Default video card comparison

I currently have a evga 6600 gt agp based and am planning on upgrading my system a bit. Planning on buying a new pci-e mobo, a 3200+ venice, and another stick of ram to dual channel. I was wondering how these three video cards stack up against each other: 6600 gt
6800 gs - the one I want to get
6800 gt
things like : overclockability, loudness, overheating issues, power usage, performance etc..

GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Motherboard
NZXT Apollo Black ATX Mid tower Case
AMD Phenom II X6 1055t @ 3.8 GHZ
Rosewill RCX-Z1 CPU heatsink
Sapphire TOXIC Edition Radeon HD 5850 1GB @ 800/1175
2 x 2GB CORSAIR DOMINATOR 240-Pin DDR3 1600mhz
G.Skill Sniper SSD 60gb x2 RAID 0
BFG Tech GS-550 550W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V V2.8 SLI PSU

6800 GS hands down. There is only a few frames of difference between the two, and the GS is about 80 bucks less, 6800GS no doubt about it.

6800GS and 6800GT are equal at stock, but overclocked, the 6800GS beats the 6800GT. 6800GS is pretty much the mid-range card this generation, but if you want a good card, go for a 7800GT.
