building a new computer and the motherboard i have is PCI-E so i was wondering what the best cards are out right now. I've heard the Radeon x800 is pretty good and a little bit better then a 9800 pro, but what does Nvidia have to offer?

the x800 is not a little bit better than the 9800 card... its a lot better. heck my 6600gt would smoke the 9800xt card. ;)

if you are getting a pci-e card Id go with the 6800GT or the ultra if you got the money.

i think the best video card right now is the x800xtPE. ati is coming up with a more powerfull one the x850xt or something like that and supposed to be the best. but exspect to pay a grip for that card

right now i'm looking at a Radeon X700 Pro

If some one could price me on a 6600gt/6800gt i might reconsider because right now i don't have unlimited funds and i just want to be able to get the computer up and running.

the x850xt is out already, and yes it costs exactly one arm and half of a leg.

i think that's a shitty card for the money, but it's up to you.

if you ordered off ati's site, use code 1010 to get 10% off.

Its not that shitty, but I think the 6600GT is better though and its cheaper. How much did you pay for it?
