Recommended Posts

Ive been researching an the 6600 gt has a memory of 1000mhz and the core is usually 400 ..

 

the 6800 has only 700 mhz and a core of 325 ... it does have 12 pipelines but what difference wouldit make btwn the 2 cards ..

 

do they perform the same?

 

the 6800 is about $50 more also... is it just a marketing ploy?

The 6800 outperforms the 6600GT by a good margin, especially at higher res with AA/AF. Those 4 pipes make a HUGE difference, much like the difference between an 6800 and 6800GT/Ultra. If you buy the right 6800, there is a good chance of flashing it to a GT. There is no chance of making a 6600 anything other than a 6600.

 

But by looking at your sig, I'd say a 6800 is pointless you will bottleneck severly on that CPU.

If you can OC your CPU to around 2.3-2.4ghz I think it might be worthwhile to get a 6800. Don't qutoe me on that, I'm not overly famaliar with Athlon XP's. A64s and P4s I know like the back of my hand.

 

Just grab a moble 2500+ and OC the snot out of it. :)
