I just noticed the 6800 100 times on pg 1. Excellent work PZEROFGH. It made me laugh.

So I can get a...

- eVGA 6600GT for 182.99 (I'm just tossing this in for price comparison. It's has been decided against)
- eVGA 6800 for 242.99
- ATI X800 XL for 299.99

Here's a link with benchmarks. The X800XL is on top in all cases over the 6600GT and 6800

Only thing is I have a P4 2.4Ghz, 512MB PC2100 (Soon to be 1GB PC2100, board max PC2700), AGP 4x, 350W PSU. It was decided at one point that a 6600GT would be best for my comp. Who knows....

No doubt about it though. 6800GT is the best all around value and 7800 is the best card by far.

Shopping some more the X800 XL goes for around $450. So maybe I should snag it for $299. Remember I'm talking Canadian

I'm not an overclocker, but how does a person unlock the pipelines?

Get the new 6800GS, same performance as a 6800GT but much cheaper. They have it at newegg.
