Default What card to get.

Hi, just found this site and it seems like anything and more can be found out here, quite the site. I just have a question regarding getting a new video card. I just ordered basically a new system minus a video card, HD, and CD/DVD drives. I bought an Asus P5AD2 Premium w/ Pci-E, Intel 3.4ghz 550HT 1mb 800fsb, 1gig (512x2) Kingston DDR2 533mhz, Asus Star Ice Blue cooling system, Cooler Master Praetorian Case, 460W Seasonic PS. What i cant figure out is what video card to get, I prefer to get a 6800GT 256mb with DDR3, and Pci-E, but i cant find one made by MSI or Asus. Does Evga make one? AMD seems to think highly of them lol. Doesnt have to be an Ultra edition either.

There is an MSI 6800 NU model. The 6800 PCIex are going to be very hard to find. And more expensive.

If you want to save a few bucks, I recommend going with a X800 series PCIex they will be easier to find and cheaper.

Most other 6800 cards are out of stock.

yeah that is what he means, I doubt it outperforms the X700 unless it is a low res Doom 3 test.

Most of the reviews take into account the cheapness of the 6200 compared to the X700 series; and by that reasoning its better
