Well...

Looks like monarchcomputer had some BFG's come in. I pre-ordered this on Thursday night with no inclination that it would ship until late June. I gave up trying to hunt it down an EVGA 6800 Ultra on newegg and just said well, BFG > EVGA so might as well pre-order and wait it out on Monarch. Well, last night I just recieved my tracking number for the BFG. So I guess my new 6800 Ultra should be here Tuesday if Fedex delievers early (like they usually do @ my house). Will keep all updated, :).

oh i definitly will... too bad I dont have many games to bench with, LOL. Only games I currently have to test with would be TombRaider, UT2k4, SW:KOTOR, and Raven Shield. I need to find FarCry for cheep.

my new system specs consist of

AMD64 3400+
MSi K8N Neo (Nforce 250GB)
1 GB of Mushkin Special 222 running @ 2-2-2-5
WD 74GB Raptor
Antec 550
Audigy 2 ZS Platinum
LiteOn CD/DVD Combo

she is definitly going to screem on this setup.

God damn that 6800 Ultra OC is a beefy card. Makes my manhood feel jealous.

I was thinking of pre-ordering there too. 580 is pretty steep, but that's a discount price compared to newegg. Do they charge for shipping?

I wonder if the Ultra O/C with waterblock is under full lifetime warranty. Knowing BFG, probably so lol.

This card will feature a water block instead of a GPU fan for those wanting to purchase or who may already have an existing liquid-cooled PC system. Easily hooked up to any existing 1/4” tubing system or to 3/8” tubes with the included adapters, this card runs cool and silent. BFG Tech is proud to offer their true lifetime warranty on this graphics card. (Card with water block requires internal or external water cooled system, sold separately.)

So yup lifetime warranty

Tell me about it ;) The woes of not having enough money for a new high end gfx card purchase. :(

sorry about the late reply, I ended up purchasing a new computer desk yesterday. it took longer than expected to build.

but yes. they have a slew of shipping options. I ended up choosing the fedex express saver (the same shipping newegg uses) The express saver was about 10 bucks and ships in three days. But from the tracking stats so far I may have my package tomorrow instead of tuesday (wendesday is the schedualed delivery date), I guess we shall see. I am now trying to score a digital camara so i can take picuters of the card when it gets here.

Well, I guess I'm just an idiot that can't wait any longer. I too just ordered the BFG 6800 U OC for the huge price tag of $590!! :screwy: Why...hell if I know, I just got sick of waiting. My plan is to cancel the order though if it doesn't ship in a week or two because by that time the market should have many more cards available, maybe. I hope I have the same kind of luck though as the guy who started this thread because then I should have the card by Fri. or early the next week. I hope I don't regret this... :kill:

mwahahaha... mine is already in my town. It showed up today. The question though should I wait for them to deliever tomorrow or bust out my james bond skills and break in and grab my card, LOL.

Break in and grab it! I would be down there with ID in hand and grab that thing.

Hereticiv

I say break in also and then start posting some numbers for that thing. God I'm buggin out here, all you bastards made me so jealous! BFG is a great company and with the lifetime warranty and OCing I bet it will be well worth the price. Have fun and if we never see you again, we know why...

I've had FedEx tell me that they have to make a delivery attempt before you can go in to pick it up. Then at other times FedEx had no problem with a pickup before delivery.

What a bunch of crap that is. If it is in town and you paid for shipping they should let you pick it up where ever you want to pick it up. Oh well, tomorrow isn't that far away though it would be nice, I'm sure, to fire that thing up tonight. Anyway, just for everyone else who is waiting for their 6800 Ultra OC from monarch, I decided to email them to see if they had any idea when the next shipment would be coming in and also if they had any idea about the number they expect compared to the number of preorders they already have, I hopefully will hear back from them tomorrw and then I'll make sure I post the message.

heh...

i will end up on the streets by the end of the month. i just ended up purchasing a canon a80 so that I can take wonderful pictures when my BFG 6800 Ultra arrives, :). I am excited for tomorrow.

thanks for all the kind words guys... stay tuned... pics will be here hopefully tomorrow (that is if fedex delivers)
