At those specs,

320/700 it should offer comparable fillrate/performance to the 9800 Pro.

yeah, it could become the 9800pro killer (200 bucks), but it will never be available for us, cause it's OEM-only.

I still dont understand one thing Nvidia does. Continously lowers clock speeds. I dont quite understand the point of cutting pipes then cutting mhz, They would be just tjhat much better if the 6800NU and 6800LE were clocked @ 350 like the GT

very nice, considering how poorly the 5900 series was setup.. this would be a much better contender for the 9800 Pro. But the thing is, most people probably don't even know about the 6800 series yet. I was at frys today looking for 6800gt's(they had 6 PNYs yesterday and they are all gone today) and a guy was telling his friend to get the 9800XT which still costs $499. The 6800NPs were right next to the XT's too at $300 (newb)
