I have one of those things as a matter of fact. Very nice indeed and if im correct you can use either an Asus or Abit SLI board to SLI two because the slots are far enough. I havent flashed mine yet but i do have it OCd alot.

yeah...1 7800gtx is still cheaper than 2 of these, and in reviews the 7800gtx performed about on par w/ 2 ultras SLI'd. The link below is an older review but shows the benchmarks of the 7800gtx.

Hmmm awesome...then maybe it won't cost me as much as I had originally assumed to sell my 6800GT AGP to my friend here in town and then get the Ultra-D and PCI-E 6800GT....when I looked a couple weeks ago the eVGA was up at $345...now it's at $309 but it said a 'one day sale' for that so hell I might just have to go leadtek then.

I think it'd take my conversion cost from around $275+ to $225.....I just dread having to empty and refill the water loop...not only that the heatsinks for the 6800's are a pain in the *** to get back on because of the hundreds of screws =/ Trying to convince my friend to just by the NV Silencer so I wont have to put it on

Um seriously guys why would a company make a video card that wouldnt fit on all motherboards. Yes you can fit two leadtek 6800 gt's on an sli mobo. I never got why the 6800 ultra by leadtek was opengl 1.5 not 2.0 like the gt.
