i mainly use it at 1024*864 and 1284*1024 resolution. will 6800 nu be sufficient? i got the money for GT but i just dont wanna waste it.

thanks

Go for the GT.. you can always use the extra pipes and more memory down the road if not now...

If you want to use higher levels of AA/AF the gt will come in handy now

Yup Gt ;) Although you might wanna look into another stick of 512mb of memory soon... that will make a huge difference

I upgraded my old Leadtek TI4600 to a Leadtek 6800GT and I am very happy with it. And like JakUp said, another stick of 512mb would also be a nice upgrade.

GT is the way to go if you've got the money.

Games... Try pulling out a 512mb stick if you have a gig. You will get hard drive thrashing in all new games. Especially Doom3 and FarCry

I would go for the GT because you get 16 pipes and faster memory and it will be faster when playing your games.and you should look in to getting another 512mb of ram.

If you got the money, 6800GT all the way!

Just get a 6800 GT. It works great with both of my systems. I think it's the best card for the money. At least until the 6600 GT shows up for $199!!!!!

A 6800nu should be fine for the resolutions you want. If you want to use high levels of aa, you will struggle with the 6800nu. It's limited by having only 128mb of memory. Personally I'm very happy with my 6800 nu, but of course a GT or Ultra would be better.
