Wow - I just laid my fingers on six boxes of BFG 6800GT OC's here at the Fry's in Austin. If I didn't already have a X800XT PE I would of been all over one or if it had been the Ultra version. If someone really wants one of these cards and is within driving range of Austin it may be worth your while!

This was at 1:00pm CST

Price is $399.99 plus tax

Sorry if there is already a post about this.

Yeah I already bought and sold a X800 Pro last month LOL. If I am going to get another card it will be the Ultra version of this card.

Damn salespeople are trying to sell 5950's and 9800XT's that are $100 more than this card telling them it is the fastest one available there. I would have stepped in and corrected them but that would mean less cards for you folks.

That's messed up man, telling people the 9800XT was faster and all. How much did they want for the 9800XT? $400 still? Our local BB had them marked at $499 last week even though there were preorder boxes for X800 Pros for $399. That's kinda lame I thought...

I believe they are still selling them at $499 or $450 but it's still sad since the GT is cheaper and a lot faster. They had some Visiontek X800 cards a few weeks ago that also sold for $399. Those sold out in two days I think.
