    Hey everyone, ok my question is simple/complicated if u can believe that... i am looking into a new video card for my PC. Either the..
    1) BFG nVIDIA GeForce 6800 OC with farcry

    http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=14-143-020&depa=1

    OR

    2) nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card with out farcry

    http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?description=14-150-080&DEPA=1

    The reason i mention farcry is becuase i am getting the game either through the video card or through purchasing it separatly.

    what is my better buy and overall the better card of the 2. Please respond ASAP.

    Thanks everyone

    Just read an article. 6800 outperforms 6600GT all the way around. So yes, your decision should be pretty simple.

    Regular 6800 OC is a great Card. I have this and am really happy with it. :)

    You cant go wrong with it

    6600GT is good but but 6800 is better :)

    Since when is a 6800NU 12p,5vp with 128Mb DDR-1 memory better than 6800GT 16p,6vp with 256Mb DDR-3 Memory? :confused:

    He's comparing it to a 6600GT, not a 6800GT.

    just dont get an LE!!!

    if the card comes with farcry, then go for it...

    BUT it will be an OEM version of the game. so no box or book or fancy crap. just a CD. but who needs that **** anyway IMO.

    get a 6800, 6600GT is only 8 pipelines while 6800 is 12 meaning more performance
