gt would be bottlenecked by the amd athlon xp 2400+ you have.

agree.. For these 16pipe cards a 64bit processor is the best way to exploit their power. I had a 3200barton and I never realized just how bottlenecked it was until I got an athlon64 3400 (1mbL2cache) and overclocked it to 2.31ghz. On my rig at 1280x1024 with 4xFSAA and 16xaniso I scored 17,500 3dmarks in ye old 3dmark 2001. (I still use 3dmark01 because it seems to be a better indicator of how your cpu fairs than 3dmark'03) 17,500marks was the same score I got before with my GT on the 3200barton at a mere 1024x768 with NO EYECANDY on.
You need a kickass cpu for the GT or Ultra..
I recommend with a 2400 though the 6800non ultra. Good price for good performance and I bet it overclocks pretty nice too.

I would get in on this deal. $416 for an XTPE from Dell. If it pans out it's awesome.
