Default Where the **** is the BFG 6800GT OC?

I've been looking for this card all over http://www.bfgtech.com/6800GTOC.html

Seems as though no one sells them anymore? Anyone seen any around?

don't waste your money, if you do find it, it will probably be overpriced anyway. just wait for one of these to get in stock

I'm looking to get another. A friend of mine got one just recently from newegg.com for a **** good price but they're discontinued right now. They've got to be out there somewhere... thanks for the recommendation though.

Do you have PCI-E cause thats the only reason i could see you needing another. If not then i suggest going w/ the 7800GS.

It's AGP. The old one fried and I overclocked it at one point so I voided the warranty it had. I just want the same card, nothing else :-). I can't afford a 7 series.

If you can't find the GT see if you can grab a GS,Just about every BFG 6800GS i've seen can unlock to 16/6 plus it should be a little cheaper,I unlocked my GS without a problem and have it running @ 400/1160.

AGP 6800GTs are practically non-existent now. And 6800GSes are just as hard to find. Infact, I think there's only one brand of PCI-E 6800GS avaliable on Newegg now. Not that it matters, the 7600GS/GST/GT is/are the PCI-E King(s) in that area now.
