My buddy whi currently has a 6600 wants to upgrade to a Radeon X8xx series after seeing the way mine performs and plays games As I have gone from a 9800 Pro to a X1800 XL I have had no experience with the Xx00 series of cards. His budget is $280+ shipping. He's not into flashing bios or OC as he likes to keep the warrenty so no mods please. So I want your guys opinions who have experience and tell me which one would benefit him best

The X850Pro is basically the same thing as an X800GTO, the differences being that the X850Pro comes with the R480 core and it's a little faster on the RAM and core speed. The XL has 16 pipelines vs the 12 on the X850Pro and nearly has the same clock speeds. I'd say the XL is the better bet.

I've never had any issues with a powercolor card, a bud of mine bought the exact card 3 weeks ago and has yet to have a problem.

Power color is OK... i have a powercolor 9600 pro but they tricked me.. it has 200 mhz slower memory than the standard 9600 pro (400 mhz instead of 600 mhz) Its still running since 2003 so i guess its reliable

The Powercolor is good to go with. I've used some of their products before and they have not given me any grief.
