Re: 3dmark05 pro is nice.
I've never cared about SM3.0 on mt 6800GT. When i purchased the GT, only x800 pro was available so it was a no brainer. Damn, in Australia X800XT PE are still not readily available and when they are the're about AUS$300 more than what i paid for my 6800GT.
GT is really the sweet spot and ATI stuffed it with killing the pipes on the pro.
