Default 6600GT vs 6800

Okay, one last question before I order the final components for this new rig. Is the extra 50 - 60 bucks worth getting a 6800 over a 6600GT? How superior is the card?

The 6800 puts up a good bit higher score in 3dmark05 over the 6600GT. So yea, the 6800 is better. But the 6600GT is great, you can't really go wrong with either. If you got the cash get the 6800 if not the 6600GT is a good choice.

My buddy just got a 6600GT, he averages about 200FPS in counter strike source with high settings, so it will probably suit your needs just fine.

I know, sorry. I did a quick search but I couldn't find the threads I was looking for. I'm done rehashing old questions now.
