x800xl, You can overclock that if you want. It is the faster card at stock speed.
Network theory sucks.

Yeah, you have to determine if you play games designed around the doom engine or not. Other than that - go for price.

GeForce 7800GT is what I would choose today. That also means choosing PCI-Express X16.

The BFG 6800 GT OC performs just like an Ultra which stays with the x800xl when in doom and most of the time smokes the xl according to TR articlIs
Its a little more on price , i think best buy has them for like 350.00
Need a good excuse lickety for the g/f
