Its a matter of what you use your 9300 for. This forum likes to use Battlefield 2 as an example of a graphic intensive game to disqualify every other videocard except the 6800 as a quality videocard. The matter of the fact is that i can play EVERY game that you can right now at a decent 30fps +, im not a fps fiend like most gamers are. I can play these games and get excellent battery life out of my (portable) computer. You quote me Rob489 as saying that the x300 and the 6800 are in different leagues, and its true they are. If you want a video card that can play the occasional game get the x300, if your a gamer and needs to play every game and the highest setting, get the 6800, but expect it to cost 200$ more and eat up your battery.
