I want a 256 MB AGP card and was looking at the ATI Radeon X800 Pro, but I am really looking for what card is the best bang for the buck (I am an ATI fan though). I was also wondering if maybe I should just hang until the new 512 MB cards roll around. Please give me feedback I want to hear your replies.

My current system
3.00 Ghz Pentium 4
128 MB ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
1 GB DDR RAM PC3200
120 GB HD

Pick up the newest copy of PCWorld. There's an article in there about the new X800 XL 512MB. They say the slight boost of the extra 256MB wasn't worth the extra $$.

Just me but I am going to wait a see if ATI comes out with the R520 code name -Fudo in late Aug. Said it can do 10K in 3DMark05 pushing 24 low end card,32 pipelines high end card.Got to see if that can be done with just 1 vid card.Comp. between Nividia and ATI is great,yes?

I have the 'Abit X800XL 512MB' card, and it's useful when I'm doing something that requires a lot of video memory. (Doom 3 for example, although I don't play it anymore..)
