If you want ATI, stick with the X1800XL or X1600 as somebody mentioned earlier. Or go with Nvidia. It isn't hard to do if you have a good driver cleaner like Driver Cleaner Pro.
Totally agreed. I'm serious, don't you dare get ATI. I did it, and it was a big mistake. Believe me if you get an ATI card such as the x800 or x850, YOU WILL SEVERELY REGRET IT!!! I am not an Nvidia fanboy because i have an ATI card right now and i can tell you that it will be the worst decision you will ever make in your life if you decide to get any of those cards you listed. I've actually brought my pc over to my friends house, he has a 6800GT and all i could think was WOW. The difference in every aspect of the games we played such as Far Cry, F.E.A.R, CS:S, and Doom 3 were incredible. PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY OF THOSE CARD YOU LISTED. I'm just trying to rescue as many people as i can from buying a product and not being satisfied with it. And btw, my friend had an ATI chipset with an ATI Radeon Xpress integrated graphics and he installed a new Nvidia card very easily so don't let that steer you away from Nvidia Cards.
