Default What would YOU recommend? (Zogis vs Biostar)


My old GeForce 5600FX 256MB card just fried after I got many useful years out of it. I'm in the market for a temporary replacement (I'll be building a new computer this Fall/Winter with the 8800GTX ). I play games like CS:S, HL2, etc. I'd like to go a BIT cheap, but I'll spend a bit more if it's worth it. Here are the choices I have:

(Note: I'm only listing the differences in common features and info I have available so we're comparing apples and apples)

Zogis ZO68XT-DAGP GeForce 6800XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP4x/8x
  • $76.99
  • Max Res: 2560 x 1600
  • CineFX 3.0 Engine
  • Intellisample 3.0
  • HDTV / S-Video / Composite Out
  • Dual-Link DVI Supported

BIOSTAR V6802XA21 GeForce 6800XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X
  • $99.99
  • Max Res: 2048 x 1536 @ 60Hz
  • CineFX 4.0 Engine
  • Intellisample 4.0
  • HDTV / S-Video Out
  • NOT Dual-Link DVI Supported

Is there a huge difference between CineFX 3.0 and CineFX 4.0? Also, I know the BioStar has a Core Clock of 325 MHz and Memory Clock of 700 MHz. Does anyone know this info for the Zogis?

I guess it all boils down to this: Is it worth the extra $23 to get the BioStar?

Other info
Mobo: ASUS P4P800
CPU: P4 2.4GHz
RAM: 1GB Corsair

Thanks guys!
