    Heres some links to some Tomshardware bechmarks Quake 4:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/12/02/vga_charts_viii/page11.html

    F.E.A.R: http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/12/02/vga_charts_viii/page16.html
    in F.E.A.R it seems theres about 5 to 7 frames difference between two SLI 6600GT's and a single 6800GT

    3DMark:http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/12/02/vga_charts_viii/page18.html
    the 6600GT's beat the 6800GT in some of the 3DMark benchs

    As you can see mutch of the benkmarks where won by the two 6600GT's

    I'm glad they are coming out with a "last" AGP card (possibly) as well as a new PCI-E card (GS)...

    But like many have said... SLi as a technology is really pointless as this point in time as not many games gleam any real benefit from it and the fact Nvidia is now using SLi as an inter-marketing, cross-promotional tool to get people who already have top-of-the-line stuff (7800GTX) to get another one -- Which isn't necessary -- Simply because Nvidia can cater to their e-gos (pun intended) and tell them they still don't have "the best of the best" unless you have two 7800s instead of one.

    Like someone said, look past the marketing and be happy with what you've got as Nvidia has perverted SLi's original intent -- budget price/performance -- Into nothing but another high-end marketing gimmick to sell more high end stuff when the original purpose of SLi was to be the exact opposite (more or less).

    i owned a GT before and the card was simply beatiful. Now i would say the GS is better because of its Price to Performance ratio. So i vote GS

    As of the 6800GS isn't built on that same "outdated" technology. :rolleyes:

    in the future to come pipelines will be obselete therefore the GS is far better due to mem clock =D

    Do you happen to work in the R&D department of nVidia or ATI and have an insight into the future we don't, or are you just talking rubbish? :rolleyes:

    Benchmarks aside.....the 6800GS is available and still in production. It overclocks well and is much cheaper than the older 6800GT, plus the 6800GT is no longer being made.

    For those currently with the 6800GT, be happy, you have a great card. If you plan on going SLI with 6800GT's, better get the second one now while you can, otherwise eBay might become your only option.

    I also want to point out that someone earlier made a comment about "SLI only really being for high end gaming rigs", which is not entirely the be-all-and-end-all.

    SLI boards are coming down in price. Some manufacturers are bundling an SLI motherboard with a 7800GT PCI-E (nudge-nudge-wink-wink), but gaming is not the only limitation with some SLI boards.
    Leave the board in non-SLI mode, pop in two decent cards and then you can plug in four monitors. With a 6800GT or higher you can have 4 LCD's running their native Digital resolution. For someone who needs that kind of screen real estate it is much cheaper than a quadro card for quad monitor support and now a simple driver setting can switch you to SLI mode for gaming without re-boot.

    :)

    :D :D :D Hehe

    As for the GS vs GT, I think the GS is better value. I mean its almost at par with the GT but for much less. ;)

    So what if the GT isnt being made still. Its a manufacturing / consumer decision, that's has no bearing on the fact that the GT is a better overall card than the GS can ever be!!!

    Well since the GT has been out longer in will be cheaper in a few months.
    But as for now the GS is a better buy.:puke2:

    Cold, hard facts:

    1) Gt is not a better deal since it's more expensive and not being made anymore.

    2) GS OC owns the GT despite your "pipes".

    What are you still debating?

    Well I'm afraid the GT has had it's day :) The new kid on the block beats it for less dosh. And clocks like a dream.
    I just got 1 last week, and while I'm no wizard @ OCing. Mine is running @ 530/1200 just using the 'detect optimal frequency' function.

    530mhz *12 = 6360 Mpixels/s
    1200mhz * 256bits /8 = 38400Mb or 38.4Gb

    My temps have gone up by only 2C from default.
    Have tested with Quake4 and BF2. Have benched with 3dmark03 > 13311marks, but not yet with '05.
