You say allot how the X800 Pro outperforms the 6800GT..... How can you say this when ALL benchmarks save HL2 (wherin the X800 Pro outperforms the 6800 Ultra), say otherwise.
Yup, gonna agree with beedub there...I have yet to see a review that says the ATI anything next gen beats the nvidia series.
the gt costs more than the pro
6800GT for $415 plus comes with doom3
X800 Pro - $450
So I don't know what your sources are as far as pricing goes, but you obviously need to look at different websites or do your homework. The X800 hasn't outperformed nvidia at all, the previous gen cards, yes ATI outperformed, but not on these new ones, you are just insane to even declare that. I read an article on the upcoming 6600 and they said the X600 would be a complete waste of money, and even if it had 8 pipelines like the 6600 it'd still not even come close to comparing as far as performance goes.
There's a nice review on the 6800GT in some instances the X800 pro performs better but it's only on like 2 out of 15 tests an overall the 6800GT outpeformed the pro. But considering it's not the ULTRA going up against the PRO I'd still say it's a damn good card and your information is horribly messed up.
