Default Good card? 6800 "Xtreme"?

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...CCODE=CANEM546

Looks like a good card, under $200 with 256mb of RAM and a 6800XT core. I'm just wondering if its memory runs at 256-bit.

yes it's memory runs on 256-bit.

by the way this card is worser than normal 6800 becasue it just has 8 pipes.

yes it 256-bit. You can probably oc it to get alot more out of it. For that price though you might want to get a 7600 gt. The 6800 is older tech and the 7600 gt for around $150-200 would be much better for future games.

if your going to spend $200 go for the GeForce 7600 GT (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...931185&CatId=0)

I plan to buy it (or splurge for the 7900GT) when i build my new mobo in February.........

plus it comes w/ a game......
