Hey guys, i need your help one more time with video cards, i need help deciding between these: ATI Radeon X800 256MB 256BIT -$237.00 nVIDIA Geforce 6600GT 256MB 128BIT -$233.00 nVIDIA Geforce 6800 128MB 256BIT -$189.00 There all AGPx8 cards that are in my price range and i should have enough power for any of them, i think the 6600GT i had originally wanted is out of the question now. I'm really leaning towards the X800 since it has 256MB video memory and its 256 bit with a 67Mhz faster core speed. what do you guys think? I'm probaby gonna be placing my order later tonight so any input would help.

I would get the 6800 but since the ATI is 256mb get the ATI unless you can find a 6800 256mb...
Ok i've decided to get the X800, any guesses on how something like Battlefield 2 will run with the X800, 2.8Ghz Pentium 4, and 1GB Dual channel ram? one more question, which drivers should i download? the ATI Catalyst or the Omega drivers?. the reason i'm asking is because the Omega Drivers made the image quality horrible on my Geforce FX.

well, ATI got it right with the new Cat's...but OMEGA is taking the new cats and optimizing them for games...so id get the ATI's until they release the new omegas...thats what im doing

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.well, ATI got it right with the new Cat's...but OMEGA is taking the new cats and optimizing them for games...so id get the ATI's until they release the new omegas...thats what im doing
Ok sounds good, i just ordered my X800 256mb from newegg so i should have it in 3-5 days, i can't wait to dump my Geforce FX5200!!!! :D when i get it i'll post some Aquamark 3, 3DMark01, 3DMark03, and maybe 3DMark05 scores (if i ever get it downloaded).
