    7800 GS and 6800GS are both awsome cards. What do you want to play that these cards dont allow?

    A6800GS would stomp that 512MB 6800, no problem. And a 7800GS is the king **** of the AGP world. If I ran AGP I would own one of those. Also, don't forget that the 6800GS AGP will most likely unlock to 16 pipes.

    Usualy by looking at the HSF you can tell what will proform better, at least within the same series, that card has a smaller HSF compaired to 6800GS/GT, I really doubt 512MB on a 6800 would make a big diffrence. Even with the 7800GTX 512(Ultra) the diffrence in proformance is mostly in the clock speed diffrences between the 7800GTX and GTX 512(Ultra), With current games anyway.

    Do you think they will make a 6800 GS or 7800 GS with 512mb ram?

    Highly doubtful. That much VRAM is virtually unused anyways. Besides, the memory on the 6800/7800GS cards is much faster than the 512MB memory on that 6800. I am unsure as to how fast the ram on the 512MB GTX is, but the insane core speeds could certainly overcome slower memory.

    Only a few games get much advantage from 512MB video RAM, and even though only the top-of-the-line cards can really get any actual performance advantage (and it's not much). F.E.A.R. and Doom 3 can actually see improved loading times from it, as well as fewer initial stutters from loading textures and whatnot, but performance (as I said) isn't increased much. Take the 512MB 7800 GTX and clock it down to 256MB GTX speeds and performance is almost identical.

    note it may be a 512mb video card with a geforce 6800 chipset but the memory is clocked kinda slow [540mhz GDDR2]. you might be better off witha Sapphire radeon 1600pro AGP if you really need a 512MB AGP card.

    its a few bucks chepaer than the 6800 you posted the link to as well..

    The only problem I can see is having to use a 512mb AGP appeture in RAM.
