Ive ben lookin around but i duno what i will be able to use for the next couple years for that amount of money.
Oright, couple of options here. I"m only presuming this is in US funds.
If you're an ATI fan, here's some options:
On the Nvidia side, I'd definatley go with the eVGA.
As for ATI, go for the PowerColor. Just remember that if overclocking is something you want to do later on, definatley go for the ATi. If not, go ahead and get the better performing 6800s.
Overall though, I'd stick with the 6800s if I were you. Don't forget that the x800s do not have shader model 3, while the 6800s do, something that will be essential for future games to come.
Only thing you have to pay attention to is DVI outputs and such. But, no worries, if that be the case, just get a converter
. Good luck.
