I am an huge ATI fanboy, but it isn't the graphics that matters.. It's the power that it will be able to provide for future games...

I am pretty much happy with making sure that video card that i get last me about 2 years before i need an upgrade.

My major PC upgrade happens between April - End of June.
I either upgrade the Video Card or the Motherboard/CPU during this this. This year was the video card, last year (by accident) it was the motherboard and CPU.

Its definately faster on normal settings but check out this review:

http://www.hexus.net/content/reviews...lld19JRD03NDc=

From the looks of some of the tests this new card still cant handle AF and FSAA on much of any level. But then again who cares when you can play a game at 1600x1200. Oh well, im an ati fan and im still waiting to see what the specs on the X800 XT are going to be like.

I am not going to buy one.

Not only is it too expensive, but the 9800 XT or GeforceFX 5950 Ultra would actually be best to buy due to the DRAMATIC price drops that they will be seeing due to the new video cards coming out.

So I am going for the 9800 XT for sure.

Then, once something happens to the 6800 Ultras price or the new Radeon card comes out and its price drops, I will consider renewing my card.
