Default Which Graphics Card...


I'm new to this forum, so please take it easy on me if I say something dumb.

Anyway, I'm stuck in choosing a new graphics card. I currently have $400AUD, so my budget can go for a (my board is AGP, and if i were to change to PCI-E, it would end up costing me upwards of $550 -can't find a PCI-E board which uses AMD Athlon XP-):

MSI NX6600GT 128MB DDR3...$266
MSI NX6800 128MB.....$475
ASUS V9999/V9999GT 128MB $429/$495 (DIFFERENT SHOP)

I am aware that the 6800's shown are more than $400AUD, but I'll be able to fork out that extra money somehow.

What I'm trying to say, which card is superior out of the 6800's? Also, does anyone have different cards they recommend?

System Specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2800+
Gigabyte GA-7VM400AM-RZ
MSI GeForce FX5700 VT2DR 256MB
Seagate Barracuda IV 160GB, Seagate 60GB
400w PSU (will upgrade when I buy the video card)

There are many, many graphics card threads in this forum. Sorry for this type of welcome, but I ask that you search TF before you post.
