Well, I have purchased a 6800GT from Leadtek and I have to say I am very impressed. First off thier all copper heatsink gives you plenty of room for OCing. Right outta the box this card did 380/560 with no artifacts. After a quick volt and BIOS mod, this card now shows up as an Ultra in the POST screen and in the device manager. Since I bumped up the volts this card is running artifact free at 430/610. Now I do have 9 case fans (4 of them Vantec Tornados) so I have some pretty good cooling. I do have more headroom and could possibly push it to 450 core (now that its winter...hehehe), but after the volt and BIOS mod, its nice to have a card that I paid GT prices for show as an Ultra to everything. I even lied to my firends and told them I got an Ultra. That, and I am getting 30mhz core and 60mhz memory more than a stock Ultra. Even a stock BFG OC isnt that high, but this card only cost me 380 on outpost.com (although only 3 days after I bought it, the price went to 450! whew!! talk about good timing!)

Ya, I HATE that. You know the manufacturer didn't raise prices so it's the retail stores jacking up the prices at christmas season to make a few extra bucks.

P.S. Sorry for the off topic post
