Good price, good for 1650 generally but especially as its a 512mb version. I reckon the 7600GT 256MB from ebuyer at £54 delivered is about the same value as this, given that it generally outperforms the X1650 pro. However, you'll probably get this delivered a lot quicker!

You are probably right though there is 512mb memory on the ATI card and only 256mb on the 7600GT
interesting comparison here

oDonnyBoy - the X1650 XT is a totally different card to the X1650 Pro (has a different core) - see here. The few places that have X1650XT seem to sell them for £70 upwards, and you can get an X1950GT for the same price (£70).

I have recently added a Sapphire x1650xt to my Dell E520, cost me £75 delivered. No additional power connection needed, draws a maximum of 55w at peak from the Mobo, really pleased with its performance.

NB: Make sure what ever graphics card you buy you get the faster GDDR3 memory mot the older slower GDDR2.

I think this card from Aria has only GDDR2 memory.

looks like it, memory clock 800mhz (the gddr3 version would be 1400mhz)

Hi jah128
the bottom of the page does refer to the x1950GT but the top of the page compares the 2 referred to here - the x1650 and the 7600gt

ODonnyBoy - sorry, you are not reading the specs clearly enough.

The X1650 Pro is not the X1650 XT
The 7600 GS or GST is not the 7600 GT

Please recheck your quoted article and graphics card. It compares a X1650XT and a 7600GT, the OP is for a regular X1650 not an X1650XT, many of the other cards suggested have been 7600GSs and 7600GSTs.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/graphics/charts.html has all the cards compared but check the exact model and core/memory speeds carefully.

From the Wikipedia article:
[FONT="Courier New"]NAME CHIPSET PROCESS CORE/MEM CONFIG
X1650Pro RV530 / RV535 90 / 80 nm 600/700 4:12:4:5
X1650XT RV560 80 nm 575/690 8:24:8:8[/FONT]

Notice they are completely different chips, the key difference being the config (Texture Units:Pixel Shaders:ROPs:Vertex Shaders). The 1650XT has twice the number of texture units and pixel shaders; it outperforms a 1650PRO by 25% to 35% in most tasks (see the charts). However, also note the 7600GT typically outperforms a X1650XT, thus why I recommended it at £54 delivered.

My comment about the 1950GT was merely pointing out that the X1650XT as quoted in the article is typically priced over £70, which you can get a 1950GT at some places, thus the X1650XT doesn't represent good value for money at the moment.

Does the X1950GT go into the Dell E520 without needing a replacement PSU?
#18
BronzeMonkey - It requires additional power connector I think, so I wouldn't recommend it.

If you want to spend £40 - £50 get this card or a 7600GS etc.
If you want to spend £50 - £60 get the 7600GT

If you really want to spend more getting and uprated PSU might be a sensible option.
