Re: 6800GT vs. 6800GS CO SC
All nv4x cards now fall into pretty much the same performance segment, save for 6800's with 700mhz ram and/or a 128 bit memory bus.
Can you unlock yours? I think the CO SC has some quick-ass memory to it to make up for the loss of a quad. I can't remember your mobo, are you using PCI-e or AGP? IIRC the PCIe GS cards can't be unlocked, so you'd be stuck with just overclocking.
I think you should consider yourself lucky that you got a 256 bit memory bus equipped vidcard back from them... Wow, and nv4x is 3 generations back.
Also what games are you gonna try to run with this card?
