Yepp, that pretty much says what I was saying.

Good call on the heatsink.

When I reccomend Products, I don't assume they will overclock and someone even said the 850 is slightly better the 6800, so slighty better is still better.

The X850XTPE is better in older, DX8 games, which are being played less and less. It can't touch Nvidia in newer DX9 and OpenGL games. Thats what I said. Nvidia really got their DX9 support perfected with the GeForce 6800 series, after the disaster it was with the GeForce FX cards.
