Both have 16 pipes and perform about the same in similar setups.
THe X800 XL retails for about $100 less, and unless you plan on going SLI, the X800 XL is a good deal and still quite Oc'able



as you can see, my settings are at 472/556, stock settings are 400/480.

GT's rock, but XL's can keep up right with them, for about $100 less.

With all the talk of the big timer cards...Id like to add that the 6600 gt is doing quite well. Double the power of the aging 9800 pro and for $100 less. A good system with a 6600 gt is quite a competitor. Why the 6600 gt almost matches the stock 6800 (no gt or ultra to clarify). Mos tof the 6600 gt owners I have talked to have been more than pleased with their results. I love it in my system.

Yeah. It is good. Even ATI hasn't come up with a worthy enough competitor for it (supposedly the X700 Pro or XT, but the 6600 GT woops it's ass).

It'll outperform it. There's plenty of benchmarks that'll prove it. The 9800 Pro is old (but, was pretty good).
