EVGA version. It also comes w/ doom 3. That version is the most popular 6800 GT around here in most cases.
oh btw, i also think it is one of the cheapest. You can pick onne up at newegg for 390 right now.

the eVGA version is the best only on this basis:

That it can be overclocked to and past the 6800Ultra speeds fairly easily. That and eVGA is a pretty good manufacturer when it comes to making good and stable cards.

Other than that there's nothing that seperates the cards.

Unless you see one that has a lower core/memory speed for whatever reason. But you are paying for the quality of the manufacturers work. Each one will be different from the other, and without testing it yourself you'll never know which one performs better.

You can't really ask a question like this, as it's pretty vague. Unless you test them all you'd never know.

A few of them come oc'd however it is at a price ... about £50 more.

Would these oc'd cards be able to be oc'd even further, or is it not worth the extra money ?
