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 .
I can't get my machine to recognize any drivers but the ones it came with,
tried 56.x and 61.x

Just reminding people.. THE 6800 Ultra RULZ Y0 :D
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!

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:
