  1. I was thinking the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 mb or the Radeon X800XL, but i am open to other cards

    Standard 6800 Ultras run at 400/1.1 and my pair of XFX's go there easily. Add some additional cooling and I have seen guys get them up near 490 but I haven't heard of one at 500 yet. My 6800GT's run really well and relatively coolly at 400/1.1 and I don't push them past that as I haven't had a need to (can play everything maxed out) and want them to last a couple years.

    get the XFX 6600GT off of newegg, it's about 150 bucks. With a great setup you can set everything at high in BF2 with decent frames.

    what's better the EVGA Geforce 6800 128MB 256-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X or
    the ATI Radeon 9800PRO 256MB 256-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X

    I am not quite sure but... doesn't the 6600gt beat the 9800pro and the regular 6800?
