All gone. I could have kicked myself when I saw this yesterday :) I spend two days at Nvidia developer conference in London and when I get back I miss my chance to finally get a 6800 that works (see borked Leadtek story thread...)

But, I have found somewhere else with the PNY GT in stock in the UK :)

I started by checking the usual sites (insight, dabs, scan, ccl, misco, komplet etc etc) and had no luck. Then I thought "Where in the World" could I find a GT....

Is that a big enough clue ? A bit pricey thought (272+vat eek) but I WANT ONE NOW!

I'm still waiting on my ultra from ccl, they told me on Monday that they're expecting them in next Monday but who knows? :)
Finding it harder and harder to resist the temptations of an interim card while I wait for my ultra now but there's not much longer to go (I hope).

I did have a Leadtek 6800 NU, which was:
a) Cheap
b) BORKED
c) Very quick compared to my 9800Pro

The X800 and 6800 cards are so much faster than the last generation that nobody is going to be dissapointed :)

How much did CCL do them for? I've always found their prices a little high.

LOL, that's alot of money.Overclokers.UK was selling them for £300.95 (although you have to wait 4 more weeks).
Got my XFX6800U from www.stak.com for £385 vat included + delivery next day.
Or you can try www.microlandtechnology.com/products.asp?category=Video+Cards&subcategory=ASUS+%26+XFX
Seems that they will have some GT's in stock tomorrow

379 isn't a bad UK price for an ultra, I think you must think I mean the GT version which is 300.

Thanks for the heads up on the GT pricing though, if my pre-order gets put back again I think think I'll end up cancelling and going for whatever 6800 is available at that time whether it be a GT or an Ultra :)

Hmm theres a thread already on this.

PCworld components shop has them listed "In Stock" too, though @ £320+delivery.

This order247 - I have placed an orde, but there does not seem to be any info on the card, ie what brand etc. From the looks of it, could be a reference board. They will not let you check the order online, but will send you a letter with details etc. Also, a quick browse through their products lists EVERYTHING as being "IN STOCK" which seems strange.

I will phone customer support tomorrow to ascertain he status of my order, the brand, and when it will be shipped. I will post the findings here.

I phoned up microland about 3pm and asked them if they were still getting their 6800 Ultra's tomorrow and they told me they definitely were and I would get one out of that shipment, however now it seem's they've changed it from 1 Day to 5 Day's...same applies to the GT's :(
