Come on, save your money a little bit longer and grab yourself a 6800 GS.

I have an earlier version of that card (the board is blue and the heatsink wasn't so phatty) and it's great. But I'm not sure I'd spend that much on a card for an AGP 4X motherboard. You may want to save up for a new motherboard with PCI express instead of AGP, unless you have an intel socket 478 processor, since there aren't any socket 478 motherboards with PCI express.

EDIT: Apollo seems to be a good company, by the way.
