Default 8500gt or a x800 xt

ok like the title says 8500gt or a x800 xt. which one performs better. my friend has my old 8500gt and he wants to play fallout 3 on med settings. would my other friends x850 xt be better or is the 8500gt better? i would have given him my x 1900xtx but that is dead along with my 6800ultra. so those are his only options, because he has no cash right now.

hmm, would it play fallout 3 on med settings at like 1024x768? would you be willing to let that x1900xtx go?

looks like the the x800 xt would be significantly better, has way more bandwidth but it a very old card compared to the 8500gt hard to say. either way looks like u might have to play on low settings.
