well the ATI radeon X800pro is the best of the bunch. Unless you plan on getting a better brand than PNY for the 6800 GT

They are among the worst. I dont like them. I recommend the MSI foremost. Next BFG, Gigabyte and others.

Stay away from Evga XFX and PNY.

yeah i got mine for 340 on ebay.


Thats a very good price and I would go with it.

You can get a refurbishe MSI 6800 GT on NewEgg right now.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...pe=Refurbished

its $363 shipped but doesnt include acessories.

Its the nicest of the 6800 GT's and would be fastest.
