I decided to go with all you guys, the reviews finally did the trick. So, i just ordered from Outpost, with next say shipping for $11. Is the BFG 6800GT OC a great card? How much from a 5900NU upgrade would it be? Can't wait til tomorrow, guy said it will ship tonight, then be here tomorrow.

You should see a massive increase if you can go by benchmark like 3dmark03 as an example a 5900nu would be scoring in the 5000-6000 range. The 6800GT OC will score in the 11000's on avg

I am doing the same upgrade. You are talking 2-3x increase in speed.

I have a 9800NP which is about on par with the FX5900 and I'm getting my BFG Geforce 6800GT OC tomorrow from www.gameve.com ($390 + $8 Shipping). I can't wait for it! :ORDER:

Thanks for the replies guys, no one usually replies to my posts. :screwy:
So, my 3dMark03 score was 5762 with 5900. I'll test tomorrow the 6800GTOC to see what I get.

I was told they would possibly be in Saturday.. this is why I didnt trust any place I called that gave me a date they expected them to be instock.. bought from compuplus and overpaid by 39.00 but it will be here tomorrow..

looks like Gameve has the XFX in stock for 405.00

Yep, the guy i spoke to on the phone said they got a huge shipment in that night. Before that, they were all out. I guess i'm just lucky. This is all after CompUSA fudged me over in the deal about the "30 % off" 6800 Ultra. Oh well, I think I wil be well satisfied with the BFG 6800GT OC, lots say you can get past Ultra speeds, which is awesome.
