Out of my personal experience last week - yes.

(Was fine for 10 months though and was never overclocked - but I think I had a pre overclocked 6800.)

Only 10% of them may fail, but thats a bigger percentage than anyone else, excluding Leadtek.

I thought Leadtek was a good brand? And what about PNY? They seem to be the only manufacturer selling AGP 6800GTs anymore.
