Well, if you really want to get the x700, go ahead. I'm not stopping you (like I can). It's just that, when I used my friend's x700 to play halo, there were lines going down the screen, it would take forever to adjust when you did something, and if you adjusted back and forth, like from 680x850 or wtv to 1280x1040 it would remain choppy for a while... and it's not just him. I went to pcclub and they had a comp with an x700 once and man... same thing. Go ahead though... Maybe it was just those two cards... and besides, an x800 will most likely last you longer.

i would love to get an x800 first of all its higher up than the x700 and you make a good argument but it all depends on the amount of mony i make within the next couple of months if i can i will get the x800 but if not i need other options, have you heard of any other graphics cards that will play this game smoothly and beautifuly?(that are around 100-200 dollers.)

Well, you can get the 6600gt. That's around that price. Or a 6800 128mb. Here:

those two cards are good too.

No, the 6600gt and the 128mb 6800 will perform well. Just make sure, MAKE SURE, you have an adequte power supply. I think at least 300W to be sure... if not, then you're better off with an x700 because of the low power it demands...

Have you ever tried to overclock? What are the speeds of your core and memory? How big is your screen?
