Default Video card recomendations?

I will be purchasing a new video card soon. I have an AGP system.

I am looking into the ATI X800 XT AiW and overclocking it

or

I am looking into the X850 XT PE

What do you recommend?


Also should I wait to see if NVidia releases the 7800 GS?

There is no 7800GS, it was a mistake from nvidia.

nVidia acidentally released some engineering samples of the experimental 7800GS to testers. According to press releases, nVidia has no plans to produce the 7800GS in either PCI-E or AGP.

Too bad... but they are having enough troubles trying to keep up with the demand for the other 7800's.
