Apparently the 6600GT outperforms the 6800.

well thats true only thing is. I dont really want to Oc the card nor do i eant to unlock the pipelines. Which the 6800 has. I'n not that save to Oc plus i dont know if i can really do it without frying the card. ANd plus the Price is so close to the 6600gt.

GDDR3 is faster...for 128MB and 256MB the only difference is when you play at really high resolutions...with all the aa and af turned up...if you dont need all the bells and whistles and play at what ever resolution is the highest then the 164 one is good enough...

i bet you can use both cards at the highest resolution, but the 164 one would be less performance, probably just slight, they would be even with fps and all that until you reach past whatever resolution.
