Well, here are my options, buy something like the 6600GT which sucks, and then as soon as the next generation is out, I would have to be and get away from the 6600GT... Or I can get something decent now, but not as bad as the 6600GT, and then wait for ATi and nVidia to come out with their stuff, and get a good idea which is better for the money, and by then the price will have dropped enough to make the money saved now by buying a 6600GT kind of pointless. I am very good at thinking things through, and I enjoy things to work well, even though that may come at a price.
Anyhow, I will consider the 6600GT, but the X800XL & 6800GT are the top two choice.
I WISH ATi WOULD MAKE THE X800XT AIW IN PCI-EXPRESS!!! Then I would buy it, and when the next gen. comes out, I can put it in another rig, as I have familly that are looking at buying a media PC when their condo is going to be finished, which will be in some time, so, no money lost
BUT DARN YOU ATI!!! PCI-e is worth it, make it in PCI-e...
