A quick note to readers. We didn't include any Nvidia based parts in the benchmarks because at press time we hadn't received our 6800 (N40) from Nvidia yet (and comparing the X800 to the FX 5950 Ultra isn't the kind of comparison you guys are looking for anyway). We'll be pushing out a 6800 review/preview with comparison numbers as soon as we have the 6800 in our hot little hands.
That is the cost of the card after you send them a card. That is the same thing I thought at first too. I was really happy that I could just send in my current 9800XT and only end up paying around $50 for a new x800 XT when it came out. Turns out they only give you $50 for whatever card you send in. If you have a newer card you should sell it on eBay if you're looking to upgrade. I got $305 for my used 9800XT w/ box and everything.

another thing is that ATI sells cards off their site for MSRP. after the initial brouhaha where even retailers are doing MSRP, prices tend to fall quite a bit but pricing w/ ATI stays consistent so usually it is in the best interests for you NOT to buy directly from them

?? twice the speed of the XT, well entertaining, I was lookign at all these cards and reviews, but it seams as there is a margin of difference, but still in drawing up a clear winner for now, it would have to be the X800 Pro.. WHY? if you clock the vivo's they run faster than the XT's with matching core and ram,

I was viewing the Nvidia's card and found that they are not so good on the image quality, maybe this will be fixed shortly and can only lead me the thinking the NVidia win's not by double frame rates.. LOL, your on something!!
