Nice to see,
but I am waiting for 499usd as well...

DMA have you heard anything about Best Buy? They usually hype Nvidia cards. I would expect the Evga to show there...

They's been hyping the ATI cards of late (having them on the main video and sound page), but when I checked their site yesterday I didn't notice any references to the 6800 line.

I talked to one of the Abit guys at E3, and he said they will have an OTES cooling design for their X800Xt... and that they are still working on it. I believe he said next month if I'm remembering correctly

OTES...hmm serious overclockage? OTES is IIRC not that silent in operation? I dun care anyway...I use the Zalman headphones.
