The 6800GTs are good, I had a FX 5900 went from 1050 to 4628 on 3DMark 05. I still need to teat my system with my overclock settings.

going based on your cpu, you might want to get the 6600 GT. Either way, both are great cards, nvidia done did good this time. =)

6600GT isnt going to cut it if he plays at 1280x1024 with 4xAA 8xAF....

I was thinking about 6600gt first.
But I want my card last longer......

:pGood choice! Even with the CPU bottleneck you and I both have, the 6800GT boosts gaming performance through the roof compared to lesser cards. In newer games, the CPU bottleneck is less pronounced, as the majority of the heavy lifting is done by your graphics card.

I effectively doubled my gaming performance with the swap from a 9800Pro.
My weeny CPU is barely noticeable, and has no problem whatsoever with any game I throw at it, and I run the highest in game settings and won't be caught dead without AA and aniso, usually 4x/8x

6800GT all the way man. Its so easy to hit ultra with them.. and they are badass cards that will last for a good amount of time I think :D

But all those 6800GTs are quite expensive.
The cheapest I can find are Chaintech's and Leadtek's, both $299

OMG I just spent $310 on my iAUDIO M3L, now another 300... =_=

If it's any consolation, my BFG was $400, so your not making out too bad at all;)

If you can't wait, get the 6600GT now... but if your willing to wait, save up the cash for a 6800GT, it'll be worth it! :D

Guess I may have no time to order a 6800GT.

I found newegg selling Leadtek Winfast 6800GT 256MB GDDR3 for only 289 free ship

Is this a good deal? Or Is newegg cheating?

I was been cheated by newegg last time with my motherboard

I read in other forums that people bought the leadtek 6800GT was experiencing artifacts and dead cards.
Seems there are many people who bought the leadtek 6800gt from newegg got the same bad cards.

I am so scared...T_T

I don't think you'll have any problems with any brand you choose. They're really not all that different. Of course, there is always a chance you could get a bad card but I think the chances are small.

I'm surprised you've had a bad experience with newegg also. They're one of the more popular mail order places and most seem really happy with them. I've always been happy with them but I've probably only ordered 3 or 4 items from them.

if ur goin to order that leadtek, make sure its not the lite version which has slower memory. Alot of people bought the lite version not knowing that it was the lite.

I think their selling practise is crippled.
They claim they are not tech people and don't check product they sold. This is obvious they want to evade responsibilities. And if they don't check the product they should buy from good wholesellers.
Then why I received an opened-used-not-working motherboard? They repack returned as new retail?

I had good experience with newegg, too. But they are on a down slope recently.

And people said they got bad cards from newegg, too.

I saw newegg website claimed it is 1GHz GDDR3 version with 350MHz core.

But god knows they ship the right one :rolleyes:
