They are both regular 6800's although for some stupid *** reason ASUS is labeling that other a 6800GT which IMO is complete false advertisement.

It's a 6800GT in terms of core and pipe's, and a 6800 memory wise.

And none of Asus's high end cards are amaziing, their all crap

ASUS makes great stuff IMO, at least boards anyway. I'm not too sure about their peripheral cards (video, nic, sound, etc...) and i have heard they are bad. I also know that PNY is one of those companies that is good for the user who knows nothing, or the user who knows nothign but wants bragging rights with their card. I dont think you can really go above and beyond with them, any further than the stock settings really.
