TBH you not going to notic that much of a difference between the two. Your best bet is to get the 6800gs and another gig of RAM.

multiple things wrong with that post,
1. He wants an AGP card, not PCIe
2. He has an Intel processor not an AMD s939
3. NEVER ask for reps

My opinion, I agree with nugget.

try the 7600gt out preforms the 6800gs and gt in some cases also better than a 1600xt and 1600pros in crossfire so the 7600gt is a great buy and is about the same price as the 6800gs

Alright people stop confusing the poor guy you all keep suggesting PCI-E cards that he cannot use. Snape the 7800gs is an excellent card and should be able to run Morrowind at max or close to max settings without a problem. If I were you I would get the EVGA 7800gs superclocked as it is the best 7800gs currently on the market. A x850xt is also an excellent card in the same performance and price range. If you decide to get one of those make sure you look around as the prices for them flucuate a lot between different retailers.

Is there really not much difference between the 6800GS and the 7800GS? There's at least $200 AUD difference in the prices!
I'm thinking about getting the EVGA 7800GS Superclocked, as mentioned above, and still getting an extra gig of RAM not too far down the line - but now I'm not so sure.
Also it confuses me a little as to why there are so many different brands and versions of the 7800GS, the prices seem to vary a lot, there seems to be little consistency.

I think at this point it's down to how much you're willing to spend. The 6800GS and 7800GS have pretty much the same features, and their only difference is pipelines, clock speeds, or ultimately performance.

You can read this review on the card you suggested to see how well it performs:

I went into a store today, and somebody told me they could order me in a 7800GS from the manufacturer, and that it would only cost me $200 AUD!! Any idea how this can be correct? Has the cost for a 7800GS just dropped through the floor, or does this guy not know what he's on about?
