Default Which is the best?

A friend is planning to upgrade his computer this
coming Friday when he gets paid, because of
Half-Life 2. I would like to do the same, and buy
his existing graphics card off of him. I currently
have a XFX Geforce 6800GT in my machine, and
my friend has a Cirrus Logic 5446. He's suggested
that we make a swap because he claims that the
Cirrus Logic is much better the the 6800GT. I'm
all for this, in threory, but he also wants me to give
him 50 too. I can appreciate that the Cirrus Logic
must be a very high-end card (simply because I
can't find any regular retailers that sell them), but
is it also worth the extra 50? I don't want to get
duped here.

I think your friend may be trying to pull a fast one on you here.

I think our Mr. Parker is a troll. But you never know, there could
be people out there who don't know how to use Google to get the
gen on stuff! If this is genuine Francis then dump your "friend",
because he isn't one!

For those who don't realize this Cirrus Logic card came out in 2000 or 2001:

If you were a proper friend you would give him 75. Cirrus are
collectors items you know!
