I went with the BFG 6800GT. It has a good rep, and it comes OC a little.

Compare the specs and features. There's no difference that I know of in the core, its the same nVidia chip.

I also picked up a BFG 6800 GT last week, loving it. One thing to note is the cooler seems quieter than the reference cooler used on most other 6800's.

A third vote for the BFG 6800 GT OC from me. I upgraded from a 9800XT, and it let me bump from Excellent to Perfect while keeping the same settings and framerates. More info than you ever wanted to know here:


If sticking to your original two choices, it may come down to the software each is bundled with. The cards themselves should be basically the same, so pick the one with the better bundle.

Concur on the BFG 6800GT OC...just swapped my 9800XT for this baby. 3DMark03 benchmarks went from 6100 to 7400.

Out of those two... XFX, any day of the week.

You should do better than that. I also came from a 9800XT, and went from 6700 to 11800 in 03.

Read the following at Tweakers.net:

"Misschien is het wel handig om te weten voor de mensen die een BFG kaart na het lezen wel interessant vinden en zo'n ding ook daadwerkelijk willen kopen dat deze jongens en meisjes geen importeur in de EU hebben en dus hun hardware uitsluitend in de US te koop is. (tenzij je een Alienware Area 51 of Aurora rig via Alienware UK besteld want daar zit zeer waarschijnlijk ook een BFG'tje in)."

I have the XFX and I could easily OC it to Ultra settings. Great Card. Love it!

The XFX is good or so I have been told by my mate and he said it came with good games like doom3 I think he said not my cup of tea tho if it come with PF I Would buy two.

I just bought a PNY GeForce 6800GT today.
I was also looking at the 6800OC
The 6800OC is 128MB DDR memory running at 700MHz, I think

Meanwhile, the 6800GT is 256MB DDR3 memory running at 1GHz.

Careful of the ASUS 6800GT 9999 gamers edition its listed as 256 but is only 128MB and only has 12 pipelines as opposed to 16
(Can't find my latest edition of Maximum PC.... that's where I found about the ASUS card)

I haven't heard of an 6800 OC. Is that something new?

10-24-2004, 11:52 PM
Are any of you guys who upgraded from your 9800XTs looking to sell them?
