Nope, DX9.0C
The FX series cards are DX 8.1 though.

Any card that came out starting with the FX5200 from nVidia and the 9500 from ATI supports DX9.0c. Cards from Nvidia's 6 and 7 series and ATI's X--- and X1--- series support DX 9.0 a lot better than the FX and 9--- series cards. SM3.0 refers to shader model 3.0, which renders visual effects like light. The X--- cards only support SM2.0, so they won't look as good.

I would go for a 6800GS PCI-E for PCI-E, and an x1600XT 256 for AGP.
The X1600XT is only PCI-E

Nope, the FX series cards support DX 9.0C, BUT they are only emulating DX 9.0, so you will only get DX 8.1 shaders and effects, but it is still running in DX 9.0 mode.
So it is pretty much just DX 8.1, only a little better.

So a gt will only support dx9, but won't look as good? I need a card that won't get outdated for a while, so i guess the gs is better? What prices do you think the 7800gt's will go for on ebay after the 7900's are released? Thanks

No, the 6800GT will look THE SAME as the GS image quality wise, and BETTER than the x850 XT image quality wise.

So which one would be better, the 6800gt or 6800 gs? Performance wise won't the gt beat the gs because of 16 pipelines compared to 12? Also which is better image quality wise? Thanks

My 6800GS can pwn most/any stock 6800gt's. You can get great clocks out of a GS but stock, GT is better.
