    We need to know if you have an AGP slot or a PCI-E slot. 2 of those videocards are PCI-E and one is AGP. The 2 are not compatible.

    Of those 3, the 6800GS would be the best. Has more memory, decent core clock speed and most importantly has a 256bit memory interface (1650 has only 128). The X800 has the same memory bus but only 8 pixel pipelines vs. 12 for the 6800.

    MetalX, all can be found in the AGP flavor. But Newegg has the X800SE AGP listed at $275 :eek: !

    275? I'd rather draw the graphics than spend that much for that card
