Is there any sort of gear calculator out there?

For checking exactly how much gear will affect your damage and defense. For gear on the AH. I know it does it in game for you.

I just try to keep track of the stats on my current gear and where I sit with that, and then I look at the differences with whatever item I'm looking at in AH and figure out a rough estimate of what I'd gain and what I'd lose.

What i'm trying to do is see if a 799 dps crossbow with 169 dex now, is better or worse that a ~1000 dps crossbow with 0-50 dex or something around that.

It depends how much the rest of your gear increases your Dex. Unless you have fairly high Dex that damage increase probably won't be enough to offset the dex loss.

Also bonus crit damage to no bonus to crit damage. I wish they would just make it work like they do in game.

The difference of 200 DPS with over 1000 in the primary stat is phenomenal. Losing 100-200 Dex to increase your weapon DPS by over 200 is well worth it. Get it with a socket for +Crit Damage if it doesn't have that stat.
