The X800XL and the X850Pro are similar in performance, with the X850Pro edging out the XL barely.

The XL is also a little less expensive than the Pro...

The best way for you to decide is to look at www.newegg.com and also video card benchmarks from www.anandtech.com or www.tomshardware.com and decide for yourself.

Search TF, there are tons of these threads. Also, if you want to play BF2, Nvidia is the way to go because only Nvidia cards can play it in DX9 Get the 6600 GT, its slightly slower than the X800XL, but has full support for DX9 shaders unlike the ATI cards.
