Does anyone else think the 6800 Ultra is drastically overpriced? I found one for AU$799! that like 7900GTX territory! Yeah thanx a lot, I think the 7600GT is good enough for me...unless the X1800GTO can trump it. But I heard its just a half dead X1800XL lol. Haven't seen it in action.

the X1800GTO beats the 7600GT in two games - FEAR & Oblivion. everything else seems to go to the 7600GT.

Both FEAR & Oblivion run slightly faster on ATI hardware - this is true at any pricepoint so dont hold it against the 7600GT alone, remember the X1800GTO only wins in two games and costs more, uses more power and makes more noise.

Meh. I wouldn't touch Oblivion on any less than high settings, if not the highest settings. Any less would be a horrific disgrace to the title, in my opinion.

Default Re: IS the nVidia 6 Series dead?

Id personally buy the newer tech if it performs better. But to be honest from a useage stand point... the 6800GT and Ultra are hardly slouches. I still play everything on full settings at 1280x1024 with 4xAA and 8 or 16x AF without a problem at all (no stuttering ever sence I got 2gigs of ram). Sure it will slow down at 1600x1200 ... but my monitor does not go that high anyway and I really have no desire at the moment to buy one that is that big and does.

I play Oblivion with the highest settings at 1280x720+4AF. The performance is good considering the visuals. Yes the card is aging but it should still hold me above water until the G80 hits the market.

yeh, the 6 series appears to be dead, in the sense that it's no longer being produced, but as far as the performance of the cards, mine's still alive and kicking, while it may not be the fastest, it's still capable of handling any game with relative ease, i've been able to play every game i have at 1440x900 (monitor's native res), granted i've cut down alot on AA and AF, like in FEAR, it doesn't have AA or AF enabled

Wow, is that all? My good old (very old) Ti4600 was getting over 12000 with max OC. I dont think I want to pay so much for something that only doubles a three year old card's performance . Any 7600GT benches?

you guys are stupid, it's called GOOGLE, use it, every single review, especially the ones even on this own site, of the 7600 GT prove that it outperforms a 6800 GT, can you guys not read? seriously, look it up, in general it will perform better, that's not to say a 6800 GT won't do good either, is it that hard to understand? be assertive, solve your own issues, instead of having us tell you what's better, look it up
