PLEASE ANYBODY HELP , 6800 OR 6800XT

After long searching about graphic Card finally i found two graphic cards

1- XFX 6800XT Xtreme 512MB DDR3 PixelPipelines 8.

2- Leadtek 6800 (without XT) TDH 256MB DDR1 PixelPipelines 12.

And i don't know which one of the two are better for me, also pixel pipelines differ and DDR difer , memory size 512 differ ????
So please anybody tell me which one is better for overclocking , performance and Lifetime? Any reply will be appreciated.

thanx very much.

More about please 6800 6800xt
  1. The 6800XT is a cripple PoS, that deserves to die. A plain 6800 is a MUCH BETTER choice.

    BTW,
    WTF is up with the font?

    Go for the plain 6800, hands-down. It's a dirty trick of nVidia's to use "XT" for their low-end cards, when it's a high-end thing for ATi.

    The 6800XT may sport more RAM, and even higher RAM speeds, but it's effectively a 6800GT lopped in half; it has only 8 total pixel pipelines, and a 128-bit memory bus, unlike the standard 256-bit bus for high-end cards. (including the 6800, 6800GT, and 6800ultra) Having a 128-bit bus is like cutting the RAM speed in half. You will NOT like it more than the 6800, that's a gaurantee.
  4. Go for the plain 6800.

    There is also a good chance that you can unlock 4 more pixelpipes with a program called rivatuner.
  5. If you ask me, a 7600GT will kill any of them, it will actuall come very close to 6800 ultra, I know, it killed my 6800GT :cry:
    Unless you are getting them used for really cheep, you can get the 7600GT for about $170. :wink:
    But betwen both, I will Go with the 6800
  6. 7600GT > 6800 Ultra.

    There are only 2 to unlock on a normal 6800...

    in my old(er) pc I have a V9999GE which no 7600 can compete with and uses a standard 6800 chip.
    I got the core as high as 435MHz (stab.) without tweaking memory.
