If I were to buy a new graphics card out of those choiced above, I would pick the 6800GT. All those cards above will do a great job in terms of high fps and performance.

yeah bud, go with the 6800gt, best video card of the ones you listed.. however it does cost a little more than double of the 6600gt.. but there's double the pipelines.. if you have a pci express board.. defintiely get the 6800 gt

Yep, the 6800GT is the best there.

They go in terms of this with Nvidia:

Vanilla (Standard) like 6800, GT, and then Ultra.

All would produce good settings, and if you have SLI, I'd get 1 6800GT if you can't afford two as yet, and then wheny you can afford it, get another one.

I wouldn't get a 6600GT if you can afford a 6800GT for example, only to want a 6800GT later on, as 2 6600GT's would probably equal (not exactly sure) 1 6800GT.

I hope this helps

Hmm, I searched on net, and after my comment above, I'm starting to doubt that 2x 6600gt's will match 1x 6800GT because of SLI not meaning 2x the performance when used with 2 cards.

So yes, 1x 6800GT would probably still beat 2x 6600GT's in SLI.

Good man

The difference is slightly different, though the performance would be alot better I'd presume:

CORE:
6800GT - 350MHZ
6800Ultra - 400MHZ

FREQUENCY OF MEMORY:
6800GT - 1000
6800Ultra - 1100MHZ

MEMORY AMOUNT:
6800GT - 256mb GDDR3
6800Ultra - 256mb GDDR3

MEMORY BUS:
6800GT - 256bit
6800Ultra - 256bit

PIXEL PIPELINES:
6800GT - 16
6800Ultra - 16

**BANDWIDTH:
6800GT - 32 GO/s -
6800Ultra - 35.2 GO/s

FILLRATE:
6800GT - 5.6 GPixels/s -
6800Ultra - 6.4 Gpixels/s

**- translating from a website... I have no idea what that could mean...

EDIT: Found out. Lovely translation by Babel Fish!

Yep. It goes like this:

Standard/Vanilla (6800), 6800GT, 6800ULTRA.

They'd be quite a performance difference between the two I'm sure, though I've read the 6800GT is very overclockable, and more so than the Ultra is, if you like doing that.
