The x800 gto is alot faster and is worth it.

The 6600 gt is only 128 mb by the way and it is only tops, 16gb/s.


The x800 gto is 256 mb and is 32gb/s which is 2X faster than the 6600 gt.

Your dumb if you go for the 6600 gt. :tazz:

its 128mb which is sufficient but it will be alot better than what you had for shure.

It probably saved you abit from the 256 mb version.

If you want to play HDR games get the 6600GT as the x800 series does not support HDR. But in raw terms of performance, yes, the X800GTO is better. The 6600GT is known to be better than the x800 vanilla in many cases, but it can't touch the X800GTO :tazz:. But, as I said earlier, it does not support HDR.

Actually the x800 DOES support HDR i know for a fact because i have one and it does, its fairly evident, ive yet to see a 6600GT that can run it without crashing into oblivion.

Ya like I said im not putting down either company nvidia or ati.

My choice is still nvidia overall. My opinion. The x800 gto vs the 6600 gt you are dumb to get the 6600 gt lol..

The x800 gto is twice as fast. When I help people pick out a card on a budget I make shure they get the fastest possible "overall" for the money which is the x800 gto... So they will be happy. I have most of these cards specs memorized in my head so its not difficult for me to pick the fastest card for the money.

Sorry, I meant shader model 3.0. The x800 series does indeed support HDR.
And I agree, the x800GTO crushes the 6600GT. If I were looking to get a 6600GT or x800 (vanilla) I would buy the 6600GT, because of shader model 3.0 and it's a newer chip. The x800's technology is now relatively old, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the top cards on the market does it?

the gto came out after the 6600gt. Its not really old technology, if it was then both cards are actually considered older technology because they have x1800 cards out now and nvidia 7800 gtx's with 512 mb.

The 6800 gs just came out and its and updated version of the 6800gt. The in game fps are actually a hair better on the newer 6800gs than the gt.

Rembmer the x800 has many different series..

No, I mean it's based on the 9800 core. Which is older technology. The 6800 was a new core. Not just an other one on steroids :tazz:.
