6600gt 6800?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking at the AGP versions of these two. I found a 6800 here

My question is will the 6600gt be better because of the ddr3?

6800 is better because the memory is 256 bit over 128. and you get double the pipelines. go for 6800

why not wait for a little longer some time this week or probably next week to get a 6800gs agp?
The price should be around 200

I would go for 6800 because you can unlock the pipelines to 16 and shaders to 5-6

its not a slam dunk but the 6800 should be a better card. if the 6800 gs is coming in agp i would do that, it is a very solid card.

Just to back up the other 4 or 5 posts. The 6800 is a bit better than the 6600gt. If the GS is released soon it'd be a good option depending on the $ you want to spend. It performs as well sometimes better than the GT and is a good bit less expensive.
