The main factor that kills the X1600XT is the 128-bit memory, if it had 256-bit memory it would make mince meat of the 6800GS, but unfortunately it does not.

Is this for AGP or PCI express? How much are you willing to spend?

Ok, here is probably your best deal:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130271
A 6800GS for $179, with an instant $10 rebate, and a 15$ mail in rebate on top of that. This brings the price to $154. It is also factory overclocked and the warranty is lifetime and covers overclocking.

EDIT:
You are not in the USA. XFX usually is not that good, I would get the leadtek.
