Default Best AGP Card

Sorry if this has been posted before, I was just wondering which is the very very best AGP Graphics Card out there. The best one i could find was this one http://www.powercolor.com/main_product_detail.asp?id=66 (which is a X850 and probably the one im going to get if there arent any better ones).

Im looking for the best performance and the 6800 has a lower clock-speed and less pixel-pipelines...

No, the 6800GS is newer than the Geforce 7 family, which is newer than the X850 series.

Even though I am more partial towards nVidia, the x850 PE is the better card. I would wait and see what happens with the 7800GS though, but if you absolutely want to spend the money right now, the x850 is your best bet.

all you need to do is unlock the pipelines and OC it....then it will be faster than the 6800Ultra
