Hey, i've decided to stay with my agp card and board until the release and price drops of dx10 in a couple years, but in the meantime, I want a cheap new video card to keep me going with decent fps in newer games. Right now I have been considering the radeon x850pro- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814102606
and the geforce 6800xt-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814150157
They both have piplines that are unlockable and look ok. the x850 seems to outperform the 6800 with its 12 pipelines and stuff, but some of the reviews said that it ran too hot for stock cooling. and the 6800 just looks cool.
I was just wondering what eveyone else thinks and see if anyone knows about a card < $100-150 that can outperform these.
I was also looking at the 7600's but they didnt seem to perform as well as the gddr3 cards. and maybe 7800s will drop in price with the release of the new lines of cards?
vid cards are just so confusing.
