Default r600 or 8800 ultra?

with my setup would having nvidia over ati make a difference, since my mobo is optimised for nvidia?

Well the 8800Ultra is just a 8800GTX, that is heavily overclocked from 575/1800 to 650/2160. I could be wrong on the clocks of the ultra though. Take a look at this thread:
ATI / AMD HD 2900 XTX - Owned By The GTX still?

b1gapl,

True but 8800Ultra will have also much higher shader clock. I heard it will have speed of 1.6GHz or something like that. GTX has 1.35GHz shader speed.

Anyway, 2900XT is slightly faster than 8800GTS and it will be released on May.

2900XTX might get delayed to Q3 2007, because of it's poor performance.

Final 8800 Ultra specs disappoint

It's going to be a paper launch and it's only going to be clocked to 612/2.16GHz, I don't even think you'll be able to even get one because they are going to be so rare, even more so than the 7800GTX512 was.

8800 Ultra edition cards will be few and far between

what? NO!!!! I wanted the HD 2900 XTX to come out in May!!

darn it, so much for getting Hellgate: London in the summer.... :-(. My computer doesnt even work because i disabled the freakin graphics card n needs repair, i dont even have Windows XP Pro Setup CD, mine was built!

o well, that gives me more time to get a job n get the money. Bad benchmarks im afraid lol, HD 2900 XTX must of glitched itself.
