BFG 6800 GS OC for $249.95

or

x800 XL /w ATi arctic cooler for $150 plus my x700pro which is $150 (I might be getting it from a friend.)



I'm not upgrading to PCI-e for awhile so, yeah.

6800GS. It supports SM3.0 and all its various components. You'll get better looking games.

the 6800GS seems to kick the pants off of the X700 in games, so i'd go with that.

The BFG 6800GS would be the obvious winner here.

but

Instead of a X800XL. Look at the X800GTO or GTO2 even with the lack of SM3 it is by far the best value midrange card at the moment (well over here anyways).

How about spending $50 more and getting a better 7800GS that'll kick the pants on that 6800GS, especially if you aren't upgrading to PCI-E anytime soon

Actually, the 7800GS isn't a bad idea. Just make sure you get a better cooler if you get one. I've heard that they run rather hot.
