I had a 6800 (vanilla) and it played every game I had on high settings (HL2, BF2 and the others are sim racing games)


What is your budget for the whole system? as the AMD 64 3700 san diego will is the same price (in the UK) as the P4.

6800 then and you never listed a budget.

The 6800gt has 16 pipelines, and gddr3 memory. The 6800 has 12 pipelines and DDR memory. The core speed on the 6800 is a little lower as well.

The 6800 is a great card though, with the pipelines being able to be unlocked, and overclocks nicely.
