I'm not familliar with the nVidia brand card, but the GrForce 6800XT is a pretty good card. Performance differs by brand, but it's still comparable.

Whatever the case, it's a good card. Not top-of-the-line or anything, but it's good. It should run most games fine. Depends what you're looking for. If you want a super high-end card, that won't do. However, if you're looking for a good card at a decent price, that'll do fine.

Depends what resolution you run at, but it should run both of those on max settings at 1280x1024 without a problem. can't give an exact estimate, but it should cut through both of those. At the very least, a very playable framerate.

Might want to consider the GeForce 7600GS, has more power and better features. Could you give me a link to the 6800XT you plan to buy? You could probably find a 7600GS at the same or lower price. Or on the ATi side a X1650 Pro would out match the 6800XT and probaly the same or cheaper price and offer better features as the Avivo video stuff and the ability to perform both HDR lighting, Anti-alising, and Anistrophic filtering at the same time.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Is it the AGP or the PCIe version? AGP has topped out with the nVidia 7800 GS. After that, if you want more performance you'll have to move to PCIe.
