Default Video Cardz

Ok, i was going to get a eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT. But i have money saved plus i have my check coming friday. So im going to have around 600$ cash. Being myself, and a computer freak(like you all). I started thinking, if i wanted i could get a better video card. Friday night im getting a video card, so help me decide what i should do. Should i get one of these cards, or stick with my 6800 GT. Then have some money left over for my dual raid HDD system. These cards would be good to OC also.

Sapphire ATI RADEON X800 XT Video Card
eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra Video Card

Finished With TF.

I would personally stick with a 6800GT and then with the leftover money upgrade something else.

If you really want to get one of those three cards, get the ultra, but I would save.

The only thing i dont like about the 6800 GT's is their ChipsetCore speed. I think 350mhz is pretty low for this high profile card.
