Looks like the x800gt is a low to midrange card....review here:

I would say go for the powerful 6800gt.

There is no comparison between the X800GT and 6800GT. Get the 6800GT. The X800GT can barely run today's games at decent settings. The 6800GT is a beast!

Same here, plus, if you cant afford the 7800line, try flashing the 68--GT into a 6800Ultra. Nice boost

nah, just OC it up to Ultra speeds and leave the GT BIOS...too many reports (especially on lower quality cards) of them burning out after a couple months upon flashing to an Ultra BIOS because it raises the cards Vcore as well.
