Um... but the X800 is:
1. 2 times memory at 512MB
2. 4 more pixel pipelines

But surely, memory matters.

How can this 6800 GS be better if it has less pipelines and 1/2 the memory?

well first off its a newer core architecture, second, 48 pipes is amazing thats why. just go look at the benchmarks for yourself you will see. also memory doesnt make much of a difference.
