  • 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 900 MHz
  • 2 x DVI (1 Single Link, 1 Dual Link) 1 x HDMI 1 x DisplayPort
  • 1120 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 2.1 x16


-A Bang for your buck in terms of performance. (Great for first build)
-Takes 2 6pin PCI-E power connectors


-Heatsink needs some work, stock load temps 70-80 degrees, but.
-Thus, almost no overclocking headroom.

Other Thoughts:

The 6800's have always been a great value, even despite the fact that they have been in the market for the greater portion of 2 years. Since this card, I have worked with both 7900's and many Gtx 670's and 680's. I'm not going to lie, this card will never reach the heights of the 500 dollar 28nm cards. But for 150 bucks, you cannot go wrong.
