Is this eVGA GeForce 6800 GT Video Card better or worse than the original nvidia Geforce 6800 Ultra?

Thanks

I went with the GT because there is only 50MHZ of Clock Speed difference involved and with EVGA cards it can easily be overclocked further than 400MHZ Clock Speed, so save the $100 and get the GT

And BTW at newegg that same card is $40 cheaper, just bought it and it ROCKS!

Awsome thanks for the newegg link...http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...130-202&DEPA=0

So is it really not that much of a performance differance?

Is the eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Video Card better than my current BFG nvidia Geforce 5900 XT overclocked? The eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Video Card seems to have a slower clock speed by like a 100 megaherts slower than my current my BFG nvidia Geforce 5900 Xt overclocked editon.

this is the GT, i have it and overclocked it to 6800 Ultra speeds. Take a look at the benchmarks:

your 5900 is in there

It shows the Ultra for the 6800, but my GT runs just as fast.

Does this GT support DirectX9.c? It doesent say. Also i'm puzzled on the factor of it having a slower clock speed than my card and it still gets better frames. Do you happen to know?
