Sapphire X800XL Ultimate Edition

@ 2005/08/01
The Sapphire bundle is really becoming sub-par. They have certainly kept up with cooling needs and pay great attention to that side of the business. The inclusion of the Component output even shows that they have a lot of care for things other than just pure gaming. That being said, they really either need to just completely dump the bundled software or get new games. Two year old software that isn't even in the most popular genre do nothing but cost people money that they would otherwise spend on more parts.
The higher price of the card due to the HSF counts against the card. However, that is offset by the potential overclocking ability of the card because of the massive heatsink. If you are looking for a solid performing card that gives you room to improve at a good price, then this is the card for you.
