Cyprinoi am going to go for the ATI Radeon X1600XT 256MB. I can't be Ar53d to save up for an X1800, its just too much :bawl:

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_X1300___X1600_Series_708.html So, do i get the HIS Excalibur (6th down) or Sapphire (bottom). i remember some of you saying that sapphire use cheapo heatsinks, are HIS any better?

thanks

If you're set on an X1600, go for the HiS - a better cooling solution really can work wonders. However, I really would suggest saving up a little more - the X1600 is good, but the X18/900s are better. At the end of the day, you don't want to spend a lot of money on a lower-end card that will become obsolete sooner. Hell, even my X800GTO could give an X16k series a kick in the performance department.

true that, i love my x800gto. the R420 is a hell of a overclocker.

Best cheap Pci-e card imo is the His X800GTO Turbo: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_X800___X850_Series_407.html £105 at the moment plus it has the R480 core and the samsung 1.6ns memory which is the same as the X850XT and you can unlock to 16 piplines,so in essance you get an X850XT with overclocking (which the stock cooler handles very well idal 34c/load45c)for £105!!
