lol man there has been so many of these threads but its always fun answering them, u just cant yell at these litle noobies lol jk

ok dude the 6800 deffinetly over the 6600gt i mean seriously
u can unlock it to 16 pipes and be killing the 6600gt and maybe get a core of 400mhz and maybe a memory clock of 900mhz then you would have just got a sweet deal but if you got a pci e slot then just buy the 6800gs because theres no possible way to go wrong with that.

I want a regular 6800. I don't want to overclock either of the cards, I just want to know which is better factory. The 6600GT or the standard 6800, no chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or banana twists, ultra, GT, or GS.

Its close but the 6800 slightly outperforms the 6600gt. However, youll regret buying one if they come out with an agp 6800gs cause its twice the card.
