Default Video card choice help...

I have an extreme budget, and, when I say extreme, I mean I can't go higher, can't save up, etc. Which card is the best for agp that I have down, or maybe even your suggestions... I found these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814121216

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102609

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814143027

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated!

Also: What's the difference between this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102608

and this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102609

Also, how does these two cards compare, as in, which is better, etc.

Thanks!!!

no it cant be flashed, the x850xtpe is a lot better than the 6800, also dont mistake the gto for the gto2 so if you had to choose between the 6800 and the gto2 the gto2 wins easily once its flashed

get the X800GTO, much better card than the 6800. There is a possible chance to be able to flash. If not, just mod the BIOS and up the voltage a little bit and have fun ocing.
