    Heh. We have been talking about same question in other thread. If im not mistaken, we got to an answer, that 6800 is a better buy. High clock potencial, 256bit though only DDR1.

    I would take 6800.

    Anyone know where one (BFG 6800 OC) is in stock for a decent price? Outpost.com and Newegg are currently on back order. Outpost has the 6800 OC for 249.99, but they don't expect a shipment till one to three weeks :(.

    Yep I think cusa opens at 6am. A friend and I plan on camping overnite, as he is deadset on getting one. He had this same question 6600GT or 6800 NU, but with a sale like this, the 6800 is the way to go.

    Yout can't unlock pipes in a 6600, it is a different chip, it has 8 piplelines, and 3 vertex shaders. A 6800 has 12 pipelines and 5 vertex shaders. Some cards can be unlock to 16 pipelines, most can be unlocked 6 shaders. At higher res with AA and AF on, the 6800 is better.

    I have eVGA Geforce 6800 NU and i can run my Far Cry at 1600x1200 with High Details, Doom 3 1280x1024 x Ultra Settings without any frame rate drop, I always keep 4x AA ON in all games from Drive settings.
    Id say go for Geforce 6800 NU since they got lot of potential for OC and price is sweet.
