Overclocking your X1800XT

ATI Tool Startup

To make your live simpler, ATi Tool has a built-in startup feature. To set ATi Tool to start up, click Settings again, at the bottom right of ATi Tool. Then, click the arrow next to the drop-down box. Select Startup Options.

Note that I have "When loaded via Windows Startup, exit after loading above profile." checked. I have this checked because I noticed that ATi Tool tends to make my keyboard/mouse un-responsive, or laggy at times during gameplay. This happens in CS:S, BF2, etc. It's really annoying, and costs you your life in-game many times. So, I reccomend checking that, to avoid problems. You can always fire up ATi Tool temporarily to check up on clocks, temps, etc. Once you're finished, you can close back out.

Now you're done! Enjoy your new X1K card, and have fun overclocking!

Well the cards you are comparing are not even in the same group as in price or performance wise. So it really depends on how much you want to spend. As XFX 7800GS AGP costs around 220 and Ati X700 XT versions around 70 its completely different league.

Ati X700 XT has similar performance to Nvidia 6600GT.

I know you said you dont want to change the motherboard. Considering you have A64 processor changing the motherboard will allow you much better options in GFX cards and for future compatibility.

You can buy 1 of those ASrock 939 motherboards , costs around 40 and buy a Ati X1800XT 256 mb version for 200 so total cost to u would be around 240 where as with XFX 7800 GS still costing you around 220/230 with no future and you should get better performance with Ati x1800XT.

So it truly depends on your budget.
