    Either those or a pair of 6800U's or 6600GT's as they're the only 3 PCIe video cards out atm that support SLI (ATI's next core is spose to support their version of SLI).

    Of course, I'm sorry if I implied otherwise. I just haven't found a lot of people willing to spend $800 on video cards that need another $800 - $2000 USD worth of hardware to take advantage of...

    I built the system I have now for light gaming and to last for a long time so I dont have to go and buy another one for school and stuff. The second one is coming with me to friends houses and tournements for sure.

    This is an old thread...but I needed to take use of it. My X700Pro is clearly a piece of crap for the gaming I do now :-/ and instead of making a new thread I was server-friendly and did a search. Anyways, here is the comment/question:

    I am deciding on what to do for an AGP upgrade. I can get an XFX 6800GT or an ATI X800Pro. I know nvidia has ps 3.0, but the speeds on the X800 are a bit faster. If you haven't read any other threads I've made I play BF2, Guild Wars, WC III and some other FSP games. That's pretty much all the computer is used for. I just want everyone's opinions on ATI and Nvidia.

    For pure speed, ATI kills Nvidia on AGP. The X850 XT is awesomely fast. But, the 6800GT is most definitely fast enough, and has Shader 3 which makes it a little more future proof. I love my X850, but if I had it to do all over again, I might just get the 6800 GT myself. ATI seems to have better drivers and driver support, but that may also be offset by Shader 3. I still would suggest the X800XT/X850XT over the X800PRO. Unless you get an older X800PRO VIVO that can be unlocked, it is quite a bit slower than its' big brothers. One thing I cannot argue about is the price of the X800PRO. If that is a deciding factor, it would win over the XTs and GTs. So I guess my final vote is X800PRO to save money, 6800GT if you plan on keeping it for a couple of years, and X800XT/X850XT if you are looking for the fastest AGP card currently available.

    $291.00 USD for this 6800GT AGP. I'll probably wait for newegg to drop the price some more because it is going to go down. As soon as I buy one the price will drop $5-10 the following week too. The X850s don't come in AGP and anything higher than the X800Pro is too expensive to even bother with, plus from my personal experience and reivews, ATI cards get really hot and my case is nothing special for cooling. Odds for me will probably go towards the 6800GT. I'm just going to be my cheap self and wait for prices to go down more though.
