Default 6800GT > Ti 4200...hahahaha

Well, that title is the understatement of the year, hahaha. The 6800GT got here today, and man is it SWEET! I took everyone's advice (in the 'PC Gaming' section) and bought Half Life 2, and all I can say is WOW. The graphics are stunning, and the environments are more interactive than any I've ever played. I'm hoping to overclock the card after a week or so, but for now, here are some benchmarks for comparison. The rest of my system is in my sig.

PNY GeForce4 Ti 4200 @ stock speeds:
-3DMark2001SE…10,113
-3DMark03…1,546
-3DMark05…N/A (application won’t run)
-Aquamark3…14,949

PNY GeForce 6600GT @ stock speeds (500/900):
-3DMark2001SE…13,601
-3DMark03…7,215
-3DMark05…3,191
-Aquamark3…42,949


Leadtek GeForce 6800GT @ stock speeds (350/1000):
-3DMark2001SE…15,162
-3DMark03…10,099
-3DMark05…4,661
-Aquamark3…45,426

I'll post the overclocked 6800GT scores on a later date, but for now I'm very happy with the way Half Life 2 looks.

PizzatheHut06, great dude. The 6800 GT is a perfect card, and its going to be good for awhile. Hell lol, i was OC my system the first day lol. I recommend waiting though. Just make sure you have some type of moderate cooling system.

The 6800GT's im betting will still cry on the HDR, look they couldnt even run the demo with AA, and im sure valve has SLI'ED 6800 ultra's or a r520

That's because their OC's are tiny as hell and can barely be considered an OC
