If you unlock the addition 4 pipelines in this baby you have yourself a 7800 in my opinion. (For $100 less)
First of all the 6800GS does NOT unlock at all. Many of them dont overclock at all either. The 6800GT is still the best option for the 6800 series. Also, I believe the GS is only PCI-E and has not been released for AGP yet. All the 6800 series cards have been stopped (all the AGP anyways). Get the 6600GT, they're about $135-$140 on www.newegg.com, its much better than a regular 6600.

The 6800's and 7800's have two totally different cores. I would agree with most and go with the 6600gt.

You cant unlock the 6800GS and its nowhere even close to a 7800 in performance.

Ya all youre doing is unlocking it into a 6800GT cause thats what the 6800GS AGP is...a 6800GT with 4 pipes disabled.
