Tom's Hardware Guide has an article that is summed up at http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/2...215/ati-21.html
The x850 scored better on all of the benchmarks.

Dear FB,

I run a ATI AX800AGP/256mb/TVD card and I am a happy camper. I also have talked to ATi customer service with some issues and they have been very helpful.

Ati has the market for now; meaning if you buy the state of the art stuff, you will not be disappointed.

When working with the price level you are thinking remember cooling and compatibility.

Cool Master,

junkdk :thumbsup:
