9250 isnt a great card, if you're looking for ati or nvidia tell us. i would suggest the nVidia Evga 6600GT. Standard almost, but can play all games out there, not in the best of settings but overall a good card.

No, not X800GTO. 6800GS is the BEST. IT's like 200 bucks or so, and it totally SWEEPS everything else in its price range; it's as good as a 6800GT.

My x800GTO 256M of DDR3 will can any 6800 besides a GT or GS. xSeries cards are ATi's nice budget response to the nVidia 6series. The xlSeries is ATi's response to the 7800GT's.

Point made. Look at ANY of the benchmarks. X800GTO is crap.

The human eye can't rreally distinguish anything after 50 FPS anyways.
