To be honest, I never logged the FPS but if my setup with a 6600GT can handle it at max with no lag then the 6800 which is a small step higher can.

well fanboyisim aside, apollo is a good brand. I bought a 6600gt and have it in my parents computer, and it works great. you can save money by going for the "other brands" like my albatron 6800gt
