6800GT, 6800ultra is just a waste of money crap, any 6800GT can do 6800ultra speeds on stock cooling

Grab the 6800GT and download RIVATUNER. Also, look up the article in CPU magazine that tells you how to "unlock" the extra pixel pipelines on the card using that software. Then OC the card to 6800 Ultra specs or beyond....

There are no extra pipes to unlock on the 6800GT, it is the 6800 (non GT) that has 4 extra pipes to unlock. Both the GT and Ultra have 16 pipes.

Oh, my bad. I just remembered reading the article about the extra pipelines... Thanks for setting that straight!
