Hey dudes. I originally had this card sold to ragejg many moons ago. We lost contact and I decided to keep it. I moved to a shuttle and this bastard doesn't fit in one. My replacement card, a 9800np bit the dust after I ripped an entire ram chip off of it, Not good with epoxy and ram sinks :( Anyway, I yet again, have to sell this 5800ultra. I'm running it right now in my shuttle with the Backplate off and the cover off my shuttle. Needless to say, this isn't a smart way to run a card. I'm asking $220 shipped for it. It overclocks to retardedly high speeds, I'm talking 560+ core 1.2ghz on ram. I attached a 60mm low profile fan to the back of the card for better temps and such. No more text, here's some pics:

I just got a PNY 5800 Pro. So far I've noticed:
It's a little slower at UT2004. 10X7 4X8X 60s-70s instead of 70s-80s I got with 9800 Pro.
Not as noisey as I expected.
Noticeably worse at Far Cry, oh well, didn't buy it for DX9 games. :afro:

The Far Cry **** is a huge bug with all of the FX series. Nothing can run the game remotely decent. Hopefully our german friends will fix that.

Rage, the 9700 isn't really what I'm looking for.

This card roxorz boxorz and is well worth $220.. I would have bought it for that in a heartbeat before I got mine.

Let the big dog out, buy him from Waltar and let him come down out of the tall weeds to your box.

Rage I am amazed you are not all over this.

BTW Waltar, how did you mount that fan on back?

well, Walter did at one point want cash (this was like 3 months ago), then he was lookin to trade, maybe for a 9700/9800... this time it appears that he wants cash, as he's not interested in my 9700 which I'd like to maybe trade for a 5800...

So, $220? Is that how much he's asking?

Rage, if you're running your 9700 at Pro speeds you won't be able to tell the difference in performance, but the 5800 U is a lot cooler card than a 9700NP.
nVidia's "Harley Davidson of video cards" pretty much hits it on the head.

A buddy of mine also has a 5800U. It's a low profile 60mm fan screwed directly onto the backplate. The temps seriously dropped 5C. Helped me oc the ram alot higher..

I had a large cpu fan to spare, so I mounted that on it with 2 screws.

I honestly can't believe this is still here.

I have been loving the performance of this card at UT2004. I won many rounds tonite, IMO largely due to the card's ability to track opponents and dust them with accurately placed rocket splash.

Rage you should ditch that 9700 and join me in the ranks of 5800U owners.

The few, the proud.... :clap:

well, I don't feel like ditchin my 5900XT, and walter doesn't want my 9700... I had cash forit once, but there were communications guff ups that botched the deal months ago...

I'd do just about anything for this card, but unfortunately I haven't the cash right now for it...

I should be happy right now that I have a 200fsb capable nf2 (and one on the way that's happy @ 225), that I have 2 2500's, that I have a gig of ram in one of my machines, that I have a tv tuner card, that I have 2 256 bit memory equipped video cards... so on and so forth... maybe this is a cult classic of a vidcard that god just doesn't want me to try out :rolleyes: :p

whaddyou mean? did god like tell you something about this? :p

I woke up last night, for no reason, walked down to my basement in the dark. The basement was lit up by my stomped 5800, floating in the middle of my rec room, burning but not being consumed.
A voice that sounded like James Earl Jones boomed out,"Rollo! Rage has strayed from the path, the way of righteousness! The 5900XT and 9700NU are generic, heathen cards, beloved of the non-believer! Help Rage remember he has a credit card to offset the difference in sale price between his blasphemous 9700NU and the blessed 5800U! Testify as to it's might! Bring Rage back into the LIGHT!"

With that, the fire went out, the stomped 5800 fell to carpet of my rec room, but was cool to the touch.

I yelled at the suspended ceiling,"I will tell him! Do not smite me again with DOA cards!"

There you have it.

I can't believe no one wants this, for the history alone.

When you throw in the fact that this card roxorz games, and will roxor Doom3 even more, I don't think his price is out of line.

I'd rather have this card than a 5900NU/XT/SE.
