    If you're sticking with AGP, the Nvidia 7800GS is the best card you can buy.

    If money is no object and your sticking agp, then as egt says the 7800gs is for you.

    Another vote for the 7800GS. It's faster (although not by much) than the X800XT, supports more, and overclocks to insane levels.

    It's this overclockability that makes it able to lead the field.
