Yea, but I'm pretty sure its been replaced by the 6800GS. I mean, just look at these;

eVGA GeForce 6800GS CO SE for $169 and $155 after mail-in rebate! I mean, this isn't even the regular 6800GS, its the 6800GS CO SE (450MHz Core Speed instead of 425), and its the same price as the cheapest regular 6800GS.

As if thats not enough, there is a;

SLI-ready version of the 6800GS that has 490MHz Core Speed by default! For $184, and $174 after mail-in rebate! Thats 6800Ultra-like performance for less than $175!

If I had a credit card and could order stuff, I'd jump on this, even though I have a 6600GT.

Hey man, I just did. The 6800GS has taken the price/performance slot. These cards show strong performance, and nVidia is making sure they're in a very appealing price slot.
