Default Re: which graphics card?( im new to this)

I would of picked the 6800 GS mostly because I prefer NVidia, however, the X800 Pro performed a little better in most tests, and in Doom 3 on max quality, it performed considerably better.

^^^ there's your answer. When you feel confident enough you can unlock the sucker to 16 pipes and X800 XT speeds. Future proof.

The X800 pro pisses all over the 6600 GT. Don't know where that guy's getting his info from. It competes with the 6800 GT and Ultra (and beats it) at higher resolutions and AA and AF in certain games.

The 6800 GS if you don't want to do anything with the card.

You can always use those programs that are mentioned in the sticky threads that basically do the overclocking for you.

There's pros and cons for both of them. I'd get the GS purely because of the shader model 3.0 support.
