New Graphic Card -BFG 6800 OC or XFX 6600GT ?

All,

Just found what I think might be a bargain - I have seen a BFG 6800 OC for sale @ £186.88 http://www.bfgtech.com/6800.html - I was going to purchase a cheaper XFX 6600 GT @ £146.82 but for the difference of £40 this seems too good to be true.

Having never used BFG before just wondered if there were any owners out there and what they thought of thier products?

Thanks

I wouldn't bother it only has 128MB memory. Card makers always do this now. They release a truly high spec card such as the 6800 GT or 6800 Ultra and then release a cut down version of it and give it the same badge ie 6800, but it's the GT and Ultra bits that are important. They both have 256Mb memory and 16 pipelines not 12 like the standard 6800. Go to tomshardware.com and look at the benchmarks.

Personally if I was gunna get a 6800 it would only be the GT.

The 6800 GT often trounces that card especially in opengl which ATI has never been able to run properly. Although the X800 Pro comes back in some applications it's never enough to make it the faster card overall. Depends how cheap they get though I suppose. If they are a lot cheaper than the 6800 GT's then it's worth a thought.

The new 512MB cards from ATI and Nvidia are blowing all these cards away though but they are gunna be very pricey.

I've been very pro Nvidia for the past few years, but sold my 6800GT for an x800xt pci-express, been happier with that, it seems faster, but that could be cose of my newly bought Athlon64 3500+ @ 2.6ghz(240x11)
I did have a P4 3.2c @ 3.89 which didn't seem as fast as the 64.
