I was thinking of upgrading my sapphire 9800pro 128 video card to a Nvidia card. I have had many problems with my 9800, currently its being sent back due to hardware issues. Sadly im stuck with a nvidia 5200fx till I get it back

Im interested in the 6800GT but I don't know which manufactors are the best at creating Nvidia's 6800GT. Can anyone offer some guiadance in this department.

Is there even a point to switch from a 9800pro 128 to the 6800GT will I get significant gains?
Cheers

I like eGVA items.

I have had very good luck with them, and the stand behind their items well, even have a 90 upgrade policy.

The guy who I buy computer parts say that the ones that are cheapest for him are: Asus, Leadtek, and MSI. Are these any good? Which is the best maker of the 6800GT or Nvidia cards in general?

Cheers

I second Bearcat's recommendation for BFG. Not only do they come overclocked a little out of the box, but when they say lifetime warranty, they mean it. I know a few people who have been sent top of the line cards by BFG when their once top of the line card died.

You should be able to glean alot of info on nvidia cards that o/c well.

am happy with my leadtek card, though almost bought a BFG card.

You do know that the 7800 cards are for sale this week!
will be intersting to see how far the 6800 cards drop in price.

I like MSI. They OC really well.

The 6800gt is more expensive than i had hoped. Even with the release of the new nvidias the card will still cost me close to $500Cdn!

Is the 6600GT a good card? would it be a dumb move from my 9800pro 128 to the 6600gt instead??

I think that would be a dumb move. Just wait 2 weeks and see what falls out of the tree.
