Default Radeon X700 VS 6800XT

I own the Radeon X700, and I have a person who wants to buy it. But the only problem is, what card will I buy? I found this card...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121206

It seems to be better in a sense that it's a 6800 series card, but the specs don't show it. So I'm confused, which is a better card? And by better I mean which will pump out the best graphics...

That's a tough choice.... I'd say the 6800 would give you better graphics, BUT is that it's a 128M and for 60 dollars more you can get the same card as me, an x800GTO, and mine's a 256M, and OC's and out preforms any 6800, and even some 7800's.

I haven't heard anything about teh 6800XT so i really can't tell you for sure but the 6800XT's i've seen have 256mb so i'd go with that but i don't really know alot about the 6800XT.

I was also looking at this...I think it's a good choice as it has OpenGL 2.0 unlike the 6800XT which has OpenGL 1.5, plus this card had GDDR3!

If it's AGP cards you want, try these:

Radeon X1300 or X1600. Yeah, you heard right.

http://www.gecube.com/products-detai...&prod_id=44728

ATI has launched AGP versions of its Radeon X1300 and X1600 cards, and GeCube is one of the first companies coming out with this card. The four-pixel pipeline GC-RX1300GA2-D3 is clocked at 450 MHz (with memory at 500 MHz) and includes VGA, DVI and TV-Out connectors. The 12-pixel pipeline GC-RX1600PGA2-D3, set at 500 MHz and 800 MHz, comes with dual DVI and TV-Out connectors. Both are equipped with 256 MB of DDR2 memory and 128-bit interface.

Yeah, it's so new right now as it barely came out. The prices will definitely be available very soon. That's a very good card for that specs.

Any estimated time of arrival for the card? Because once I sell my card I want to have another one within a week, mainly because I'm a gamer and like to play hardcore games.

Also, is $150 to much for my X700?

Yeah, it's too much. I would say sell it for like $100 if you get lucky. $50 at the very minimum.

As for the AGP version of the X1600 arrival, I have no clue. I just know that it will be available. Judging from that website, it should already be available (overseas it looks like).

I want to know how much this X1600 will cost though. Any price ranges you can think of for it?
