    I would go GT, the GS is about $200 and the GT is anywhere from $230 to $300 on pricegrabber.....

    XFX GS oc owns the GT, though. Despite the "pipes". And is cheaper.

    i see the GS as the perfect "hold me over card" if you need a new card, until the Dx10 cards come out
    but thats me :)

    Sorry, but thats some really flawed logic. Take a look at the new review on the XFX 6800gs "XXX edition." I pretty much beats the GT in all game tests and synthetic benchmarks.

    Also, The 1800 XT only has 16 pipes compared to the 24 pip GTX, yet it manages to preform just bellow it.

    Remember: Bigger number dont nesesarily mean better.

    In lieu of its amazing price/performance, my vote went to the GS.

    I don't think the GS will beat the GT only by lower price

    Price vs performance, the 6800GS wins heavily.

    Performance at stock really depends on the model, for instance the Golden Sample 6800GT is still a very fast card (400/1100 guaranteed Ultra speed) and would likely compare well with the XXX 6800GS even at those high clocks.

    Performance overclocked depends on the card, my 6800GT does 425/1200 24/7 with no problem (stock was 350/1000) so id wager thats pretty competitive with even a nicely overclocked 6800GS. My card is AGP so no HSI chip (compared to the PCIe version) so temps are pretty nice too, idling at roughly 45 degrees, loading in the high 60s depending on the game (it will occasionally peak over 70 degrees) even with my overclock.

    However, pretty academic now, the 6800GT is very hard to find so there is really no choice but to get the 6800GS anyway and at the price you'd be a fool not to really. :)

    Some 6800GT are sold overclocked out of the the box just like my BFG. I'm sure the above test results would favor the GT even greater with the higher clocked brands. I must also say to this day I have no real need to update my AGP based PC because the 6800GT runs all my latest games at 1280x1024, my max LCD resolution, at very smooth framerates.

    Sli is pointless, really... Ok, I had a 6600gt. Now, I just upgraded to 7800gt, which cost me £220. I'm selling my 6600gt for £90, so the upgrade cost me £130. About a price of another 6600gt (new). Now if u sli 6600gt, they'll still be slower than one 7800gt.

    Sli is for people, who have too much money and can buy 2 top of the range cards. for everyone else, there's just no point, that's why it died ages ago, when it was around for 3Dfx voodoo cards!!!

    Oh, and go with a 7800gt, a lot more future proof, with a bit of luck, you'll be able to overclock it to near gtx speeds (like me, 3dmark03 score of over 16000p)

    Absolutely the GS always Go with the latest I love NVIDIA ,I love the 6800GS.
    - its 0.11 fabrication which produce less heat and overclock more(over theGT)
    - its very efficient when it comes to power consumptions its on pare with my 66GT
    with more memory and pipes.
    -If you cant believe me this GS is like the 6800 Ultra version for half the price
    even me can't believe it but all the facts say so.
    -remember its based on the 7800 GT PCB (the 7800 GT board) and its definitely and + for him .
    - easy to sell considering the price. and getting the 7600 Gt in 3 months form now.
    BTW : Didn't you read the Guru3d review???
    and see this:

    were the GS at 1000/425

    --------------
    BTW: The 6800 GT accept it or not is an outdated product and is not worth it to spend that 80$ or something on it , Would U guys be more subjective! Thanx
    simple equation : Buy (6800 GS + X-fi Extreme music) for around 310$ (
    or Buy 6800 GT and stick to onboard sound Card fro around 280$
    If I want to sell the GT part the person who will buy it will say: Its very old isn't it ???
    forgive me but the majority of the crowd here own the GT part and will not accpet that a
    new less part would be the same as thier's (me too) ..
    or go for the 7800 GT.
    BTW : Did you saw the 3dmark 05 score !!!! Fantastic.
    Go for the latest and most advanced one.Thanx
    Dont forget the Guru ..you know

    I can't wait for the AGP version to hit the shelves where i live. It seems to be a pretty cool card for it's price.

    BTW: if the AGP version is based on the nv 40 and for a lucky
    person he get all the pipes working he will get a the Yule gift right
    at time...Hope Us all all all the best.thanx

    I don't think SLI will ever die if you have a SLI ready board a bought a 6600GT awhile ago and go get another 6600GT you will get performance of that of a 6800GT I belive.....and also you can build a SLI system for about $1000 and get way more performance over a single card system unless your talking about a top top of the line card (witch in my opinion isn't worth it unless you have too mutch money)

    Not entirely true. The only really viable reason for going with SLI/Crossfire is if you are building an ultra high-end system using two of the fastest available cards. As there is no alternative single-card solution that offers similar performance, SLI/Crossfire is the only option. Two 7800GTX512 or X1800XT (when Crossfire masters are available) cards are not cheap and certainly not good value for money, but they are justified when performance is all that matters.

    Two 6600GT cards will perform around a similar level to a single 6800GT in some games, those that work well with SLI. What you must remember is that there are quite a few games (including new releases) which gain zero benefit from SLI in any of the rendering modes, except perhaps if you use the SLI AA modes. It's likely that anyone who bought a 6600GT a while ago would have a 128MB model, and adding another would at best give you the equivalent of a 128MB 6800Ultra as all the textures must be loaded into both cards, and in some games still just leave you with the performance of a single 128MB 6600GT. Spending money on a second mid-range card like a 6600GT instead of selling the first and putting the money towards a single higher-end card is a false economy.

    This is true but if you overclock the cards the GT will still be faster:
    O/C-GS = 500*12 = 6000Mpixels/s vs
    O/C-GT = 425*16 = 6800Mpxels/s

    Cost the GS wins
    Performance the GT wins
    It really depends on your needs.

    Now if the GS unlocks like the older chips then hell yeah your talking 6800Ultra killer:

    Default 7800GT= 400*20= 8000Mpixels/s
    O/C-GS = 500*16 = 8000Mpixels/s vs
    O/C-Ultra = 450*16 = 7200Mpxels/s

    Now that would be a great X-mas deal!!!

    if u ever think that the gs can get even close to the performance of a 7800gt, then dream on... those numbers are meaningless...

    As I said, sli is really pointless... What's the point in buing two 7800gtx??? Show me 1 game to take advantage of that??? if u have a 7800 gtx u can play all the games today at high settings and at 50+ fps... if u sli 2 of those cards, u'll get 70+fps... is it worth it??? NO!!! Is there any point??? NO!!!

    So what!? extra pipes over that much core clock anytime. And for those results; try pumping the AA up, then you'll see the GT move ahead of the GS.

    ( Dont believe all the marketing dude!) :rolleyes:
