Well i have been seeing jrm post it to alot of people and i was wondering really if this video cars i anyone good for gamers, syste building. Also what about overclocking wise?

Ppl comment about it syaing its better than a 6800 GT 50 dollars less cant see that since it has 12 pipelines.... thats 50 dollars more for 4 more pipelines nd the 7800GT to 7800 GTX (4 more pipelines) thats 150 more... whats up with nVIDIA nd thier bad priced goods?

The 6800gs performs in games exactly the same as the 6800gt and I recommend it because its the same speeds but cheaper.

They upped the core clock on it on all of the 6800gs's even the stock gs's.

Do you understand now? A stock 6800gs has a higher clock rate than a 6800gt that is how they manage to equal out the speed. The 6800gs core clock is even higher than that of a 6800 ultras.(Stock cards)

The overclocked 6800gs have even higher core clock and memory clock.



They made it to where its the same speed as the 6800gt. All they did is redesigned the card and produced it at a lower price. It is a new card I think another reason they did it was to compete with ati. If you played on a stock 6800gs and a stock 6800 gt on the same machine you wouldnt tell the difference.


Look here this is stock speeds of all the cards. Compare and you will definately see what im talking about.

Yeah they used the seven series core technology to make it as a cheaper alternative to the GT to compete with the x800, i suppose it should have really been labeled a 7200 or 7500 if they followed the way they previously labeled cards.
