Interesting...there are users who DO have them and they are retail boards, so your comment is somewhat incorrect....

Never expect Nvidia and ATI launched products to shipping retail boards soon in the UK after the launch, it will turn up 2 months later after the launch.

Same thing it did with Geforce 4 Ti 4600 launched in Feb 2002 and retail boards on sales in UK in April 2002. Geforce FX 5900 Ultra launched on May 2003 and retail boards on sales in UK on July 2003.

I have many trade accounts, as I build systems for a living.
I'm told by one of my traders, that the X800 Pro's should be available by the end of June, for around £299 tops.
And the same goes for the 6800GT, which should go for around £290 tops. I know, as I got mine of pre-order for £259 trade + delivery. Almost same price I paid for my Ti4600, when it first came out. Pretty shocking what you can now get for less than £300, from both ATI and NVidia.

I am surprised here are no ASUS videocards at www.komplett.co.uk as I am wonder why Komplett stopped sell videocards made by ASUS? ASUS is a great brand!
