Default i have an x800 pro, should i upgrade?

ok, i got a x800 pro and 600bucks. should i upgrade to something else right now? or wait a few months. Well obviously i should wait a few months, but that is always the case no matter what you buy. I guess, is the fastest card out right now gunna give me much a performance increase?

Thats the only card that is currently of better performance by ATI.

Personaly I would keep your x800 a bit longer.

hmm if i need a lil more money, i can sell mroe crap on ebay. looks like the highest end cards are like around 650. i answered my own question lol. after looking at the benchmarks, the highest end card out right now doesnt really justify the ammount of money that i will spend when i already got an x800pro

AGP still has plenty of life and power left in it yet.

If you looking for future proofing though a PCI-E board will do you better as that is the direction the GPU industry is heading.

It looks like you are having the same performance problems with the X800 Pro as I am. I have seriously considered upgrading many times, but its just hard to drop $400 on a 6800GT when I just spent $425 on an X800 Pro six months ago that was supposed to be a kick-arse card but ended up being something for the crapper.
