Leadtek finally made a pretty good pricedrop of $25 from $319 to $295 which means you could sli these things for under a 7800gtx. SWEET!!!! But still finally prices going down.

Hola cyber pimps,
This may be a dumb question... But when you're doing an SLI build, where do the SLI bridges come from (the little ethernet bridge that connects the 2 cards). I've looked at both mobos and Video cards and never seen one packaged with them. Do you have to order them seperately or am I missing something? Thanks!

Those Leadtek 6800 GT heat sinks are sufficient enough to flash the BIOS to the 6800 Ultra. In fact, I think I almost bought one because the bios files and flash utility are on leadtek's website. I like CSS too much so I went ATI, though

i heard well i read a review that if you want to SLi those you would have to take off the heatsinks, and yes those are so big and it is so easy to turn that 6800GT into a 6800 ultra
