post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
If you were given the option of either of the two, which would you choose? Ex: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121206 vs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130220. Please provide a reason. Thanks.

k, the 6600GT because it uses GDDR3 (DDR1 on 6800XT) and supports OpenGL 2.0 (1.5 on 6800XT)

But, you might beable to unlock pipes on the 6800XT but im not shure.

I heard the 6800xt's don't unlock at all.

thought so, then the 6600GT by far
I think the order would go
6600LE<6800XT<6600GT

i doubt any pipes unlock, that 6800xt seems like a dog. they are clocked around 325/700 and have ddr1, and 8 pipes. they just named it xt to make it seem better than it is.

Well, If it is a 6800LE, BUY IT!

6800LE's overclock like mad, Not to mention that they ALWAYS unlock to at-least 12/5, And commonly 16/6 also!

For clocks, They can reach up to 374-400+ for core, And between 800-900+ for memory!
