I have a X1600PRO and the 6800LE i would pick the 6800LE over the X1600PRO, but if you can get hold of a cheap X800 or X850 get one, there easierly the best AGP card.

:laugh: :laugh: , wich graphics card does he have?
Edit: just saw he has a 9600XT, if he don't do much gamming he doesn't need a new GFX card, that one will handle games pretty good, at low/medium settings
