    High Dynamic Range rendering. Screenshots (without/with) from Half Life 2 and Far Cry respectively:

    Nice but how come the ati x800 doesn't have this feature? If it does it doesn't let me using it in the game.

    Most HDR implementations in games require Shader Model 3.0 support on the video card. The X800 only has Shader Model 2.0. The game developers can deal with that (HL2, for example, should do HDR on your card), but don't have to.
