Hi,
I am having a dilema.
I have the choice between getting a x800GT and and x800GTO both pci-e.

x800GT - AUD$259

pros-
R480 core
Better overclockability

cons-
Has only 8 pixel pipelines
----------------------------------------------

x800GTO - AUD$274

pros-
Has 12 pixel pipelines

cons-
Only R423 core
----------------------------------------------

So which one should I get. What difference will I see with 4 less pipelines but with the R480 core? I may overclock a bit, but not straight to begin with.

Thanks

Just curious, do you have the option for the 16pipes x850pro or is that more expensive, I dont know prices where you are.

//EDIT I Think the GTO would be better.

I'll keep it short and simple...

go for the x800GTO it is well worth the small difference

x800GT is on par with the vanilla 6800 while the x800GTO is on par with the x800pro which we all know is quite a bit better than a vanilla 6800 in all games.

Yah out of my range. But Is the GTO still better if I can overclock the GT to 504/551?

The X800GTO would WHIP the X800GT, even in stock form. Overclocked the X800GTO would really whip the X800GT. X800GTO = 12 pipes.....X800GT = 8 pipes.
