If you want a card better then the 9800xt for less the 6800 is the way to go and you get far cry for free and it is almost par with the x800.

The difference in pipelines has no visual effect.

Vertex Shader 3.0.

I don't know where hybrid gets his information but the majority of the benchmarks I've seen favor the x800.

Different benchmarks will favor whos ever pocket their in. Just kidding, but the PC's they test on differ. Not all PC set ups are compatible.

Not to mention you only waste 1 PCI slot. Not 2. 1 AGP and 1 PCI !== 2 PCI

i think that the 9800 pro will be fine for HL2 because it was originally gonna package a copy of HL2 with the card and many were shipped with a certificate that would get you the game when it as released

I got a free HL2 with a 9600 xt that I bought when building a PC for a freind.

Intergrated sound is poop.

I have a fan in a PCI, cooling my video card(its uber cool)

I don't know, but for games or music stuff you need something better.

Whatever floats your boat.

Sorry dude but pipelines do make a differance go read some reviews.

Oh the 6800gt favors AMD 64 bit systems  so far.

 

Sorry for bringing up an old topic.

 

Oh and most of the stuff is now actually intergrated into the mobo like youm0nt said.

 

Youm0nt nice bike fund lol 16 grand what a waste.
