How much better is a 6800 card vs a 6800 GT

There seems to be a huge price gap in there but is there that big of a difference in what your actually getting.

6800 - 325\700, 12 pixel pipelines, 5 vertex shaders
6800GT - 350\1000, 16 pixel pipelines, 6 vertex shaders

There is some difference but its most noticable at high resolution and\or when AA\AF is enabled. If you get a good 6800 (say, Chaintech) you can try using Rivatuner to enable the locked pipelines and then overclock to get near 6800GT performance for much less, but its not guaranteed.

I was thinking more along the lines of eVGA. I don't know if Chaintech even makes a 6800 PCI-E card. I know they do make a 6600GT, but that's a different story. What are the best names?
