Ok I know this has been said over and over , but I must ask this there are 3 major video cards that I am looking at right now and I need some input on them . first and formost there is the ATIx800 XT it is selling for about $400.00 bones and then there is the 6800GT O/c'ed that is going for the same , both are great cards and both sport the same price , just the differance in shaders and such. then there is the little 6600GT and it too is O/C'ed and promises to runn as good as the 6800GT . for about $200.00 bones with all of thies choises what am I to do ? the money is not the problem I just want a great video card that will last me for a long time as the 9800 pro I cuently have has done. and it has and is still doing a great job. but that all aside what should I do here ? I would if it is at all posible like to see some bench marks on all 3 of thies cards , by the user's not some web site , please if you have benchmarks and info on thies cards I would realy like to hear what you have to say about them . this is the week that I get one of them and need your help in making this happen . thank you all for you time and help...

hey trickson , Look at the 3dmark threads were always on . the 6800's and x800's are all top of the list. Its just processor memory and board making the difference. And yeah if you don't have a prob with the money then don't get the 6600.

If you've got money to burn something like one of these would be good
