Default Sapphire Radeon X800 XL video card

MSRP of $299, huh? Yeah, right. That's a joke! Big time! I like to think of MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price) as the high point when it comes to actual retail pricing. Video cards prove that wishful thinking wrong all the time, but ATi's new kid on the block - the X800 XL - is selling for much higher than its announced MSRP. We all knew this card would rock (or rather violently shake) the successful NVIDIA 6800 GT boat if it really hit streets at $300. That's not happening though...try adding $100 to the MSRP. What was looking like a dead-on, hands-down lock for best-bang-for-the-buck glory is now on a more even playing field.

At a street price of $400 though, the X800 XL makes for a great competitor for the similarly priced 6800 GT, which is exactly what it's meant to do. Does it make a great competitor as far as performance is concerned though? We have a Sapphire Radeon X800 XL here to find out.

In europe (.de) these cards sell for 300euro (powercolor + Club3D) . Thats about 70 or more euros cheaper then the 6800GT .
