yes

To those who say the GT, why should I get that card when the X800 has 12 pixel pipelines to it's 8? It also has a higher 3dMark. I'm just trying to understand, not discrediting your opinion.

Get a 6800GS for $200. It will destroy the 6600GT, and it beats the 6800 ultra when overclocked. If it's to much get a 6800 vanilla, which will also be better than a 6600gt for about $170. EDIT: if you cant afford the 6800gs then get that x800, its slightly better than the 6600GT and the 6800 vanilla, and for $100 thats a good deal. But first try to get the 6800GS, it will destroy all of them.

Why can't you get anything else? Out of the two, the X800 is better.
