Default which Geforce 6800GT

ok on newegg, i found three PCI-E Geforce 6800GT Graphics cards with identical .....stats.

one is 25 dollars more than the other, and if they all preform identically i would very much like to save 25 dollars.

well here are the links, please tell me if they are at all different from each other.

also, geforece 6800GT, is this a powerful-enough card to play upcoming games?

Thanks a lot.

it's because some companies offer better quality...I say don't bother with any of those and go with this:

eVGA 6800GT for $304 and free 2nd day shipping...just ordered myself that very card no more than an hour ago.

Congratz.

The eVGA one is the most reliable. You'll have the least problems with it.

If you still want Newegg.com, they have one on there too.

If you want to save money, the XFX one should do fine.

Because different brands make better quality cards, Evga is the best and they are all in the same price range so dont worry about the small difference in price; just buy this from wherever you want:

lol I know...I own a 6800GT AGP version I'm selling it to go to PCI-E though, plus I've owned a 6600GT from eVGA as well so I know all about their quality

as I said and other people are now saying, they are better quality.

The one at newegg is $5 more expensive PLUS $5 for shipping whereas zipzoomfly has it for $304 plus free 2nd day, but meh whatever.

If you absolutely have to go with newegg then I'd say get a leadtek card as it's $295 on there I believe
