Which GF 6800 card?


I'm going to dump my AGP card, so can someone please tell me which GeForce 6800 PCI-E card to get for $150? At NewEgg, I sorted by 256MB, 256-bit, $100-$200. There are 3-4 cards in tihs price range and I'm not sure which one is best... three 6800GS models and one 6800Xtreme model to choose from. One of the 6800GS models even comes with "full version" Quake4 - not bad, huh?

Mating with AMD Opty 165 and Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 Socket 939 MB.

Thanks for your input. I want to order this by the weekend!

i would get evga cause lets say in 90 days u wanted a new card u can do a step-up program with evga for a newer card.

but get a 6800gs out of all the 6800gs's.

now there are the 7600gt out that go for around 190 and ppl say there better than the 6800gs

Yea, go with either the 6800gs or the new 7600gt... the 7600gt if it fits your budget.

Cheers.

DANG, I just spotted the XFX 6800 XT 256MB for $100 (after MIR). Is that a deal? I'm not a serious gamer - Don't play Doom3, HL2, BF2, but plan on getting Ghost Recon 3 when it comes out... This should be more than adequate, right?

7600GT is over my budget. If I played any of the above mentioned games, then I would probably get, but I don't.

FWIW Is this card any good or stay away???
