Default 6800nu or 6600gt?

well ive narrowed it down to these. they are about the same price and both perform well. so which one do u think?
either the gigabyte/leadtek 6800 or the gigabyte 6600gt. they all have nice cooling. the 6800 has 12pp but slower clock speeds, while the 6600gt has 8pp but faster clk spds.

EDIT: if u unlock pipes can u lock them again if u ge artifacts? has anyone here unlocked any pipes? if so how many.

well the 6600gt has no licked pipes so the only things u can do is oc the spds. also the 6800 uses 256bit mem interface, while the 6600gt uses 128. u can make a 6800nu into a gt if u try.

6800nu deifnently. It can easily be OC'ed. Get a NV5 silencer for it.

Save up for the 6800 GT. It drowns both the 6600 GT and 6800 NU in the water.

yea but this is 4 my bday on june 10. i have aboot 80 now and im gonna get some more. ill have about 110+ by my bday. my parents dont want me to spend any more on my pc, but they dont understand that its like crack. so theyre only giving me less than 200. besides a 6800gt would just be bottlenecked by the rest of my sys.

xp 3000 400 fsb~pipe101
1gig corsair 400
mge vigor500
skt600=shit(mobo)
250gig maxtor 16 meg cache
40gig quantum
the rest doesnt matter 4 v/c purposes

Go with the 6600GT, much more cost efficiant than the 6800u
