it does have extra pipelines, but it's not much faster cuz it has lower clock speeds than the 6600GT

Yes, but you can unlock those pipelines sometimes and OC em too :P

I recommend getting the vanilla 6800 if you can spend the extra cash, otherwise, get a 6600GT.

Agreed, a couple months ago the price differential didn't really justify it, but now they are damn near the same price.

Hopefully you get lucky and can unlock the pipes
