Radeon X800XL 256 Mb

If you are looking for a video card that can handle any game on the market you can't go wrong with the Radeon X800XL 256 Mb. With processing power to spare, this card offers the same GPU as the Pro version but with one third the clock speed. Even so this card still offers 16 pipes and can maintain graphic quality under the most demanding conditions.

This is a PCI express card which runs at about twice the speed as AGP 8X. The PCI express format guarantees it will be compatible with future game releases and operating systems. Onboard memory is 256 MB of GDDR3 SDRAM with a memory bus width of 256 bits. As we mentioned above, there are 16 pixel pipelines as well as six vertex pipelines which provide just about the fastest screen redraws available.

The GPU as well as the RAMDAC speed is a respectable 400 MHz. Maximum screen resolution is 2048 x 1536 with a refresh rate at 85 Hz. There is a standard VGA connection as well as DVI, and outputs include S-video, TV out, HDTV, and composite RCA.

This card runs amazingly cool considering the processing power it packs. Even at ambient temperatures of 40C, the X800XL hovers just above that temperature when idling and rarely goes about 80C when pushed to the max. Remember, this is a passively cooled card so these kind of temperatures are quite remarkable.

Because of the passive cooling, there is no fan noise on this card. If you are looking for high performance and demand silence, the X800XL fits the bill.

It takes up a bit more space than other graphic cards because of the massive heat sink and heat pipes that are part of the passive cooling system. Be prepared to allow the space of two PCI for the X800XL.

This is an excellent card for the money and will provide superb performance for serious gamers.
