Which AGP card - 6800GS or X800GTO?

    My mate is upgrading the graphics card in his AGP system for the last time before getting a completely new one next year.

    The budget is around £130 which I reckon probably narrows it down to a choice between a 6800GS or X800GTO.

    I'd be grateful for suggestions one which one to suggest (and the reasons why if possible).

    Thanks :)

    Well i can remember a thread a few months back of someone with the HIS X800GTO, and he was clocking it really high scoring 7000+ in 3Dmark 05.

    I'm not really sure on how the 6800GS performs, but i'd expect theyre both in the same league

    6800gs is in a different league, it supports shader model 3.0 so its a league above the x800.
