It has a higher transistor count than the 6800GT, more rendering and shader pipelines than the 6800GT, more frames per second, and higher clock rate. Plus the cooling is better. It's just a newer and better video card then the older 6800GT. The 6800GT is nice performance video card too, but the 7800GT is better.

Im really thinking cause the Jaton is 280 and 6800 GT's are very close to that so the price is tempting

The 7800GT is better, but also crazy expensive. Isn't it funny how the prices make a huge leap from just below top-of-the-line to "the ceiling" of current technology?

6800 is the best core Nvidia have ever made. And if its got a bad reputation for cooling, its because of stupid XFX with there rubbish, cheap and tacky fans.

I always try to steer people away from XFX. Because they cut corners, hence why there always so cheap
