Default nvidia geforce 6800

they are all just different models. different speeds and stuff. nothing to big though. and they also use different interface slots. for example some might use pci-e and some use agp.

Hmm well, nVidia stopped producing 6800 Ultras and GT's. Instead, they make GS's. The 6800GS has only 12 pipelines I believe, but its clock speeds are much faster. It is much cheaper than both the 6800GT or the 6800 Ultra, and its performance is incredible for the price: it's almost as good as the 6800GT.

the gt is probably the best out of those but ive seen some benchmarks for the GS and its very impressive for only 12 pipelines it gets over 5000 on 3dmark05 from what ive seen, it basically goes in this order from worst to best 6800, XT, GS, GT

Default Re: nvidia geforce 6800

so is it worth paying that extra 60 bucks for a GT?

No, it's not. The 6800GS is as good as the 6800GT. The only difference is in SLI; the 6800GT SLI is much better than the 6800GS SLI, at least as far as previous benchmarks are concerned.
