This 6800 shutter stuff scares me, but can someone give me some good advice? I really want to play EQ2 as well as I can, and there is nothing out there to support SLI for EQ2 either, so it's a single card solution at this point and it's come down to these two.
If you're starting from scratch and plan on dedicating a lot of time to this game, I diffently would go the PCIe route with a X800XT.
I've used both the 6800gt(had orginally and kept) and the X800XT and the ATI card ran the game better. Granted nothing spectacular(still gets its ass kicked with shadows, flora, group battling, and higher settings) but nonetheless beter then the GT.
Not to mention the PCIe is a lettle more future proof.
