Default gfx card comparison

how does the best 9800 series (XT is it?) compare to my x800gto? my friend has one, and says he can max out some games that i cannot. (i.e. trackmania nations, NFSMW)

i'm trying to get him to run a 3dmark but he hasnt gotten round to it.

The X800GTO is better than the 9800XT.

Yes, but the X1600XT, X1800GTO, 6800GS and 7600GT or are all in the same price range or so and would perform quite better.

Your friend is a lier, go bust his lip with a bowling ball. Heh I know what you are talking about, theres always people making these kinds of claims, like my friend who plays doom 3 at 1600x1280 on a 9600 pro. It DOES work but the FPS is total crap, mine could do that with more fps but they refuse to acknowledge that my card is faster, oh well who cares.

A+ certified.
I now am on the interweb:
