Basically a 'pipeline' is a series of shaders, and texture filters. So the more 'pipelines' the more amount of shading and texture filtering there is going on?

Owhh geez guys come on, not this crap again

What Beed just said there is basicly correct, the X800xt VS. 6800 Ultra is a tie and the X800 Pro loses to the 6800GT merely because it has 4 fewer pipelines

And then the 6600GT justs klobbers everything down below that

Yes, I paid $400 for comparable or even less performance I could have gotten for $250 with a 6800 NU. Its better than the 9800XT though, which is good.
