Default Video Cards

k ive noticed that the Ati X1600 512mb card is selling for 179$ at my local best buy

But my ATi X700 Pro is selling there for 300$!!

Is the x700 pro better? and whys it cost so much more if its a old card and such?

BEST BUY? You mean worst buy? Their prices are the highest anywhere.
