HE HE HE!!!
Most people knew that the GT will be a very good card! Will see what ATI can do to equal or beat it! If they can't it will probably be my next GPU.

Doesn't overclock too great though, oh well, watercooling with pencil volt mod will fix that.

Looks like a fantastic card, really fast and SM3.0 support. ATi continues to show strength where AA/AF is concerned however. Oh well, hopefully companies will be straight with actual retail prices.

It looks like a few stores are actually selling it for the MSRP... <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by sweatlaserxp on 06/23/04 05:50 PM.</EM></FONT></P>

I think i just found my next card. Whats the point of the ultra version if you can overclock the gt to the same speed and get the same performance for 100$ less...?

Wait, you just posted an article at TBreak where they said the MSRP for the 6800nu was $350, and some sites MIGHT have it as low as $299. Why the HELL would a 6800GT go for the same price as a 6800nu when the 6800nu is obviously an inferior card? So either Best Buy made an error, or the card was never $299. Either way, watch the info you post. The fact that the 6800GT and the x800 pro are the same price definitely makes things difficult, b/c the 6800 is inferior to the x800 pro .

Wasnt a mistake on the 6800GT price. For about 6 hours it was listed on sale and $100 off for 299.99 plus free shipping. This happened about a week ago I guess and I was able to get in on the deal. It was a hot topic in NV news forums for a while.
The orders have been confirmed as legitimate sale by both calling bestbuy hotline and my order status showing in progress to ship out 7-1-04.
It was a pretty sweet deal:)

IT is true that the ATi cards have better performance in AA and Aniso, but not by much, they are loosing their lead because they are not introducing new technology, maybe they will do that with the R500, but for now I think Nvidia has regained their flagship they once held with the GF4. Kudos to the GT for a $350 price and performance that can match the $500 counterparts!!!

true we will have to see what they do with the r500, suppossedly they got the xbox 2 working with sm 3.0+. Also hearing roumers the xbox 2 is alittle bit different structurally then the previous generation of xbox, since this chip was made specifically for the xbox 2 unlike the geforce 3 chip which was modified.

For now nV is on top though.
