in a few months I will. Which card should i buy. Thanks.

    You already answered your own question. The 6600GT is your only logical choice. It supports Shader and Pixel 3 and is barely slower than the XL. And once you add another 6600GT, it will smoke any X800/X850 card. Just make sure the 6600GT is SLI ready.
