Yeah, don't get the X800XT P.E. Although it does well with current games, it doesn't include Pixel Shader 3, which will be needed for many future games including an enhanced HDR mod for the Source engine. Go with Nvidia this round...the 6800 GT is a good card.

I said it works great for all current games. It will start having problems when games become more Pixel Shader 3.0 reliant.

All 6800s have Pixel Shader 3.0, and while ATI fans won't mention this, PS3.0 IS the wave of the future, and the ATI cards that are pwning PS2.0 games will be sent to their knees later this year when PS3.0 becomes more of a standard, while the current 6800s and even 6600s will cruise along smoothly.

I wouldn't suggest sparkle as a brand if you were to go with the 6800GT, everyone knows I'd suggest eVGA though

Yes that is the comp beedubs using azn

I am using an ATI X800 Pro, but I have had such a bad experience with it that I have abandoned ATI and my next card will be an Nvidia. And I will need to get that soon because I want to be able to play the new "Lost Coast" mod for HL2, which won't be playable on any current ATI.
