Hmm the X800 would certainly be cheaper but by the time it is released, the 6800 would have had its price dipped

The clock speed on the ati card is a lot more then nvidia are saying there cards are going to be . A gap of about 200mhz would that make alot of difference.

i am definatly buying nvidias card no matter what i have been an nvidia fan as long as i since voodoo 3 ended and will continue to be . I don't know if the 6800 is the mid range , high range or even bottom . Nvidia could bring out a better card of the geforce 6 range.

Hmm, the X800XT looks awfully competitive on paper(ermm, screen?) Thanks for the specs

hmm to think of it... is it still ok for the 9800XT to sell at almost the same price as the 6800?

They are when it comes to farly detailed stuff but the nvidia does double its frames most of the time.

Look at the bottom graph . I think though when the x800 comes out the 9800 will drop in price. Guys do you know any website that would let me import a geforce 6800 from usa to uk.
