Good enough.  I'm looking forward to seeing some "real" 6800 numbers.

Just small update, I just needed to say I ordered vid card from EVGA and only paid for 2nd day air but they upgraded me to next day air aint that a trip.  So might get tomorrow but I will get it thrus for sure which would be better for me since I off thrus.  I will get some games installed and check FPS with 5900SE then install 6800 GT so I have something to compare to.  Well hope to have a update here by thrus cya all then.

Well got my card at 10:30 today ran both bench 2001 and 2003 I would have shown FPS for farcry but LOL could figure out how to show it anymore. So benchies will have to be enough.  This is with no overclock on anything I will do that once card is broken in.

2003 with 5900SE 4995
2003 with 6800GT 10012

2001 with 5900SE 13253
2001 with 6800GT 15503

6800 GT
AquaMark Score: 46207 (CPU: 6226, GFX: 7383)

5900 SE
AquaMark Score: 35542 (CPU: 6228, GFX: 4989)

You'll have to install DirectX 9.0c and show off some screenshots of the Pixelshader 3.0 shots with FarCry's latest patch.

looks good for numbers, and do you think the upgrade was worth it?  Sometimes I question my upgrade, but I just want to see how you feel about it.

What did you upgrade from?  Was it the 5900SE listed in your sig?  If it was I'd say there'd be a huge performance difference for sure.

As long as they are not bigger than 1024x768, when you post a message, click the "additional options" link under the main text box.  You can attach the pictures to the message but browsing for them on your computer.  They also must be less than 256KB in size.  If they are not, you should compress them with a JPEG optimizer.  Just try and attach them though.
