no you are better off with an xl or xt as they sacrifice the ocin ability of the pro to get the full 16 pipelines.

i have noticed on alot of the chipsets your reccomending don't have that high of a core clock does this mean a lot or is the quality of the card more dependent on something else

for example the 6800gt has a core clock of 350MHz
i have seen some a lot higher than that

Thats a review on the 7800GTs they are very expensive and well out of the given budget. Clock speed isnt important and so is memory speed as all the gddr3 cards as far as i know use identical samsung memory modules regardless of make or mdoel.

Performance you cant actually tell by looking at alot of the specs what the card will be like unless you have an intimate knowledge of its architecture. You read reviews at least 5 or 6 on that card model of various manufacturers and you then make an informed decision.
