I think the X850 would beat the 6800 Ultra, but the X850 takes up two PCIe slots needlessly. The small performance increase is not sufficient to justify the wasting of a PCIe slot. I would still get an X800 as it only uses one, and you save £80.

The GeForce 6800 GT is better, but it is in extreme short supply.

The X850XT is ATi's answer to the 6800 Ultra/Ultra Extreme.

Foir this current round of cards, I feel that nVIDIA wins the crown back, and would go with a 6800GT: it's the exact sae core are the 6800 Ultra, and will often easily overclock to super-Ultra speeds with the stock cooling solution.

I agree, the nVidia cards are what the games are gonna be optimized to run on, so the peformance difference will likely not matter. The 6800GT is a great card, not enough to make me prefer it over the 6600GT though. Maybe next month...

[color=black]I got a PCI-E BFG 6800GT OC that I can easily OC to Ultra speeds 400/1100. All the specs on the GT are the same as on the Ultra so it's a waste of money buying the Ultra card. The same goes for ATI never buy the highest end video cards. Just buy the next to highest and OC to the same speed. You will save an average of $100+ this way.:eek: [/color]

I would go with the 6800 Ultra myself, mainly because I trust the stability of nVidia's driver software more.

Hmmm, i never buy nVidia, but probably would this round pitted against the X850. It uses up an extra PCI-E slot needlessly, and really isnt that much better than the X800, for an extra $130. So, id buy neither and keep with my RX800XT :D

That will remain a high-end board for quite awhile.

All the X850 is is an overclocked x800 with a better cooling system.
