    on AGP considering the lower clock speeds and the fact that it retains 12 pipes would probably mean that the GT will remain the crown holder on the AGP GT and GS debate.. then again I havent used AGP in about a year and havent kept up =Þ. there are rumors that it might be a GT/ultra core with soft restricted pipelines but new board/memory, if so then we have a beast. as far as pci-xpress goes, the GS is the crown holder. I'd love to see a few reviews or user accounts of performance on the card though =D.

    Hey im Suposed to get the PNY 6800GS OC 470Mhzcore/1100Mhzmemory for 310.99$ Canadian and i found a Leadtek 6800GT 350Mhzcore/1000Mhzmemory for 404.99$ Canadian, eVGA 7800GT 445Mhzcore/1050Mhzmemory for 411.99$ Canadian, XFX 7800GT OC 450Mhzcore/1050Mhzmemory for 411.99$ Canadian also

    which you think would be better? im getting also a V1 VGA from Thermalright to cool them but right now its going on my X700Pro

    Thx for your Help

    P.S i would prefer the Leadtek but you guys know more than me so help me out:p

    is it worth paying extra if the PNY 6800GS OC is better than the Leatek 6800GT? or the other cards?

    me too, the 7800GT is the best option but an other option is 2 6800GS in SLI

    Two 6800GS in SLI is another option, but a 7800GT is a much better one. Two 6800GS would be no faster than a 7800GT, but the 7800GT would be cheaper.

    yeah but i dont have a SLi mobo i only have a single PCI-Ex slot

    but you really think i should get the XFX 7800GT OC? does Leadtek do 7800GT? because i find the cooler on the 6800GT really cool

    Get the XFX 6800GS from new egg its hella OC'd and for the price of $205 you save like $50-$70 over the 6800gt for a 1fps drop oh WOW 1FPS DROP idc who your are but if you pay an extra $70 for 1fps your mental

    +pipelines > +mhz ... 350x16 = 425x12 ... we just need to see how far super.duper.OC.gs goes to compare with gt/ultra numbers ... some are getting 540/1200 rock solid ...

    AGP numbers don't matter ... 6800gt / gs / ultra are basicaly the same stuff either way.


    EDIT: what temps are you GS guys getting at these (520/1200mhz) numbers ? and what is the core voltages and ram speeds ?

    the real issue with the GS seems to be voltage.. not enough that is.. temp never goes very high at all, highest i've seen it was 55c

    I pulled mine back a touch to 500/1180, just to be a bit cautious.
    idle core temp @ 40C and after a couple of hours gaming, core is @ 55C but very quickly returns to 40C when in 2D mode. (Stock Cooling)
    @Renegade > Gee, grt OC your getting with that XFX. Mine does 530/1230 using 'detect optimal freq' but I'm a lil nervous of it that high so throttled back. :D

    6800GS @ 16x6 vs 6800GT at stock.

    the gs owns it hands down

    6800gs unlocked vs 6800 overclocked... tougher to say

    Got my eVGA 7800GT from NCIX only for $329, eVGA has lifetime warranty so I don't know why you would choose leadtek

    Well guys, the 6800GS AGP is really out in the market, unfortunately it clocks not the way this thread expected. (higher than the GT) Fortunately, some people say that they succesfully unlocked the 4 extra pipelines on the GS to make it 16pp - 6vp...

    Now i am waiting for benchmark results... Keep it coming guys...

    not sure why this was bumped, but eh

    i voted GS, mainly because both my XTs have nv42 (IE 6800GS pci-e cores) chips, and they OC like mad, i touched 475 mhz on stock volts, with stock cooling, i just need better cooling, and im sure it will go higher

    sure 16 pipes is fun and all, but what good are they when you have to squeeze a card hard to get over 400 mhz? hell my old nv40 based 6800le wouldnt even do 350 :(

    i do recognize that the GT with both cards stock is superior, but once OCed, nv42 rules nv40

    oh and wolverine, you do realise that the agp GS, which is the only one capable of unlocking, has the nv40 core and is basicly the same as a 6800GT with a locked quad? unlocking it would make it indentical in specs to a GT
