    I bet your 6600GT is faster than that 6800 when you consider the same amount of memory, but your GT is DDR3, and the 6800 is only DDR.

    btw, they use similar fans, so the noise will be the same. If you want it quiet, get the NVSilencer for your card.

    I'm thinking that my fan is defective because it's super loud ALL the time. when the cpu/case fans are silent it's whizzing away.

    Is this card compatible with my the above motherboard?

    sorry to bump. I'm about to go shopping and need to finish this RMA asap so I have to finalize now.

    Is the 6800GT OC worth it for that speed compouter/400mhz ram? and is it compatible with the mb?

    if your gonna spend 400 bux on a card...get the x800 pro with VIVO, you can flash it to a x800 XT PE

    why wouldnt it be compatable...as long as you have a AGP slot and a AGP card there shouldnt be a problem...
