lots lol. well in 3Dmark 05 this difference is about 1500 points. The 6600gt can play any of todays game in the right system just aswel as the 6800gt BUT the 6800gt will get better performance for longer.

a lot better. the 6600 gt is 12 pipes, is clocked slower. 6800 gt has 16 pipes and is faster.

@dhw200 the 6600gt actually only has 8pipelines. But they arent conventional pipelines as they are interlinked sumway, this helps the performance.

6600gt - (500core/1000mem) 4x2 pipelines (500/900) for some AGP versions
6800gt- (350core/1000mem) 16x1 pipelines

The cores are different though so don't let the 6600GT's higher core speed fool you.

I used eVGAs step up program and went from the 6600GT to the 6800GT and it's freakin awesome
