This card is very fast at stock...
Strengths: Speed, overclockability, compatibility.
This card is very fast at stock speeds but almost every PNY 6800 GT will overclock to at least Ultra speeds, something that can't be said for other brands. And since PNY stayed very close to the Nvidia reference design this card is very compatible with accessories such as the NV Silencer 5.

Strengths: very fast, great image quality, even at high AA and AF settings
Weakness: absolutely none, especially on a fast proc
I have an old barton 3200+ and this thing smokes! (a faster proc will really allow this thing it shine!) I play Doom 3 at 1280x1024 on high details with 2XQ and 8X AF and get 53 FPS...very nice. The feature set is future-proof, especially when compared to the X800. This card was bought in prep for EQ II, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat!

Strengths: Definately SPEED
Weakness: Price is it, and the new seat belt to hold me in my computer chair lol
There is only one, and this card is it, my old geforce 4 card i thought was fast it has 128MB DDR RAM. The 6800 GT has 256MB DDR3 RAM. I have tryed both cards with doom3, and to get the full lighting, shading effects at 1600x1200 highest settings, i get NO slowdown with the 6800 GT. there is no compairson, this card is the best, plus the doom3 game engine will probably be use in more up coming...

There is only one, and this card is it, my old geforce 4 card i thought was fast it has 128MB DDR RAM. The 6800 GT has 256MB DDR3 RAM. I have tryed both cards with doom3, and to get the full lighting, shading effects at 1600x1200 highest settings, i get NO slowdown with the 6800 GT. there is no compairson, this card is the best, plus the doom3 game engine will probably be use in more up coming games.
I found this card today on sale at compusa for $399 and it includes a full game Doom3 for free, date is 8-15-2004 this is a great deal at this price.

This card is nearly as good as the...
Strengths: Best price/performance ratio. Best video card at around $400
Weakness: No included games.
This card is nearly as good as the ultra series but for $100 - $200 less. If your not interested in getting a good software bundle this card is a good way to save money. Although the PNY is one of the lower priced 6800 gt's, it's still as good as the other higher priced ones(Evga, Chaintech, XFX, etc).

Viper DX Pro
Strengths: Fastest card For Doom 3
Weakness: Price only but ha ha cant help that
This card rocks, i also look at the x800 xt from Ait, the 6800 GT will kill it in frame rates in Doom 3 if you dont believe me check out this website www.Anandtech.com click on the Doom 3 picture they rate a lot of different cards on doom 3. (side note) I think sents they spent years building doom 3 game engine, they will probably use the game engine to build other games with it beyond just doom...

This card rocks, i also look at the x800 xt from Ait, the 6800 GT will kill it in frame rates in Doom 3 if you dont believe me check out this website www.Anandtech.com click on the Doom 3 picture they rate a lot of different cards on doom 3. (side note) I think sents they spent years building doom 3 game engine, they will probably use the game engine to build other games with it beyond just doom 3, this will set all new standard for video cards to live up to in benchmarks. but dont get me wrong ait does make good cards and the doom 3 game can be play on a lot of the older cards maybe not at screen res of 1600 x 1200, probley at lower res screens
Today I played quake 4 and the card is still play all the
newest games with high end graphics i am still happy i purchased this card after a year later.
