Showdown: BFG 6800 GT vs Gainward 5800 (pics)

Hey there, everybody. I thought I'd post some pics of just how advanced IMO the 6800 GT is, especially when compared to my "old" vid card, a Gainward Geforce FX 5800 (yes, 5800).

I attached a massive heatpipe to the 5800 'cause I hated its leafblower-like sound. It's amazing to see the difference between the overly-complicated 5800 and the elegant (and astoundingly fast) 6800 GT. The pics are attached.

Yes! The GT is cowering in terror. 'Till it's installed, at which point it kicks the everloving #%*! out of the 5800 Ultra. No matter what resolution I set the GT at, Far Cry with all the settings on "Very High" runs between 50-75 fps. Methinks the CPU (AthlonXP 2500+ overclocked to 2147MHz/400FSB) is now the bottleneck.

Only disconcerting thing: the heatpiped 5800 Ultra never got hotter than 75 degrees (I watch the temperature indicator on a second monitor) during gameplay. The BFG 6800 GT OC regularly hits **91 degrees**!! Zikes!!

peaks out something like 65 when i'm gaming
