    The geforce 6800GT is now again back as an upgrade option for the Powermacs.

    Weird thing is that it costs as much as the Radeon X850XT. Both are $400 to upgade, but the X850XT is a $500 card, while the 6800GT is a $300 card. So somebody is sleeping at apple.

    Yeah, the x850 was $350 but it jumped to $400 in a few days.

    why do they keep switching their video card line up? now there is not an option for the 6800 ultra.

    the 6800GT is a 500 buck card (in apple priceing not pc priceing) as is the x800XT the x850XT is not a retail card but according to how stuff is priced i'd classify it in the $600 bracket, if i were buying a G5 i'd go with the x850 unless i were a rich basterd in which case i'd get a 9650 and buy a 6800 ultra seperately.
