yeah well now im not so sure about the 6800 GT. I just read a review of the ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition and in cnet's benchmarks it was beating the 6800 Ultra.

Here's the review:

The Card:

I'm not sure if there would be a big difference between ATI's card and Sapphire's card, if there isnt this card is looking a lot better then the 6800 GT. This seems like too good of a deal though because everywhere else I see it it's like $400

[Shrug].... go for it. If you don't like it, you could always resell it for more.

No, its not.

6800gt is better. eVGA and Bfg Tech Are the Two Best Companies, Winfast also has some good cooling. Your best bet with the psu is skyhawk/eagle with dual 12v. @ 520w, thats your best bet.

like someone else said it scores just as high as a 6800 ultra. But I found it for like a $150 cheaper then a ultra

EDIT: Besides I already said I didn't want to get a BFG 6800 GT. I dont want to spend like $100 more on that card when it is just as good or worse then the x800 xt pe. And I dont get how you think a x800 xt pe for $280 isnt a good deal. Every where else they are close to $400
