The 8500GT might be better, since its much newer.

Does the x800 support shader model 3.0??

If it doesnt it wont play newer games like cod: waw.

Yeah shader model 3.0 is a big deal for new games, and that makes the 8500GT better.

Ha I remember when the X600XT was out and it was the shiznit. That was back when Doom 3 was all the rage and the hardest thing to run. I had a 9600SE. Sigh, the good ol' days.
