    Ok well i dont have the money yet, but I do/may have $1000 coming to me...Heres what i want to get and have priced out:

    - Xtasy Radeon X800XT 256 (AGP) : $500.00
    - RAIDMAX Black Aluminum Gaming Case with 420W Power Supply: $70.00
    - Kingmax SuperRAM Series Dual Channel Kit 184-Pin 1GB(512MBx2) DDR PC-3200 : $84.00

    Upgrades from my:
    - Radeon 9600XT 256
    - Chenbro w/e case with a 300w power supply (dont know the name, lol)
    - 1GB, one 3200 and one 2700 (so I would have 1.5gb :) )

    All for a total of around: $654.00 (not including s/h)

    So what do you think? If you know of anywhere I can get any of these 3 things cheaper, that'd be great (especially the vid. card)

    What about this:

    ATI Radeon X800 PRO AGP 8X 256MB DDR, $399.99 with free 2nd day shipping

    :) Saves me about $100. the site I found this on didn't list any X800XL's but this one has "upto 16 pipelines" as well.

    Don't get the Pro, you don't know for sure if you'll be able to unlock those pipelines, either get the X800XL or the X800XT, although, as everyone has told you, I also would go for the XL.

    Just one reminder, did you check if the X800XL will work on your mobo? It's just that AGP X800XLs are not available yet, and you should check if the one you're looking at isn't the PCIe version...

    The card on that link is the AIW (All In Wonder) version, all AIW versions of Ati cards retail for about $100 more than the non-AIW version.
    Still looking for an AGP X800XL non-AIW version, haven't found any yet, you should wait just a couple of weeks and you might get one for about $300-$350.
