The 6800GS is better then the 6800GT if you think price performance wise, it ties/beats the 6800GT at lower resolutions and looses by a bit at higher. All good reasons for me to get one

if i OC the gt though to ultra speeds would it have a considerably difference compared to the gs considering it has less pipelines etc. I will be playing at high resoloutions so the GT still seems better.

By high I mean 1600x1200
And if you got the money then get the GT, it's obviously better, all I'm saying is that the GS is much better bang for the buck especially if your monitor does not support 1600x1200 in games...

I'd still go for the ASUS myself. I love their motherboards, and I've heard nothing but good about their video cards except the price. They look the coolest too.

Asus, never heard of Sparkle. But preferably a XFX, Leadtek, eVGA if you can find them cheap.

yeh ive been reading up on vid cards recently. i know that this has better grpahics in Sm3.0 etc. but it gets lower fps than the x850xt which is where i started so im really torn between these 2 cards. because id rather have no sm3.0 and have a playable game.

But the thing is the performance variance between those two cards is so small that any game the 6800GT can't play, the X850XT won't be able to play either. They're of the same generation and price range basically. Only when comparing difference price ranges and/or generations do you find instances where card A will run this game but card B won't.

but in msot bench's the x850 will win by about 10-20 fps (in some cases) and taht may mean a playable game and a non playable game
