the PE is a little faster. i wouldn't go with either though. look at the newer x1600 or x1800 and the nvidia 6000 or 7000 series.

X850XT is a ripoff now. Get the X1800XL or better yet, a GeForce 7 series card. Both of them wipe the floor with the X850XT and X850XTPE.

pretty sure it doesn't. the 6800GS is supposed to come in AGP (or will soon).

Ok, did a little research and found this card, any good?
And it seems the only way im going to get one is to bid on one on ebay because its impossible to find, which brings me to my next question. if this card is worth buying does anyone have one for sale? BFG 6800 Ultra OC

The X850XTPE "suposedly" cleans the clocks of the 6800ultra. It dosent for me but w/e. I would say wait till February. Thats when the AGP 7800GS is coming out.
