Default geforce 7800 gt unlockable to 7800gtx?

I heard that it wasn't cuz the extra four pipelines are integrated into the card itself and locked by nvidia.

What's better:
6800gt oced to ultra
or plain oced 7800gt

I figured it this way. Get a 7800gt and unlock 4 pipelines and oc to gtx specs. I gues you can save like 200 bucks in the process IF all goes well....Lol

I think this is the second thread about 7800GT unlockable pipelines.

Unlocking pipelines just provides more of a data path, so something runs at a higher peformance with more pipelines.
