Just thougth I'd tell you guyz that I have my POV 6800 Ultra and it rulez THIEF 3 so badly. The colors, shades and effects are much "richer" then on my Radeon. Stability is 100% and ForceWare drivers are AWESOME.

Good for you!!!! Another happy customer.

Now where is mine, I need to hunt down the Mail guy. I know he is carrying it around, waiting just to annoy me.

Can you give us some numbers ?
i'm interested to see how much of an improvment in Thief3 with the 6800 ...

like @1600x1200,Bloom,AF / @1600x1200,AA,AF .. etc .

Well in a couple days I will have a 6800 Ultra in addition to my current X800XT. Everyone kiss your arse goodbye because I am planning to let both cards come into physical contact with each other.

Matter and anti-matter mixing together. It will be like that episode of the original Star Trek where those two guys that were half-black/half-white ended up in an eternal struggle with the fate of all the universe in their hands!

I actually TURNED to the darkside and purchased (2) ATI x800 XT PE's. THANK GOD, both retailers failed to deliver. I Picked up my Gainward 6800 Ultra GS, and I am simply in awe. Ruinning 450/1200 FULLY stable with framerates I have never imagined! To make the deal even sweeter, the first time I booted up with the card, it was on a brand new rig, which also happened to be the first time the rig was booted up. I cannot get enough of my new comp! But Farcry is maxed and running in the 60fps with 4xAA!
DOOM3 this week to see what the computer can REALLY do!

nVidia is #1! There is no competition. :clap:

I love my GT. Does everything silkey smooth w/ 4 FSAA and 16aniso.. I run with optimizations on because I can't tell the difference and the framerate is very high..

I get such good framerates with my new gt, that it has taken all the fun out of tweaking. Now all I get to do is play the games. Boooooo. (tic)

I'll chime in: IRON FIST!

The 6800 does indeed rule! :)

But DOOM III has yet to be unleashed. The ultimate test awaits. Just how hot will these 6800's get?

In 3 days the Ph3^r begins!! ;)

I put an Asetek Waterchill water kit on my cpu+gpu+nb and now I can oc the 6800 ultra to 470/1.2 no prob...idle temps @ 45c load 49c. I highly recommend watercooling especially since doom 3 will be at ebgames on Thursday the 4th!! Cut temps down and improve stability dramatically!!! I get 13600 3dmark03 w/P4 3.0 oc to 3.6 Yes the 6800u rules!!!!! :nanahump:
