    Alright, I'm looking to spend around $450 or so on a graphics card tomorrow, I want one of the best ones out there around this price. I was looking at the ATI Radeon 850XT or the 800XT Pro. Not Sure which one to get or the 850XT PE. Which would be the fastest or the better buy. Thanks......Gettin excited to replace this 9700 Pro!

    BTW I'm looking to purchase this in a store. Not off the internet. Any Suggestions where the better deals are?

    The X800XL is the best bang for the buck... The X850XT PE is a fun card too :D

    20Mhz better core, 30Mhz better memory clocks for the X850XT PE over the X850XT - not even a 10% difference. The X850XT is available at Best Buy for 400.00 - comes with the Remote Wonder and "says" is has video in and out - but I'd double check that.

    BTW, here's a nifty chart for ya, I think Mig-31 posted it as news a while back, but I lost it, then found it today...

    Thanks for the chart I think I'm gonna go with the X850 XT

    Anyone know where I can find this in stores or do I really need to order it online? I tried CompUSA , Circuit City, and Best Buy. none of them carry this one.
