Hello!!
I need some advice on buying a 6800gt card
I doubting between 2 posibilities, The leadtek A400tdh or the MSI nx6800gt.
I won´t care about overclocking posibilities but i would like to Know which one of this cards run cooler and quieter, since i suppose that they´ll performance is at the same level.

The card will be mounted on a gigabyte K8vt800, amd 754 3000+ processor with 2x512mb kingston ddr 400 ram.

What do you recommend me????

Thanks in advance!!

I just recently bought the Leadtek version. It has a massive heatsink on it and runs at 54 C under full load. It's very quiet and came with 2 games. Prince of Persia 2 and Splinter Cell 2. I'd recomend the Leadtek of the two.

The 6800s may be, but my 6600 GT cost $187 and that was the second cheapest of the lot.

I think MSI will be quiter, since they're the OEM of dell. but that's only if u get the copper cooler version.

the responses here are going to be biased towards whatever card the poster bought (usually).

bah, who cares. go with the BFG 6800GT. lifetime warranty with stock overclock and a great price? how can you go wrong?

Why does the NV5 suck?
Just curious why you have this opinion!
My NV5 is working like a charm.
