Default can some one help me with this?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...156583693&rd=1

is this video card the x800 or x800 pro this guys description is sort of misleading.

Also on the x800 pro it says it has AGP 8X support or PCI Express support what does it mean by this.

It cannot do that, I have one.. That is a x800 Pro, however, I don't know who makes it.... Looks like Roswell judging by ALien. It is AGP 8X, cannot do PCI Express....

NVM, it is Sappire.. My Bad.. But it is a Pro, and it is AGP 4X/8X compatible only. Buy it! It looks good! Cheap as hell too!!

Well, for just CS:S, I would say ATi x800 Pro on ebay you have there, or the nVidia 6800 (vanilla one). both are great cards! The Pro is better then Vanilla 6800 however.

BTW, the most important things to look at for gaming are:

8 or more Pixel Pipelines
3 or more Vertex Shaders
Core Clock of at least 350Mhz
Memory Clock of at Least 650MHz.
128MB Minimum RAMDAC

That is about it. Make sure it is AGP 8X or PCIe, and make sure it is by a good manufacturer (ASUS, eVGA, MCI, XFX, BFG, Diamond, Saphirre, to name a few.)

well the one on ebay right now is that a pro or an se? It says pro at top but near the bottom it says just x800 so im not to sure.

Also the video cards ive been looking at have varying specs and im wondering which thing is the most important for cs:s like clockspeed , bits,ammount of memory,type of memory etc.

Im thinking about buying the BFG 6800 oc.

PRo on ebay one, I have the same card in my Moms PC... Yeah, the BFG 6800 OC is good, but I would go eVGA (personal experience, they are really good) Trying out ASUS GPUs right now, tell you about them when I get them running.

Ok, I checked out my card, and that Sapphire is the same exact card I have!! I kid you not, it looks identical!! It is an x800Pro, I did my homework last night (literally and not so literally!!) and found out, I had forgotten.
