More about what card bucks
  1. The X800GTO is the best of the three.
  2. x800 gto ftw, only if u pay for 7800gs or 6800gs would nvidia card be worth is
  3. I have that x800gto and it kicks a$$! No other card out there is as good as the x800gto (excluding the 7800gs, and maybe an x850)
  4. Also, it does not have to be one of these 3 cards if there is a better card for around the same money. The games I play are Dark Age of Camelot, FPS's such as America's Army, Ghost Recon, FEAR, FarCry, and also games like Age of Empire's etc if it matters much. Thanks for the help and keep it coming :)
  5. I don't think you'll get anything better than the X800GTO in a store for that price. Your only other option would be to check eBay, but that's more luck than anything.

  6. THIS. Steal the extra $10 if you have to, as this card will smoke all other cards mentioned, especially that 6800XT crap.

    You'll be lucky to get close to the performance of a standard X800, let alone beat it. The 7600GS is really hurting from that low-clocked memory.
  7. x800. The performance is too weak on the 68xt to make up for it having SM3.0.
  8. Including rebates, the cards I mentioned turn out to be...

  9. Go for the X800GTO; far better performance for the money. IMO If you truely desire an SM3.0 card, save up the cash for a 7600GT so you have the power to take advantage of the features.
  10. X800 for sure.

    Stay away from the 6800XT: total crap

    The 6800 GS mentioned is very good in PCIe, but the AGP version really sucks:

    The 7600 GS is OK, I think the GTO is faster though, and probably a bit cheaper to boot.

    I don't think so. While the X800GTO is a good performer for the money, the X800XL, X800XT, 7600GS (maybe), 7600GT, 6800Ultra (hard to find), as well as the 2 you mentioned above are all better than the X800gto.

    STAY AWAY FROM THE 6800XT...IT IS A PIECE OF SH*T.
