unless you plan to get 2 6800s and run them in SLI I would say get the X800XT
you can get a X800XL AGP8x from newegg.com for 347 bucks i'll give u the link. its faster then the X800pro and it has 16 pipes. i would recommand the X800XL agp8x over the 6800GT since u will save some money and still getting something that = a 6800gt IF not a tad faster (i said Tad not more )Metalmurphy said:Well i FINALLY got the refund for my damaged 9800xt and im planning on buying a new card. But im not sure wich one to get. Im planning on either the x800 XT or the GF6800 GT. x800 xt is a bit more expensive but in toms hardwares benchmarks it isnt MUCH better. so i dunno. wich one do you guys recommend? Btw i can't buy pci-e cards
Ummm... marketing?Metalmurphy said:Well i've allways been an ATI guy but i have no problem to buy an nVidia. my only concern is why its so cheap :S
The problem is, you can find 6800gt agp's for around $350 these days. If you really want a bargain, get this BFG 6800 ultra OC for a little less than an x800xt.GeneralClaymore said:you can get a X800XL AGP8x from newegg.com for 347 bucks i'll give u the link. its faster then the X800pro and it has 16 pipes. i would recommand the X800XL agp8x over the 6800GT since u will save some money
There are things that SM3 can do that SM2b can't(limitations). Or not the same way. To do the same thing, work-arounds have to be programmed for SM2.x which is more work and more time.GeneralClaymore said:I wouldnt worry about sm3.0 not that many games use it. plus all it does is a speed boost. it been known ps2.0b can do what ever ps3.0 can do.
My thoughts exactly, my msi 6600 GT was 197 and it game with THREE free games, all of them mediocre but still. That and its clocked higher than most, and comes with a ton of other cool software.You know, unless you really need the serious power that a 6800GT will give you, a 6600GT would probably do everything you need, and you can get them for around $200
