This is my system
Dell Dimension 3000
Intel pentium 4
2.8 GHZ 512 RAM
windows XP (sp2)
Intel extreme graphics 2 onboard video
The video card im trying to install is a
Radeon X800 PCI series
When I try to disable the video card it seems to only reset my graphics settings to 8 bit and 800 x 600 resolution, I've looked at other posts here about the Intel extreme graphics 2 and I know that it will consistently try to reinstall its driver if uninstalled. My ATI Catalyst software will not install itself for some reason. I put in the disc and it goes through the installation process, aburptly stops but it doesn't install any ATI things onto the computer, when I look in my control panel afterwards there are no ATI things in there whatsoever.
I know this video card works and everything cause it was working in my other dimension 3000 even before I disabled the onboard video on that computer it allowed the ATI software to be on the computer. I tried getting the latest drivers from ATI but when trying to install them it pops up a message saying
"Setup was unable to find components that can be installed under your current hardware or software configurations. Please make sure you have the right required hardware or software"
what does that mean? Im not sure what hardware or software I may be missing...
any idea as to what I should do? Thanks in advance!
I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system
It's worked out well for many of us in the past.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)
You may need microsoft .net framework 1.1 which is on the ati site as well as microsoft's!!!!Read other 4 answers
Hi my name is James
I am running a Dell dimension 2400 with 256mb ram, celeron processer 2.4 ghz and Intel extreme graphics, and 40 gb hdd and the rest.
I just brought a 256 mb PCI card made by powercolor, built with radeon 9200 technology. Not pci express just straight PCI
Followed the instructions, pluged card in, turned on computer,go into the device manager and i get a yellow
"!" mark with the code 12 error against my card.
Uninstalled onboard intel extreme graphics controller, its model thing is ...
Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller it has 64mb of video ddr ram
Um well as soon as i uninstalled it and rebooted, windows would automactically recongise it again and then yeah. it would become default.
So i disabled it and now its outta use. yay =)
I am currently running off the default windows vgasave graphics thing and i still have the error code 12 on my radeon.
I have installed catallyst, downloaded specific drivers from the powercolor site, installed those and i get either
TUL corporation, RADEON 9200 SERIES ver. 22.214.171.124 [5/3/2006]
just the plain
RADEON 9200 SERIES ver. 126.96.36.199 [5/3/2006]
Well i am using the plain Radeon 9200 series driver ^
And have tried both with no luck.
I read somewhere that i should not use the microsoft drivers
so i steered clear.
Then i saw that I should try adjusting the agp apeture in the bios setup.
To have it under 64mb.
I dont even have a agp slot!! but it couldnt hurt.

Did u try to install the latest Catalyst drivers? The latest Catalyst drivers do not have support for the 9200 series of video cards. U will have to use Catalyst 6.5, which is the latest one for ur card. Here is the link.
To play games on my pc, I have to turn up the brightness in my video card settings so I can see what the hell I am doing. So I updated my driver the other day, fix the color like I usually do, but when I start any full screen game, the color scheme reverts back to the default which as I said is way to dark.
Is there any way to fix this without having to revert back to outdated drivers?

I currently have intels integrated exteme graphics on my computer, i have purchased and currently being shipped a ATI radeon 9200 PCI, Will any problems arise from this, how should i fix any error, and is this possible to be done? Thank you -jarrett
Normally this is a pretty basic upgrade.It has been my experience ,that it is wise to switch your VGA drivers to Standard windows VGA drvers first and reboot .Then Shut down ,install your card . When you start up again go direct to your CMOS setup and disable onboard graphics and then save exit.
Windows should recognize the card for driver install on that last restart.
Please read your installation guide in case there is any issues to be aware of , and if there is any procedure I did not mention.

I just picked up an HP dx2000 desktop computer that has the "Intel Extreme Graphics 2" onboard video card. Im trying to play World of Warcraft on the machine and it is a bit jumpy due to what I assume is the graphics card. The system has 1Gb of RAM so I dont believe it has anything to do with the RAM.
My question is, will my system benifit from a PCI graphics card or is the bus too slow for PCI to show any type of improvement? The only reason I say PCI is because the system does not have an AGP slot.

I want to get my parents an LCD for their Dell PC. The PC is using Intel Extreme onboard graphics which claims to support resolutions of:
350 MHz DAC for 1800x1440 @ 85Hz max CRT resolution or [email protected] max FP resolution
However, here is what I found for supported resolutions:
1024 x 768, 16M colors (60, 70, 75, 85, 100,120 Hz)
1152 x 864, 16M colors (60, 70, 75, 85, 100 Hz)
1280 x 1024, 16M colors (60, 75, 85, 100 Hz)
1600 x 1200, 16M colors (60 Hz)
1920 x 1440, 64K colors (60, 75 Hz)
2048 x 1536, 64K colors (60 Hz)
Those may be for CRT and maybe not for LCD. I just don't want to buy the monitor and have it not work.
Just get an LCD and a cheapo graphics card for like $30. Get like a X300 or Geforce 6200 or something. They are cheap, and support resolutions of up to 2560x1600 at full 16m color instead of crappy 64k. Also, they come with a VGA and a DVI output (DVI is for LCDs and that intel graphics card doesn't have DVI) so it will work.
Is this video card sufficient to run SIMS games? I am thinking of purchasing a Dell with this card installed.
It should run it if you get a processor(preferably a pentium 4 instead of a celeron) that's above 2ghz.
Neither intel extreme 2 or sis mirage2 are good at games. I have integrated intel extreme 2 graphics in my one system. If I use it I get a score of about 4,000 points on aquamark3(about 4 frames per second, a real slideshow), but when I use my nvidia 6600 graphics card I get about 40,000 points, (about 40frames per second, a reasonable rate). The 6600 128mb is about 10X as fast as intel extreme2. The 6600 costs about $110 usd. You need an agp or pci-express port to use the graphics card though, which most cheap dell systems don't have(they can't be upgraded cheaply).
Hello every one, I'm having a problem. I want to install a better graphics card to my compaq presario 2223US notebook. It has intel extreme graphics 2 which isn't very good with new 3D games. I heard it was very hard to remove and may not be removable at all. Is it possible to remove it? all answers are thanked.
Well intel extreme graphics 2 is a chip built into the motherboard so you can't remove it but you can dissable it in bios allowing the instalation of a seperate video card.
However most notebooks don't have slots for video card upgrades so chances are you won't be able to upgrade your video card.
I am thinking of buying a new computer, and I have found a good price for one. However, I don't know wheather it will run the games that I want it to.
It has Intel extreme graphics intergrated graphics card, and I would like to know if this will run WoW for the minimum. It has directX support and it says that it can run 3D games.

Hopefully it has an agp expansion slot so you can install a decent graphics card, but sadly many computers with intel extreme graphics completely lack this slot, and hence are stuck with very low end graphics.
I just replaced my Radeon 9600SE 128MB graphics card with a Radeon X800 GTO (AGP) 256MB card from Palit. With the old card I had no problems running FarCry or Half Life but problems running FEAR, hence the upgrade.
I am now having troubles running all games. They will all load to certain stage and then the screen goes black and I get the message ?entering sleep mode? and the machine locks. I did have some early success with getting FarCry and FEAR going but as soon as I use some of the weapons that cause a flash the screen goes black and I get the sleep message and the machine locks up.

Intel Extreme Graphics 2 XGA 1280x800 support?
Hi, im new here and i really have searched hard for many weeks to resolve this issue to no avail. I will be very impressed if someone can help.
Im having problems with intel 855gme graphics drivers (Intel extreme graphics 2) on my clevo M12CW/M121W/M120W (4 yrs old, XGA 1200x800) and dont know where to turn.
The basic driver that came with the computer, regularily when i open a browser window or video window, the screen goes stripey grey. Everything seems to be fine underneath as i can shut down with no problems but no screen until i reboot.
I installed the latest drivers (and tried those inbetween to no avail) and this seems to overcome this problem but there seems to be no support for XGA resolution.
The new driver says in display>settings that monitor is digital flat monitor 1280 x 1024, but my screen is 1280 x 800 (XGA) and there is no option to change that. The only resolution that is usable is 1280 x 768, which fits the screen, but the text and icons are slightly distorted.
Ive searched all driver sites, intel drivers and the give the same driver for the GM and GME.
Is there any other drivers i could possible use for this resolution or is there one i can't find.

Have you thought about getting an add-on AGP or PCI HD ready video card?
currently im using a SiS graphic card. but i want to use an intel extreme 2 graphic card, but it wont let me install and it always says something about INF files when i try to install or corrupt / missing files..
SiS lags my games and i think its worse than intel
But i read on the INTEL site that the intel drivers wouldnt install if there was a PCI (?) on my computer. i have no idea what this is but can someone tell me how to uninstall it?
i just got my pc fixed from a local shop too.. pics below
if anyone can help me id appreciate it!!!btw i am on Windows xp PRO
Intel Extreme Graphics aren't a graphics card- but instead integrated graphics chipsets. This means your system must already have integrated Intel graphics on the motherboard. As you've stated, you already have SiS integrated.. so which one does your mainboard have? You can't just install the Intel drivers and have it "change" the integrated graphics chip your system has. You'll get the INF error if you try to install Intel Extreme Graphics on a system without this chipset on it.
If you can provide your system stats, this would be helpful for providing advice on what you need to do. Neither SiS nor Intel integrated graphics are very good or supported for many 3D games, so it's highly recommended you consider upgrading to a new videocard and disabling the on-board/integrated graphics entirely.
Hi, I just got a Dell Dimension 3000 computer that has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 and no AGP slot. I was thinking of buying a 128MB or 256MB Nvidia/ATI PCI video card to improve gaming performance.
My computer's specs are: P4 3.0Ghz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache and 256MB DDR PC3200 RAM.
Do you think I would get any tangible, noticeable improvements in video playback quality and gaming performance? Or will the slowness of PCI just negate any benefits of the better video card?
If there are noticeable benefits to upgrading, which should I choose, the 128MB or the 256MB?
Thanks, I'd appreciate any help you could give me!

If your computer has an "on-board" Intel display adapter and uses the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 drivers, version 14.2(188.8.131.5292) was released today to replace version 14.1(184.108.40.20662).
After installing the new version and rebooting, my HP N5495 laptop with Windows XP refused to go beyond a black screen. I went into safe mode and reinstalled it, then rebooted again, but still no luck. I went into safe mode a second time and attempted to roll back to the old version, but the rollback function did not work. I went into safe mode a third time and installed the old version(which I always save), then rebooted. Everything returned to normal.

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I'm seeking help to setup dual monitors with my new ATI RADEON 9250 from NewEgg. I have an AOPEN motherboard with an onboard graphics card (Intelr Extreme Graphics Driver 6.13.01.3510). I came upon this thread and I saw he had trouble installing his ATI card. I read that, and I went to Device Manager and I disabled the Intel controller. Then I shut off my computer and installed my ATI card without any problems. I booted up the computer and installed the drivers successfully. But I had one problem - dual monitors. I wanted to set up one monitor hooked up to my onboard intel card and one monitor to my ATI card. When I clicked properties on my desktop > settings, under the display I saw *screenshot 1* (attachment) I was hoping to see Intel and ATI but instead I saw 2 ATI. Now I know that on the ATI card theres a secondary plug for a second monitor but you need an adapter to it. The adapter would be my second way out, the first way out is to set up the second monitor to the Intel onboard card. When I went to device manager, I only saw 2 ATIs, the Intel disappeared. I tried installing drivers again but it gave me an error.. *screenshot 2* shows what I just said.

I have downloaded the disk needed and added it to the OS iso file and burned it to a cd to have it with the install. I point it to the right dir, but it keeps popping up saying the same thing. What's weird is when I select the file it asks for, it says I am installed a driver that has not been approved of microsoft and so I press yes. but it goes back to asking for the installation disk.
Anyone have any ideas? If anything, I just want to back up the files and format it and run a new install.

But its brown, and is to the right of the other slots
You cannot put a PCI-Express video card into a PCI slot or an AGP slot. You have likely received the wrong card for that system.
You will need to return the card and get the AGP 4x/8x version.

flcph2015 Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the situation is that you should not have done the Win10 Upgrade. Their Upgrade tool does a really poor job of detecting switchable graphics prior to the updrade, and as a result, folks like you end up with machines that are no longer fully functional. Same thing happened to me. With switchable graphics, the only working drivers come from the OEMs that make the machines, because the hardware is customized, so to have to be the drivers. MS does not supply these drivers, nor do the video card makers. So, without HP Win10 drivers for your PC, you're stuck with only two outcomes:1) Keep Win10 and struggle with the graphics problem2) Return your PC to the original OS. I chose the second because I prefer a PC with an older OS where everything worked, to a PC with a new OS, where some things do not work.Read other 5 answers
I just reformatted a Samsung laptop and am trying to get it all loaded and patched back up again. The laptop has a AMD Radeon HD 7400M graphics adapter. So after getting it up and running (at a low resolution obviously), I downloaded and installed the latest AMD graphics driver w/ the Catalyst Control Center thingy. Now the display is at the native 1600x900, but Device Manager shows both the AMD graphics adapter and Intel HD Graphics 3000 adapter.
Why are there two listed? I tried removing the Intel adapter earlier and the display went all wonky back to the previous 1024x768 resolution.
I'm the type of computer user who likes to get rid of stuff that's not needed. So are both graphics adapters really needed?
The two graphics systems are needed to support the hybrid system used on many of today's laptops, the Intel is used for general low graphics intensive applications and the AMD is used for certain higher requirements such as games. The purpose of the dual system is to conserve power when possible and only use the power for the HQ graphics when it is actually neededRead other 4 answers

Please help me this laptop is new and im so scared something happened to the AMD card
Marko91 HP laptops, especially the older Win7 machines, often came with two different graphics chips -- and Intel and then, either an AMD or Nvidia. This was known as Switchable Graphics or Hybrid Graphics. You ran using the Intel chip most of the time, but when you needed extra graphics power, like in Gaming, the PC automatically switched over to using the AMD or Nvidia graphics chip.Problem is, this requires special graphics drivers to work, and while those came preinstalled on the Win7 laptops, those drivers simply do not exist for Win10. Those drivers are not available from Intel, AMD, or Nvidia. A way to tell if your PC has two different graphics chips is to look in Device Manager under Display Adapters. If there are two different adapters listed, one Intel and one AMD/Nividia, then you have this problem -- and if you force an upgrade to Win10, you will have serious graphics problems and your machine will not work. Please follow these directions to find the detailed product number for your laptop: Finding Your HP Product Model Number | HP® Customer Support With that information, I can see if there are HP Win10 vide drivers for your laptop. We can proceed once you provide the information.ThanksRead other 1 answers

I have a Lenovo G50-80 laptop, which is less than a month old. It came with Windows 8.1 and had a free upgrade to Windows 10. It ran fantastically except I still preferred Windows 7 - I did a clean install.
The problem is my graphics card. When I had Windows 10, in the dxdiag page I had the following tabs:System
Basically on the Display tab, the Intel HD Graphics 5500 is displayed and on the Render tab, I had the AMD Radeon HD 8500M.
Now that I downgraded to Windows 7 (installed all updates including SP1), the Render tab is no longer there.
I have checked the device manager and saw both cards listed and active with no errors.
I did the following:Updated Drivers for both Intel and AMD graphics
Uninstalled all graphic drivers and reinstalled Intel first then AMD
Changed the settings on the AMD graphics controller to Maximum Performance on the game I am playing
I do not know what I am missing here.
I am really looking forward to a solution.

Your PC is a desktop, not a notebook. Desktop PCs do not have switchable graphics. That is a high-end notebook feature. The Omen 15 has it. When a video card is installed, the Intel HD graphics is disabled and the video you have is proviided by the video card only. Which specific games did you try to run? There is a website called Can I run it? that willl give you a report on the hardware in your PC and specific gameshttp://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri If your PC won't run specific games it could be because of the entry level graphics and Intel CPU that is installed in the motherboard. Your desktop PC is not meant for gaming. It is an entry level productivity desktop PC.Read other 3 answers

I have an HP Pavilion g6 1202tx. I have all my games switched to high performance in dynamic mode using catalyst control center. One day when I opened game settings in pes 14 game launcher and opened specs tab, I saw that under my GPU was written Intel(R) HD Graphics Family (PS5.0/VS5.0) and not AMD, with a Bad rating beside it. So, surely pes 14 is using Intel(R) HD Graphics Family (PS5.0/VS5.0) as GPU and not AMD. And this may be the reason for poor performance of all my games(L.A Noire runs with 11 fps even in the lowest settings,
GTA 4 with 20 fps in lowest settings). You can get specs for my laptop by googling HP Pavilion g6 1202tx. Also,
is fixed graphics mode better than dynamic mode?
It's all about the power profile mode you're using. If it's set to balanced, your laptop will swap GPUs that will depend on the application. If it's set to High-Performance, it will only use a dedicated GPU (if there's any). If it's set to low-power state then it'll only use the integrated ones.Read other 1 answers

I am considering buying a new laptop (both are HP) and was hoping to get an answer to which processor would better suit me..I don't game a whole ton, so no worries in that. I'm looking for the best bang for the buck and the one that will last the most. They both are roughly the same price out the door with tax.
Core i7 Intel? HD Graphics 4400 or AMD A8-Series AMD Radeon HD 8210 which is going to be better in the long run.
Thank you all,
the intel graphics are onboard and the amd is an add-on board.. in case of failure - the amd is replacableRead other 4 answers
I hope everybody can help this.
This morning, i upgraded my Intel HD Graphics 3000 because some programs force me to update it. But, I don't know why, after restaring my laptop, I see that the graphics has changed from Radeon to HD Graphics. You know, HD Graphics is only have 64 MBs of its RAM. Different far away from my Radeon that has 1024 MBs of RAM.
And when I try to playing some games, it says, "Your Graphics card doesn't meet the system requirement". It is very sucks. And then, checking the Device Manager it doesn't show my Radeon graphics anymore.
I want to change my graphics back to Radeon, but can't. I've tried every step from the internet and still not work. There is no message something like this in my desktop: "Switchable Graphics Driver". And every start, the Catalyst Control Center says: "Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics card. Please update your AMD graphics driver or enable your AMD adapter using Displays Manager.". I have followed this from internet:
Click "Control Panel."
Click "Change Display Settings."
Click "Advanced Settings."
Click the "Adapter" tab. Select the ATI adapter from the list on screen. Click "Properties."
Click the "Driver" tab.
Click "Enable" to enable the ATI ad... Read more

Hi, my laptop is overheating and wasting power because it is always running my ATI Radeon mobility graphics card. I have switchable graphics, and I want the computer to ALWAYS start up using Intel HD graphics.
I cannot find ANY settings to make Intel HD the default graphics card.
I have tried uninstalling ATI radeon graphics card. It always reinstalls AND SWITCHES to it on startup.
How can I make Intel HD the primary graphics card(PREFERRED), or completely remove ATI radeon so it never reinstalls the drivers after I have uninstalled it?
There would be an option in your BIOS to disable/enable onboard graphic chip. Also look for something along the lines 'Init Display first' (though these differ bios to bios) and select 'Onboard' or similar equivalent option.
You can also disable your radeon card through Device manager. Open Start menu, type 'Device Manager' and select it from the list displayed. Look for the card>right click>disable.
If unsure, post a screenshot and we'll work you out through the steps.
Alright so I've got a serious problem here, my manufacturer which is ASUS in my case will NOT be supporting this graphcis card or the computer itself so I'm left out in the dark.
I have tried with everything and I came to the conclusion that modded drivers works the best which still is pretty bad(switchable Graphics profiles are not saved - Adding Photoshop for example today results that in a week it will be wiped out and the performance will be zero)
The generic AMD drivers does not work, the HP drivers works 50-50, I can Control Everything with switchable Graphics
except for the manual program adding and the modded leshcat drivers are not of my liking.
Considering the fact that AMD supports ENDURO on the whole Radeon HD 7000M series I would expect it to work on the generic drivers.
So if anyone got anything that could help my situation I would gladly hear you out.
I'm thinking that using the modded drivers will be my last desperate move.
P.S. I'm also not using the newest Intel Drivers as they are reported to cause problems
Sorry for bumping but is there anyone that can help with this?Read other 8 answers
So hey everyone, I'm kind of a complete noob, but I need some help. I recently (like 30 min. ago) bought a Radeon 9250 PCI vid card. I was desperate for some kind of upgrade, and this looked pretty good and fit requirements as far as I could tell. Anyways I was trying to replace my relatively crappy "Extreme" graphics 3D crap that came integrated with my PC. So I followed all the instructions throughout the box and thought I would finally be able to see Master Chief in all his iradescent green glory, when I hit a roadblock. Nothing had changed. It was still running the same way. I poked around in the device manager and found the secion where my graphics stuff was. It listed my Extreme Graphics 3D, my Radeon, and Radeon (secondary). All of them were enabled. So I thought "hey, I'll just disable the Extreme and all my dreams will come true!" So I did, and it told me to restart. Once it was booted back up again, everything was really big, really pixely, and there were very few colors displaying. I tried changing the settings in Properties, but that changed nothing. Eventually I just enabled my old crap and things went back to normal. Please help me! Thanks
Hello and welcome to techspot.
Do you mean Intel Extreme Graphics?
generally we know what are the steps, like:
1. Uninstall and the drivers in device manager, DISABLE it then
2. Turn off
3. Insert the GPU card
4. Disable the IGP (Ext Graphics) in BIOS one more time
5. Install the ATI / nVidia software and device drivers (i.e catalyst)
i know you have do the abovelisted method, but i didn't see above that you have install the ati drivers AFTER disabling EG.
Big pixel and few colors probably 640x480 (default) and 256 colours, and it's the default your gpu could produce w/o a proper driver. for example, in a safemode (which the driver are turned off), my MR9700 also use 640x480 with 256 colours as the drivers are OFF.
so, i think you might consider taking a REINSTALLATION one more time and if the problem persists, please write your COMPLETE system specs so that it will help other TSmembers to help you
((thx fin3st for what i've forgot, ive edit em))
I bought a HP Elite 8460p notebook, and it comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000 and a dedicated AMD Radeon HD 6470M.
It came preinstalled with Windows 7. And I quickly removed it and installed Windows 8.1 pro from scratch, I formed that hard drive, but not the recovery drive.
After I installed with 8.1 I noticed that the dedicated graphics card was not installed and the drivers aren't there. I tried Snappy Driver Installer, I tried the driver from HP for it. I've even tried suggested route from hp's forum, AMD Radeon HD 6470m Driver for Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit -"Hp ... - HP Support Forum - 3073197
But I am unable to find those two drivers with those versions anywhere listed on the HP forum where some users state that that technique/solution does work.
I'm not sure what todo, I really don't want to go to Windows 7. As I have purchased Windows 8.1 Professional.
I've ran speccy, and it does not show a second graphics card. I see no options anywhere on this computer for switchable graphics, and I do not see anything in device manager installed or missing.
Can someone please help me out?
The link is to the HP Support page with Win8.1 drivers for your PC. I would install the Chipset drivers (because they probably include the Intel video drivers, as well) and the AMD video drivers: Drivers & Software for HP EliteBook 8460p Notebook PC - HP Support Center.Read other 3 answers

Hi Nazbir and Welcome to SevenForums
I have two questions, 1. are you overclocking the CPU, if so bring it back to original spec. 2. are you overclocking the RAM, is it one stick of 2GB or 2 sticks of 1GB, do the part #'s match exactly. These things all make a difference when your trying to make it work. Hope this helps sort things out and if you need more help just ask.
Ive decided after reading dozens of reviews to go for the ATI chip, its smaller, lighter, draws less power, is cheaper, a LOT cheaper, and for only a little bit less powerful than the GeForce 6, i think its going to be more popular.
1 quick question, all of these companies are going to manufacture the X800 Pro/XT onto their own board.
MSI Computer Corp.
I have preference towards the ASUS Model
But when will they be ready to buy? This week? Nexx Week? Next Month? 3 Months? I have this money burning a hole in my pocket, and it must be sent asap
Here in the US, Best Buy has a estimated shipping date of 6/15-6/21/2004 on the X800XT Platinum Edition, and 5/24-6/2/2004, on the X800 Pro, $500 and $400. But you know how these things usually go.
i am think of buying a radeon x800 in a little while and i was wondering what ppl here thought about it
is that jus X800? no GT, GTO, XL?
get the 6800GS if not, the 7600GT which is dropping in price FAST.. those two are way better than the X800 and its prolly cheaper =P
