Default Asus 6800XT

Just wondering what people thought about the 6800XT,I know it's nothing special but hey it's alot cheaper here in canada than just about every good quality 6600gt Would this card be equal to a good 6600gt ? I heard lot's of people were having good sucsess at unlocking a couple extra pipe's with this card too,If i did unlock a couple pipe's and oc'ed would it be better than a 6600gt?

It's a little more powerful than the 6600GT. The core is based on the 6800 architecture, so I assume it's a little more powerful anyway...

I would really, really see if you can scrape up a good 60 more bucks and strech for the 6800GS.
