Both cards are virtually the same in terms of performance (check out the Doom 3 benchmarks for example, there's honestly nothing in it), but the Ultra has 50 mhz more core clock speed and memory speed. But since both cards are overclockable anyway, this is a non-arguement.

Well there s an exeption to the rule the GT is the same chip as the Ultra difference being durring the making of the chip even tho the same process is used for both doesnt mean they both perform or turn out the same .The Ultra chips are the better chips
of the crop and can handle higher overclocks and there are a few changes on the board as well to make it stable.Its still not clocked to its limits . But meets the performance and stability requirements there wanting to achieve.

You guys...let someone who HAS the 6800 do the talking . Well I got the GT for the reason that it was $100-200 cheaper than the Ultra. The fact is, the GT is a just an underclocked version of the ultra...well I overclocked it and TADA!!! It's now faster than the stock Ulrta. HOWEVER and cappy said, the Ultra is going to be cooler and more stable to overclock even more. Get the GT, way better deal.

Doom 3 Benchmarks:

The new NVidia video cards blow ATI out of the water. For future reference (and for all others reading this thread), the NVidia 6800 Ultra is the best one out in the market, however, it is one of the most expensive cards.
