Hey,

I ordered one around about 2-3 weeks ago from scan.co.uk and I still havent received it. I was wondering if anyone at all had them? I have noticed that dabs.com have just today got some in (so if any of you want one then get in there cause they only have 2 in stock), but no word from scan!

Anyway, I was wondering if any of you do have one, then what are your impressions of it...OC-ability...stabilty....HSF.... bundled software?

Cheers.

I phoned scan this morning and they said they were getting 3 XFX gt's in today, the only problem was there are 8 back orders, but then the guy I was speaking to said they may also get and order of 50 later today. Make of it what you will, i have tried to order one of those two from dabs with Sat delivery, fingers crossed!!

I believe this is a UK thread.

PPL, PCworld components store has them in stock... as much as i hate those thieving ****tards, paying £30 extra doesnt seem all that bad... I think i will still wait for mine at £290 from somewhere else though.

http://www.pcwcomponentcentre.co.uk and search for 6800 :)

If it says 'add to basket' then there in stock. Ordered one on Wednesday, arrived Yesterday. Looks like a reference design card with FarCry and Splinter cell bundled.

Abotu 20 quid over price but if you really want one...

Thanks for the replies, especially Dan. I guess I must be one of those back-orders. Hopefully one of the first three!

Anyway, I kinda have to get it through scan because they offered Interest Free Credit for 6 months, and thats about the only way I can afford it. Your order has to be above £300 though, so I got some Acoustic Insulation padding stuff for my case.

undercover: I'm guessing Splinter Cell:Pandora Tomorrow right? Not the original... I already have FarCry, but sounds good. Have you tried overclocking?

Oh well Dabs didn't ship today, cancelled order, Guess i'll have to wait till next week. I phoned scan just in case anyway about 3pm but they hadn't recieved any yet... but I happen to be working in Blackburn next week just round the corner from Scan.. maybe i'll pop in and see them, save myself the shipping.

It comes with Far Cry and Splinter Cell? :(

I already have both of those!

I thought it would come with the same bundle that the XFX 6800u has.

Mine didn't come with those. Just got it about an hour ago. Came with X2 - The Threat, MotoGP2 and Commandos 3.

Has anyone received an Ultra from Scan as yet ?

I've placed an order for a Gainward Ultra golden sample, i'd love to know when they are expected in and where i am in the queue.

Yup, still waiting for my order from Stack.Aparentely they will have stock on the 07/07.But then again so did they on the 05/07...Aniway, when i had my order with Overclokers.UK, for the GT (on the 15/05) first was next week, then soon, eventualy on the 16/06 e-mailed them, and was at least 3-4 weeks more.You guys get the point...Canceled it, and now waiting for 6800U
BTW, you can check availability in here (www.planetprices.co.uk/hardware/1049/2100449/1/Any-Geforce-FX-6800.html),
or go here (www.micromart.co.uk/default.asp?Category=stockists&StartLetter=M) for sites selling 6800 in the UK.Second link you probably need to do alpabethic search.
