Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could help me decide if this will be a decent upgrade or not for gaming.. I currently have an ATI Radeon 9600XT 128mb card (agp) and my friend offered to sell me his ATI Radeon x1300 PRO 256mb card for $50....Will I notice a big difference graphically and performance wise? Or am better off getting something like a nvidea 6600 GT 128 ? This is only going to be an upgrade that I want to last me for another year or so...I know agp are a thing of the past but this is just a temp upgrade till I can offord a major upgrade.. I would appreciate any feedback on my situation...THanks again for your time..

I would keep the 9600xt . The x1300 is just plain vanilla single scoop :D

in English keep your card or get a 7600 gt will enable you to play games and

try out other games , definitly good for a 1 year buy .

Or if you want to stay with ATI you can get a X1650pro which is about on par with the 7600gt

the X1650XT is on par with 7600GT, the X1650Pro is on par with 7600GS

And yes it's probably a good idea to wait until you can afford a better card than a X1300pro
