From what i see
6800nU-only handicap to 6800gs is ddr memory
6800xt-its the 8 pipelines, but has ddr3 memory.

both cards have 256mb and are 256bit. So which one is better. I can't get a g80. Heck, i can't even afford the upcoming g71.

Dont play the waiting game with video cards.........its useless.
I thought you would know what your company of all people is doing




Google it, you will have only emulation unless you get a G80 it's best not to get anything at all or get low end to hold you over till it is released.

Excuse me?
Yeah im using the stepup program to get the 7900 when it comes out. The G80 is still 6 months away so I'll have plenty of money to get one by then.
