oh well i will see if he can cover the extra cost. i was reading one of the reveiws (HIS x1600xt) where the card was faster then a 16 pipe x800. so depending on the money he has and is willing to spend will decide on the card. i will have him get the x800 if he can afford it.

yes, X800 would be the better choice.The X1600 has a 128bit memory bus and the 512 mbyte ram is a waste of money.

IMO a 6800 is the better deal in that price range.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814121216

Newegg was limited on AGP versions so look elsewhere to compare. You don't need a 512 Mb card but with the price being about the same I'd spend the couple extra dollars:D . 256Mb is good enough but don't get a 128 Mb version when you look around.

WWW.ZIPZOOMFLY.COM is a good place too.

Edit: just saw that card is only 128 bit memory interface. you can get one that has 256MB & 256bit interface for about $200.
