Exactly, I have that BFG 6800GT and it will OC to the ultra speeds no problem. Isn't the Ultra like a $100 extra bucks? Not worth it IMO.

Yeah I just benched my GT at Ultra speeds last night since it's nice and cool at night. Took it like a champ, raised my various benchmarking scores more than I thought it would....except for Aquamark, which I'm guessing is a little bit more system based than 3dmark05 which is basically all GPU based

EDIT: If you have really good cooling on that Ultra it'll want to OC even higher because it's got that 2nd molex connector so that it can reach those higher OC's with a stable amount of voltage. But you'd need a pretty good cooler and difference in temps to achieve that. Also I know a few people at xtremesystems who flash their Ultras with GT BIOS's because GT's have faster RAM timings or so says them haha

I really dont think having a second molex would help an OC, comeon until recently GT's held the world 03 record
