    6800GS is probably the best bang for the buck with AGP.

    Actually the X1600 Pro is quite comparable in that department. Although slower, it's also cheaper. If a 6800GS is out of your price range, an X1600 Pro would be a good choice.

    if i am not mistaken the x1600 pro and the 6800 gs only had a 5% performance difference between the two in favor of ati. in my most humble opinion, i personally like nvidia solely because of the drivers. i find that their driver support is significantly better than ati's...and i believe that that 5% could easily be given up for better hardware support.

    A 6800GS is almost identical to a 6800GT or Ultra and it's better than either with overclocking and it's much cheaper. You'd have to be crazy to buy either for over $200 when 6800GS top out around $190.

    dude identical?lets see

    6800GS(fast)=12 pipes 3dmark 05 = ?6800(gs?) says 3,564..lil faster then 6600gt...wow?

    6800gt(way faster)=16 pipes 3dmark 05 =4,790

    6800ultra(fastest if u can find 1)=16 pipes 3dmark 05 =5,218

    enough said,read many,many posts guys are desperatly failing to unlock the gs to all 16 pipes,hmmm whys that?another thing,card companys disable pipes becasue the extra pipes failed ,and they lower the price and sell them as differnt model.yeah i wanna unlock broken pipes? spend another $40-$50 for a card that has true\tested 16 full pipes 6 vertex shaders(gt has 5)ummmm k save your$50 and hate yourself after u buy it.man i glad im hear to help,im not gonna let this dude think that a gt\ultra are identical to a gs,lmao man plz stop doing this to these ppl.notice s before t as in gs.then gt?this kid is gonna buy that gs and be on here in a week like"kjblblhblknb lkb"shoulda spent the $40-$50 more.u get what u pay for.having another 4 pipes is like 25 percent boost overall fps,benchmarking(3dmark etc)there not the same!!!.dont worry guys im here.plz ask me.

    stay away from the 512MB version of the x1600 pro unless you just need the extra video RAM, why well its clocked a lot slower than on the 256MB card. i think its 800mhz GDDR3 256bit vs. 540mhz GDDR2 128bit. the extra video RAM does make Windows Vista run better with all the Aero/Glass eye candy turned on.

    DUDE, then different reveiws of different manufacturers give different results. the gs is apparantly incredibly overclockable.
    also, you say nvidia have "the way its meant to be played" youre right, but its the developers that talk to nvidia, not vice versa. that way, the developers get the most out of nvidia as well.

    i never said the 6800gs is not overclockable,i know it is,unlocking pipes is the problem.and its meant to be played on nvidia because the guys at nvidia talk to game developers alot more then ati,cause canada is well in canda and in the states is were most games are made.notice ati is always last to catch up with newest games and driver support,lol?nvidia never has driver issues with games,mabye 5-10 years ago.THIS IS DIRECTLY OUT OF MY BF2 NEWEST 1.2..1 PATCH FILE RELEASE SUPPORT LOG FILE.

    KNOWN ISSUE
    ATI CROSSFIRE CARDS
    - Crossfire cards with 256 Megs of memory, running in CrossFire mode will run out of memory at very high resolution settings.
    On very high resolutions, such as 1920x1440 with 6x antialiasing. In CrossFire mode the ATI drivers are more restrictive
    about where resources are allocated, and as a result run out of memory sooner than with a single board. This running out of memory causes
    the device context creation to fail. The result is that the game just sits in a loop with a black screen. If you experience a context creation failure
    change your resolution to a lower setting (e.g. 1024x768 or even lower).

    hmmmm nothing about nvidia there i see?nvidia was side by side with ea and dice the whole time and currently during bf2 progress.ati was trying to overclock that r580 core,lol.and they made a nice x1900xtx tho,to bad it cant handle hi resolutions.
