    and thats just a cut down version of a x850. its still only got 12 pipes mate and it isnt worth the upgrade imho. unless your going to pcie and even then you might be able to get a better card.

    Still has 12 pipes. It would be very slightly quicker than your card.

    If you want 16 pipes then you could go for this ....
    PowerColor ATI Radeon X850 XT 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-037-PC) Price: £134.95 (£158.57 Including VAT at 17.5%)
    * This would be faster than your current card & is very well priced.

    or

    PowerColor ATI Radeon X800 GTO16 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-055-PC) Price: £109.95 (£129.19 Including VAT at 17.5%)
    * This card has 16 pipes (as apposed to 12 on standard GTO cards). This card is essentially an X800XL & thus would be slightly faster than your X800Pro but may be overclocked to X850XT PE speeds.
