In benchmarks the 6800 le may beat the 6600gt but I have yet to see one person post that got a le card that was happy with it . I think the 6800gt is a better card for most users and he can get the memory Muskin Memory
and the video card XFX Video Card
and only break his budget by $30 but he has seen both options he can decide for himself
almost true except i found a post that i created last week. and Beomagi stated this..
there's 2 flavours, 900MHz memory, and 1000MHz memory, manufacturers seem to vary with what they offer.
XFX has one of the lowest costing cards, it comes with 1000MHz memory, and has dual dvi outputs which i haven't seen other cards carry.
BFG may oc their cards, but so can you
if you're looking at $250, i'd seriously say toss in $10 more and get a 6800nu. I went for a ledtek($275) because so far, their rep for unlocking is awesome. Even without unlocked pipes, you're still faster than the 6600GT at higher resolutions.
If your also interested take a look at the post
all im saying is weight your options the 6800 is not much at all more in price and for the performance difference its worth it. Specially if your looking at longevity.
