That x800 is a sexy sexy machine. Er... silicon slab... card... whathaveyou.
They should drop pretty soon, though they're basically the best mid-high card out there, (in my opinion) so they might hold their value, which is what I'm afraid of. They do all the sparkle effects that make games look gorgeous much better than the [The competitors]. Even the x800 pro, at the $260 mark (give or take a bit) is a very very good performer, and you can even open up the other pipes to make it an XT. (though, not guarenteed)
...Or, you could just buy an XT.
I think I might shoot for an X8-- for my next card. It looks like it will be just like the 9800 and pull it's weight for years to come.
You're the guy from that hamburger train, right?
