Well, I have the Geforce 6800 Ultra and I really like it. So I would go with the Geforce 6800. Just my .02

Boy did I read that wrong or what? Oops sorry man, guess it's just whenever I see someone browsing tigerdirect, I assume it cause they're either out of the U.S. or dont know about newegg ... which usually has lower prices.

So I was off by $39 ... LOL

I think the 6600GT which is cheaper runs better than the normal 6800, but the X800 Pro is usually better than then both.
