The 6800GT is probably your best bet right now. I personally bought the 6800 nu. The new version of RivaTuner is supposed to be able to unlock the last 4 pipes on the 6800 nu, but this only happens with some manufacturers. The GT obvisuly has more potential than the 6800, but the 6800 is also still an incredible card. If you wait to see which manufacturers can unlock those last 4 pipes, you can essentially get a 6800 GT for a 6800 price.
If you have an extra $100 bucks in your budget, the 6800 GT is the way to go, if you are working on a tigther budget (like me), the 6800 isn't a bad card.
In the end, its your $100 bucks, its a better card, is having a better card worth $100 bucks to you?
