AquaMark3 performance is good, the PowerColor X800 GTO fairs quite well, even up to GeForce 6800GT levels! Impressive for a mainstream videocard.

Halo Source: Bungie

The game tells the tale of Master Chief, the last surviving Spartan -- a genetically enhanced breed of future super soldier, as he battles mankind's greatest threat -- the Covenant. Released in 2003, Halo is Microsoft/Bungie's first person shooter classic. The game takes advantage of DirectX 9 shaders as well as Pixel Shader 2.0.

Halo performance at 1024x768 is very good and the PowerColor X800 GTO videocard has no difficulty keeping up with the faster videocards. Gaming at 1600x1200 is a bit different... dedicated gamers would be better served by a more powerful GPU if they are determined to game at this resolution.
