Get the 256mb one.

May I ask why you're getting a 6800XT?

No way is it better than the 6800GT. The 6800GS is about the same price as the 6800, but more powerful. The 6800GS is also about $75 cheaper than the 6800GT, and is around the same performance, sometimes faster sometimes slower. The 6800XT is basically a watered down 6800, but slower than the 6600GT and they are basically equal in price. So basically all that's really worth buying in the Geforce 6 series is the 6600GT or the 6800GS. Basically Nvidia's "Elite Four" cards ATM are the 6600GT, 6800GS, 7800GT and 7800GTX.

The 6800GS easily beats the 6800 ultra when overclocked on stock cooling. But I say the 7800GT.
