Default Which of these cards is better?

Alright. I stumbled upon a problem. Its between two Radeon x800 cards.

The first one is this..

ATI Radeon X800XL 256MB AGP Graphics Card :$399.99 Canadian

Link: http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pro...gon=&langid=EN

The second one is .....

Connect 3D Radeon X800 Pro / 256MB GDDR3 / AGP 4x/8x / DVI / VGA / TV-Out / Video Card : $269.99 Canadian

Link: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...476661&CatId=0


Alright. SO u can see my problem. I dont know too much about vid cards and stuff. the 2nd option has the "pro" in it, but the first is more expensive which leads me to believe it is better. Can anyone help? It would be great if i could save 130$ on a card which i could put into building my comp. So. Which one is betteR? Thanks.

I think Monarch ships to Canada, and they have the ATI radeon 800XL for 250 right now. No rebates involved. THis is in US dollars.

I just need a statement over whether or not the x800XL is better than the 3D CONNECT. I mean. The 3D Connect has 16 pipelines, 256mb. same as the x800. so why?

The x800pro has 12 pixel piplines NOT 16. The x800XL has 16.

Yep, but he isn't talkin about the 6800GT...

The 800XL is the best one of the two, hands down. Go with a 6600 or 6800 though, much, much better IMO.
