Default Re: 6800GT vs 6800GS

I'd say about equal. The o/c GS will beat a GT but will it match the performance of an o/c GT? Thats irrelevant because you're not sure what level either card will clock to. You can only compare the baseline speeds. If I were to buy a new card in this price range it would be the GS as they are aprox $50 cheaper. The GS also has the supposed fixes to the 6 series such as the purevideo issue. The only downside is that you will have to use a PCIE system for the GS. There is a rumor that an AGP GS will be released possibly built on crippled NV40 cores. That means a possibility in unlocking extra pipes. Currently, the GS is new silicon and has no extra pipes to unlock.

Most of the 6800GT's I have seen would overclock to around 6800 Ultra settings. So the best bet is to compare apples to apples here. 6800GS v/s 6800GT at stock = 6800GT winner, 6800GS overclocked v/s 6800GT overclocked = 6800GT winner. Any questions?
The benchmarks I've read shows 6800GS to be sligthly faster. And it seems to be very overclockable and able to reach 6800U or better performance.

Then you've seen funny benches. At 1600x1200 the GT is always faster. Also OCing a GT yeilds more performence [16x12 pipes]. My GT did 425/1150 for gaming, no GS can touch that.
