    6600 gt, 6800, shuttle sn45g?

    Looking to possible upgrade my gfx. I currently have a Shuttle SN45G with a Radeon 9500 AIW which is softmodded to a 9700 AIW, and pretty decent it is really. Don't use the AIW features any more, so not needed on a new card.

    It look slike either the 6600GT or a vanilla 6800 is probably what I woudl go for, as I need an AGP card, and want to spend less than £150. I've heard that the 6600GT's are pretty good little performers, but still have 8 pixel piplelines as my current card does. But the plain 6800's have 12 piplelines. I know that the 6800GT's have 16 are are a great card, but finances won't stretch that far.

    Anybody know if these cards fit in a Shuttle? And what do you think, 6600GT, or 6800?

    Cheers.

    Looks like I'll prob get a plain 6800 then. I figured that it was bound to be better than the 6600GT, but looking at the clock frequencies, got a bit confused!

    If you can stretch Dabs are doing an X800XT for £190 which is an absolute steal.

    Or save up a little and get a 6800gt. Make sure you have the 250w silentx psu in though.
    Not around too often!

    Unless the GT's come down to the £150 mark anytime soon, I'm not sure that I'll be able to afford it.

    I do have the silent X PSU, had probs witht he 200W PSU when got my current card.
