What do you plan on using the computer for? Personally I would take the 6800 out of the lot.

I would go for the X800XT.

It doesn,t have Pixel Shader 3.0 support like the 6800XT frpm nVidia,but to be honest none of the cards at this level are really powerful enough for that.

I have used until recently an X800XT and I can say two things for sure......First,you will be able to play any game reasonably well.I played through F.E.A.R. and started Oblivion with that card.

Secondly you will be able to play at settings that dictate the use of 256MB onboard video RAM.That puts the otherwise similar 6800XT out of the picture as far as I am concerned.

Look at this guide from Toms Hardware click here
