Cool Age old Question...

Which Video card do I want for ultimate 3D gaming at a decent price?!?

ATI Radeon X800 XT or the Geforce 6800 Ultra?

Could someone link me some benchmark scores for the top Video cards. I'm building my new system and need a wicked video card to support my gaming habits. I would like to see what scores and results some of the 256 meg cards are putting out these days. I did a quick search online and cannot find a good site that displays video card benchmarks. Thanks for the assistance.

Best regards,

ATI Rage IIc 4 meg AGP 2x, $2.99 on eBay and does everything except game. A real bargain. No fan or water cooling needed, a simple and elegant solution.
The box said \"Requires Windows 98 or better\" I installed Linux. There\'s no going back.

hahaha, I have one of those....

I'd say 7800 GTX, 6800 GT or 6600 GT depending on how much you can spend
