AGP-Geforce 6800 or 6800GT
PCI-E- I would say Geforce 7800GTX
Geforce gives you more bang for your buck in my opinion

some of us actually were on budgets with crappy x700's... come on guys... I only had a hundred bucks! x700's aren't THAT bad. I can play CoD2.

I'm happy with my 32 meg video card serves me fine and the best part is it was under 20 bucks. I just never will understand why people buy 500 USD video cards instead of building a new PC.
