I woudln't call the 7800gs AGP a budget card. It's so overpriced for the performance it gets because it's AGP and it is the best card available.

Instead of the 7300's which I haven't heard great things about for gaming, I would replace them with a 6800gs or 6600gt.

yeah i was going to ask where the 6800gs fit into that list.. I'm just not too familiar with the 7xxx series..i have a 6600gt now but im building another system shortly. Is the 6800gs the best card for the price? if not, link me an alternative from newegg.

I think they stopped making them. The 7600GT is faster and much cheaper than the 6800GS so there is no point in buying it.
