I think Leadtek lags behind the pack a little bit if I remember right.

I thought I remembered reading that Leadtek was one of the better ones.

EVGA is always nice though.

Perhaps I should clarify myself, I meant Leadtek usually released their cards later then the other major manufacures.

Yea Leadtek always put huge dual slot heatsinks on theirs but I'm pretty sure Leadtek's cards came out after EVGA, XFX, BFG and other primary nvidia distributers when the cards were first were released. But it's not that big of a deal.

Also if they say they will start going for sale on March 9 (tomorrow) what time will they be available. Will they just go up for sale at like midnight or sometime during the day or what?

Thats what I am wondering.


I have the 6800 with the big ol dual slot heatsink(nothing unusual seeing as how almost every card they have is dual slot heat sink). Do you think alot will be available at launch, is it going to be first come first serve basis?
