6800 is not good value for the money. Save money and get the 6600 GT, or go all out and get the 6800GT.

6800 is the better choice

they are both in the same price range~

6800 190$
6600GT 160$

the 6800 has more pipes (more can be unlocked) and even full stock the 6800 out performs the 6600gt by a couple fps
Because people hate searching.
Best ram guide.
Different cpu types.
Good video card guide

I'd actually say get the 6800. it is a more capable GPU despite not having GDDR3. you can unlock the pipes so it has the full 16.
