Default 6800GT vs 6800GS

This is so confusing, 6800Gs vs 6800GT.
With all the reviews going on the net it gets more and more inflexible to choose one.
The GT has 16 pipes vs 12 on the GS but the GS has higher clock speed and can be overclocked to insane speed.

Any Ideas?

I can't see why someone would spend the extra money on the GT when you can get a better performing GS (thinking about one of the OC XFX GS cards) for less. And with the expectation that an AGP version of the card will be out in a few weeks, there's really no reason IMNHO to get a GT now. As a matter of fact, I thought I read something that stated nvidia was going to discontinue all 6800's except the GS. hmm..

The 6800GS is DEFINATELY the better buy. For starters, it's performance is equal to that of GT. It is usually behind by a frame or two, sometimes it's even better, but at $70 cheaper, that's a steal! This thing also overclocks like woah and with even a slight overclock it'll be able to kill the 6800GT (You can buy factory OC'd 6800GS's that will dominate the GT), it also uses less power.

LanceX is right too, the entire 6800 line has been discontinued except for the 6800GS and 6800XT. Definately go with the 6800GS.

Go with GS. There is no difference in performance between the two, and you save a lot of money.

What if the GT and the GS are the same price where I'm going to get it from.
The GT is only 20 $ more than the GS.

Well if they are the same price I would base it on what resolution you will most likely be gaming at. Like Zeero said, when both at stock the 6800GT does take a bit of a lead over the GS at high (1600x1200 and up) resolutions. Though if you are going to be gaming on med/low (1280x1024 and lower) I would highly suggest the 6800GS, as it performs similarly if not better, and can be overclocked very easily to rape to the 6800GT.

I use med res all the time, but mix it with AA and AF.

Even if you buy the GS, you can still activate the 16 pipelines through flashing, but you better be sure of what you're doing...

Are you sure ?

Default Re: 6800GT vs 6800GS

The idea that you can overclock a 6800GS to smoke a 6800GT is not relevant. Making a statement like that makes it sound as if you couldn't overclock a 6800GT. 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?
