to be honest I'd rather an X800 because they take up a lot less space (phisically) less power, look a hell of a lot better, and don't need that "vacum cleaner" that the 6800's have
It seems like every game now is optimized for certain cards. Rainbow Six 3, Half life 2, and Call of duty are optimized for ATI. X2, Doom 3, Unreal Tournament "Series", and Unreal 2 are all optimized for nVidia. So really, they quite even in some ways, just not the same games.
Oh yea, that "vacuum cleaner" as you put it should also be implented on the X800 series, seeing how they can reach melting point temperature. Even ask one of our forum members who owns a X800 Pro about it. Pathetic.
