6800GT v X1650pro

Ive got a mate offering me a nice [URL="http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/product.php?productid=3125&cat=0&page=1"]Sapphire X1650XT/URL]256mb graphics card to replace a somewhat slightly ageing (??) Nvidia 6800GT card.

Anyone got any thoughts on what the better card will be, anything that I should be on the lookout for to see whats better?

What he said^

get some decent cooling on the 6800 and clock the pants off it and you will be set for some time
