6800 GT wipes the floor with the X800XT, but the 6800GT in AGP isn't really available anymore. Go for the 6800GS AGP. Everybody is loving the 6800GS right now and you will not regret that decision. Don't even consider an X800 series card, they were a complete failure on ATI's part.

Note, Wrong forum. Thanks, though. I saw the 6800GT on newegg, and was thinking about it. Thanks, this just keeps me from having to make another thread.

P.S. You posted right before I mirked the thread.

Neither. spend the $400 to go towards a new motherboard, new RAM, and a new CPU. if your still usign AGP 4x, than that means your using old parts, probably later P3's and earlier Athlons. i'm guessing in the 800MHz to 1.4GHz range. An X800 or a 6800 will do little good because the rest of your system won't be able to keep up.

If you use that $400 to go towards an entry level PCI-E system with say, 1GB of RAM, a sempron or an Athlon 64 3000, a X800GT, 6800 vanilla, 6800GS, or a 6600GT, it will perform faster than your current system with an X800 or a 6800, garunteed.

I have 1 GB of RAM, and a stock 1.7 Celeron.
Anyway, here was what I was going to get, a AGP/PCI-E 939 Socket Mobo, a 3500+ Venice, and a 6800GT.

you'll want to go PCI-E and a 6800GS. the 6800GS is about as fast, and $100 cheaper.
