Default ASUS ATI RADEON X600.. worth getting?

alright i am deciding between the

fx5700ultra (heard was alright card but probably wont get)
ASUS ATI RADEON X600
and ofcoarse the radon 9800 pro...

if you wanna throw another good card out there go ahead but keep in mind i really dont wanna go for the 400 dollar cards such as the radon x800 or the new nvidia card

Are you getting a PCI-E system ? The X600 runs from PCI-E and the fx 5700 ultra and the 9800 Pro run on AGP and you might have compatibility issues .

only X800 came with AGP and PCI-X (2 versions)

both X300 and X600 are on PCI-X only

how do you think the clock speed compares to the 9800 pro?
