leadtek winfast makes a single-slot watercooled 8800ultra i believe, though it carries a pretty hefty price tag where i live.

You're probably better off getting a vanilla 8800 GT or GTX and adding an aftermarket water cooler. The only downfall is that it voids your warranty, but for the money you save, it's probably worth it.

Not with eVGA. They cover third party cooler installations.

Yep that's all current ATi cards that have suck coverage of overclocking and HSF replacement that voids your warranty, not XFX and Evga.

XFX and Evga both support end user overclocking and HSF replacement without voiding your lifetime warranty.

In addition, Evga= StepUp Program, or you can trade your card in for a better version within 90days of purchase if you change your mind or a better one is released. You pay the difference. XFX = double lifetime warranty, or you may transfer your lifetime warranty to another person if you are the original buyer and decide to sell your card after you get tired of it. That's great for folks that like to sell their cards when they get bored with them or decide to use them to feed an upgrade because it builds extra value to the buyer.
