if you had replied something else then "yeh?" I might have understood that you needed confirmation on that

yes it IS true, difference between GT <> Ultra is not very big, not noticable in games unless you run 1600x1200 4x FSAA 8x AS

in counter-strike source anti aliasing is 8x (max) & antiscop 16x (max.) don't know of the others, should test HLČ SP.. have nothing other than HLČ atm.

(I run in both desktop & games 1280 by 1024) worth oc'n it ATM to an ultra or could I just wait longer without seeing any difference?

Who can disagree.

Overclock now or later doesn't mean any difference if the outer limit is what you are getting after. Like we all need 3GHz AMD S939 to making a living or couldn't do our job without.

So, I'd say go for it and let us know how far you get.

if you have a vanilla 6800, and you get it up to GT/Ultra speeds, then I agree with you Lazyman;

but in case of the 6800GT, increases might not be seen today; but a year from now it will be; it does matter. let me explain.

if you run Doom3 now at 1280x1024 you will get 70+ on either GT or Ultra. overclocking your GT to Ultra or higher speeds will not be noticable in-game because whether you have 70fps or 77fps your eyes and mind wont register this.

however 1 year from now Raven releases a game based on the Doom3 engine and added tons of complex level design and cool special effects, your frame rate drops to 30fps with the GT, the Ultra gets 35fps; if you now overclock that GT to Ultra speeds, you WILL notice that 5fps in-game.

yeh I know that framerate story, you can't see the difference above 60 FPS.

though, is the difference between a GT and an ultra only frames?
