Thats what I thought Bush and THE 6800GT'S I seen was more than the ATI X850 XT and the core speed and memory speed was better I believe. And the vid ram wasnt GDDR3 like the ATI.

This is kinda late but this dang site's so big I've only just got around to this section.

www.BuildYourOwn.Org.UK/Forums is another forum I belong to and you can get real good advice on building or just upgrading there. It's mainly based in the UK (because of the webmaster) but we have members from all over the world.

The members do tend to have an irational preferance toward AMD and nVidia though. Listen to the advice but make your own mind up.
I have an Intel / ATi system, and they've talked me into thinking about AMD / nVidia for my next outing (based on currently available hardware).

p.s. I'd say the 7800GTX would currently outperform the X850-XT (on the whole) and these are the two top cards for the moment.
BUT, both cards will perform differently in different game arena's:- Developers write software depending on their own hardware preferences. Software written for an ATi card will perform better on those cards than nVidia equivalents, and vice-versa.

~S~
Cool

Thanks Shades And Kit im sorry I done went and converted myself to ATI but in my opinion this convert was well worth it lol

btw I got another $50 knock off due to the card going on sale lol

All I can say is the ATI X850 XT is smokin the old GeForce 4 card I had :):):)
