No, the X800 Pro is a terrible excuse for a video card, and is the worst card for the money to ever come out. You are much better off with the X1600 Pro. If you want real performance, get a 6800GS.

X800 Pro is the worst out of those three. Go with the X1600. The X800 Pro performs a little worse than the 6600GT and it doesn't have SM3.

The 6800xt is a watered down 6800,The 6800xt only has 8 pipe's compared to 12 with the regular 6800,If you get a good 1 you should be able to unlock atleast 4 extra pipe's giving you a regular 6800 for a bit cheaper price,I'm grabbing that asus in a couple day's and gonna to see what i can do with it

You can't buy that card anyway's cause it's out of stock As far as which is better the x1600pro would probably kick the crap out of the 6800xt,See if you can find some benchmark's on the two and see how they stack up to each other.
