Agreed, you would be happy with a 6600GT

It really depends on the game though. I have seen benchmarks on games like half-life 2 where the x700 pro beats the 6800 gt. If you want to play opengl games like doom 3 get the nvidia.

in 99% of tests ive seen the x700 is slightly beaten by the 6600gt but they both of them are destroyed by the 6800gt. i would only get a 6600gt cos they are about the same maybes abit cheaper than the x700 and there higher end card like the x800s (all of them) and the 6800 (except the standard which suks) are well over 250.

I have seen the same results before. ATI's instruction sets own Direct3D.
