Default New Video Card

I need some help picking a new video card.

Im on a kinda small budget so heres what Ive got so far.

Which out of these would be the best,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...MP=OTC-B1zrat3

or

http://www.buy.com/retail/product.as...=0&dcaid=15892

Also I have enough, so.. would it be worth it to buy a 6800GT, because Id also need to buy a new case and power supply.

Thanks for any help.

Definitely the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...MP=OTC-B1zrat3 I have the almost exact same one… same company, but it’s just a little different. No, you do not need the 6800gt if you have to do all that stuff… that’s the same reason, actually, why I didn’t get it. The x800xl will perform very will. All of the highest levels of resolution and such with no lag at all. Of course, I’ve OC’ed… so yeah. the 6600gt isn’t the best when it is compared to the x800xl… just doesn’t cut it. Yeah, hope this helps.

Oh, It doesn’t really matter… there’s x800, x800xl, and x850xt pe. It’s just the model number… don’t worry about it.
