the x800 is twice as fast in benchmark tests,3d mark 2003.
£260 sounds like a good price,but you should be able to compare the price with a comparison site,put the card details into google then look in the right hand column,this will give you some sites that compare current prices.peter.

I have recently bought an ATI Radeon X800 PRO graphics card and I feel that my AMD Athlon XP 3000+ processor could be acting as a 'bottleneck' so I am glad that I didn't wait for the X800 Extreme Edition to come out as this faster card would be even more of a 'bottleneck'!
I think that these 2 cards work better with 64 bit processors!

p.s. I am still happy with it by the way!
