I can't find what you're talking about on there. Mind giving a link?

You mean the x800 or the 6600gt?

Alright, I think I've found what you're talking about, but I've found a lot of them. What are the differences between all of them, and what makes them less expensive than the ATI ones?

Aopen builds are better

Ok, and what about the Radeon cards? What's the difference between ATI, Sapphire, Powercolour, MSI, HIS, etc?

Bump: I guess I should clarify
What's the difference between a Sapphire Radeon x800 and an ATI Radeon x800? What makes the ATI one better?
Also, what's the difference between a x700 and an x800?
Finally, what would be better, an ATI Radeon x700 or a Sapphire Radeon x800?
Also, one more line of questions:
What are the advantages to going PCI-E over AGP? Is it a good idea to do that, or would I be better off just going with an AGP card since I can get a better one with my budget?
Thanks.

The ATI is built by ATI, and the Sapphire is built by the company Sapphire, I think the ATI comes with more things built in.
