Default Re: 6600gt Agp Vs Fx5900 Ultra Agp

wow, that's a wicked 6800, my guess is that they are getting the 6800 ultra rejects also, and i'd go with the 6800 non-ultra as well, it's better than both, and around the same price, however, if you had only those 2 as an option, go with the 6600 GT, it's bound to perform better in dx9 titles, and it has ps3.0 not just 2.0 like the 5900 ultra, which actually doesn't have true 2.0 support and actually runs games horribly, most games (far cry, hl2, cs:s, halo) default to ps1.1 or ps1.4 with the 5900 ultra, basically, stay away from it, it was good in it's day, but not now

and no, the X700 pro isn't as good, my friend has one and it was on par with my 5900 ultra, and slightly worse than a 6600 GT
