I'm sure you can get the extra 50MHz out of the core.

I wouldn't be so sure if it's the old NV40 core. I had a GF6800 and it went nicely over 400MHz core but many have had cards that haven't managed to OC so well.

Yup, just like I said, many NV40 cores just don't manage to break the 400MHz barrier.

So is this basically a 6800 128 MB AGP w/ ramped up clock speeds and 256 MB GDDR3 ram? Because if it is, I don't see the point? It better be the core on the 6800GS PCI e which owns some serious ass.

There is a point, actually many of them:
1. Dumping away old NV40 cores from storages, >90% of them do 12/5@350MHz = money to NVIDIA, new AGP cards to customers.
2. It's basically the same card as Asus V9999GE = 90% of GF6800GTs performance, same performance as X800Pro AGP, see reviews (Google is your friend).
3. No other GF6800 series AGP cards are produced anymore = fastest NVIDIA based AGP card that is still delivered and produced.

Actually concerning your third point there is a 6800XT AGP being delivered and produced, but you're right the 6800GS is the fastest availible for AGP right now unless you can still find a GT or Ultra lying around.

My 6800NU can bench at 430 with stock cooling (3dm03, 05, aquamark)

i wonder if these can unlock pipes
