le, Its good and out-performs anything in it's class. However if you want the extra performance then get the GT for a small bit more money. After that you can OC it to ultra speeds like mine is. Always go for eVGA. The LE only has 12 Pipes i think and the GT and Ultra have 16.

don't go LE as it will suffer from the 12 pipes tremendously vs. the GT with 16.


Go GT or bust.

Did some people here forget about me and my plain 6800 with the 16 pipe softmod and running at Ultra speeds? Whoo ha! 420mhz core, 256 DDR3 @ 1.1ghz.

The confusion is that the card isn't a GeForce 6800LE;

6800le - 8 pipes, 300/700

6800nu - 12 pipes, 325/700 (also known as plain 6800)

6800 limited edition - 16 pipes, 325/1100 (only by evga)

Yeah there's a difference between LE and then the Limited Edition presented by eVGA....but the people have been assuming it's the LE which generally is the more mainstream model opposed to performance.

But like everyone else I still say 6800GT is your best bang for the buck since you can OC it pretty well..

Actually hadn't realized you had done that Did you flash the VGA Cards BIOS to be able to get the 16 pipes?

You don't want the 6800LE and its 8 pipes. With today's graphics intesive games, you need to settle for no less than 16 pipes.
