I currently own a ATI PCI express X800 XL and I was wondering if it is worth upgrading to a ATI PCI express X1800 XT?

I dont really play the game FEAR so dont take that into consideration.

I guess I was just wondering if I traded up if the graphics would get better or would the frame rate just improve, That is really my question I am trying to get at.

I would wait for another generation to come out, than i would by second from the top of the line.

If your framerates are OK, than dont buy a new card, otherwise, go for a card that is second fromt he top of the line because they usually have the exact same hardware as the op of the line minus an overclock.
