Man, that model name looks like something Gainward would think up! [H]ardOCP is out with yet another review today, only this time featuring the 6800GT GPU from NVIDIA.
Honestly, you have to put in context what we are testing here. The MSI NX6800GT is based on the GeForce 6800 GT GPU, which is only second to the fastest GPU available from NVIDIA at this time. It really isn't that much slower than a 6800 Ultra considering the only difference is that it is clocked at a lower speed. The MSRP of the GeForce 6800 GT is $399, but you can typically find it for cheaper than that online. The ATI RADEON X850 XT-based video card we threw in here for comparison has an MSRP of $499, so it is $100 more expensive. Think about that as you look at the performance results between the cards. You will find that the MSI NX6800GT keeps up quite well with a card that is $100 more expensive.
