1. I see no reason why the 6800 Ultra is a better card - then benchmarks show no benefit.
2. These benchies are based on an old driver revision. You would not believe the difference a driver or BIOS update can have on the performance of a card. Not to mention that numerous patches have been released for the game(s). The 7800 GTX could have infinitely better performance, not to mention SLI could have a bigger performance gain.
3. You'd be better off buying a 7-series card - the 6-series is old technology.
-K- If you are going to the 7900gt for $309?? U is krazy 8O
Get the x1800xt 512mb edition at newegg for $329
Performance is better, price value is better and Ati is a better card for the price.

X850 is a great card but lacks sm3.0
Great agp card for price and performance wise, great is U are running agp, but if U R willing to spend, the best agp card today is probably the EvgA 7900gs sc [super clocked], It has pretty good clock setting and I think it has sm 3.0 Another great card by Nvidia. If Sm3.0 is a must have, stick with the 7800gs oc or the Evga 7800 gs sc.
