Here is a good guide on unlocking the pipes:

You might not need to worry about a new HS, would try it stock first. All you need to OC is Rivatuner or Coolbits. Very easy.

LOL. GeForce is not a brand. I would say Leadtek but they dont make a 6800 so get the eVGA.

Wasnt the 6800LE a rebadged old card of some sort? I forget exactly.. I have a BFG OC 6800 and love it! I can play every game out there so far with high settings. I wish to unlock this as well though..but then I like the fact that teh BFG has a lifetime warranty so I may leave it alone..lol.

The LE is the Lame Edition. Don't get it. You might want to look at the 6600GT, it has similar performance to the 6800, but the 6600GT is much more popular.

Nope. The 6600GT is inferior to the 6800 in most games. The 6800's performance is almost right smack in the middle of the 6800GT and the 6600GT. Also, the 6800NU can also be unlocked I think.
