I'd place my bet on the 6800LE because of its 256-bit memory bus vs the 128-bit bus on the 6600GT. Thought the difference would be quite small.

How small because there is a 50$ differenc between 6800LE and 6600gt so the 6600gt is cheaper and it has SLI and the le doesn't have sli

Well you can only use SLi on a motherboard designed for SLi, so unless you already have intentions of running SLi, I'd get the LE and just overclock the nuts off of it.

How much is this LE costing you ??? You can get a BFG 6800 (standard 12 pipes) from outpost.com for 250...

And it will beat both of the cards you mentioned.

I've got da leadtek, needs no explanation

3d performance: core clock frequency - 560mhz
memory clock frequency - 1.02ghz
(overclocked)

not SLI but meh, p.s. light editions always suck!

In case of 9800se the SE wasn't sucky edition as you can softmod it and I always thought that SE=slow edition I'm getting the leadtek 6600GT or gigabyte 6800le
