Default Returned the BFG...ordered an eVGA...

It was clear that my 6800GT was fried and would never game again. So being as it was under 30 days, i returned it to best buy...then attempted to order an eVGA 6800GT AGP. It looks like there isn't many out there anymore, mostly because you can't SLI them. The only place I found that still carried an eVGA 6800GT is a place called ICHIBANPC.COM, which Im a little nervous about because I dont know them. But I went ahead and ordered anyway. Anybody have any experience with this site?

I would do that, but I still have AGP and I would have to build from the ground up in order to get a system thats compatable with a 7800GTX (or two).

I am going to wait on PCI-Ex and SLI until probably the GeForce 8 series or even 9 series....and then I will build an M2 system with the top end cards of the time in SLI.

Just stick with ICHIBAN, they look legitimate.

..Make sure they are based in North America, so you can sue them lol

EDIT: Just found this http://www.us.ncix.com/products/inde...nufacture=eVGA
I know its not a GT, its a cut under though

Also found this, http://www.us.ncix.com/products/inde...acture=Leadtek
