like said before, unless you need the AIW features, get the 6800 GT.

Yeah, you will be dissapointed if you get the X800XL, because it lacks Shader Model 3, which is required to take advantage of all the new advanced DX9 features. Without it, you will have to play newer games in DX8.1 mode, which doesn't look bad, its just not as good. Get the 6800 GT, you won't regret it.
P.S. I have an X800 Pro...don't make the same mistake I did.
have you considered soft-modding your card to get 16 pipes?
you don't have to turn it into an XT to get the 16 pipes, however it really does make a difference
