To those of you who have 6800 GT's as well, any advice you can give me? Any performance tweaks, overclocking advice, really really really neat things you can do with it? ::

Well, okay, maybe I don't need to overclock it.
But tweaking it could be fun.

If you do decide to overclock...do it in 5mhz increments until artifacts appear. Then go back 10 mhz and that will be your top clock speed.

It is ALWAYS necessary to overclock
My first 6800GT overclocked nicely, over Ultra speeds. my second is doing slightly better. Im waiting for my third which will have special cooling so I'm hoping for better results.

The Radeon 9800 are the 2nd highest generation of video card, up there with the Geforce 5900/5950 on Nvidia's side.
Current generation are Radeon x800 and Geforce 6800.
Your card is still quite powerful. I just upgraded from a Geforce 5900 Ultra myself.
