My System Specs

Default X800GT or 7300GT?

Just to save me some time trying both, which would be faster. I'm thinking the x800 may be faster, but it doesn't support SM3.0

(Systems an old S939 3200+ with 1GB)

I believe you're correct.

Looks like it was worse than I thought, it's a X800GT

tomshardware has a graphics card hierarchy chart that shows thex800xl as 2 or 3 levels higher in performance (depending on if the 7300gt is ddr2 or ddr3).

Edit: I see you posted as I was writing. The same chart has the x800 gt on par with the 7300 GT GDDR2 and the 7300 GT GDDR3 one step higher. So they will be relatively comparable cards I would say.

Looks like the 7300 has DDR2.

I used to own a X800XL and it's faster than a 7600GT. I now own a X850XT and I believe it's faster than a 8600GT. The only thing is that they lack SM 3.0.

I left the X800GT in it, I figured that since the drivers hadn't even been updated since it was purchased, what card was in it made little difference.
