This card is Xtasy! It is sooooo nice looking! I am amazed at how small it is. I thought it would be much larger! BTW I preordered 6/14 at Best Buy.

Its pretty bad here...sorta. My card as of 9 AM EST, was only 25 minutes from here and the bad part is, is that it has now been over 3 hours and still nothing, but it will be here today sometime.

*UPDATE*

Mine just arrived! :clap:

They must not have received very many of the BFG 6800 Ultra's
I ordered mine on the 14th and I still haven't recieved a tracking number
I'm still getting order is being processed takes 1 - 2 days to ship.

i just installed my 6800 ultra oc. here's what i got so far for test.
using 61.72 drivers with sp2. patch for farcry isn't out yet though so the 6800 is still usin the old fx paths.
i set it to 1600 res with full aa and af. loaded archive level where all those banding pics are usually taken and got 30 - 40 fps depending where i was facing. that's a pretty insane fps upgrade from 5950 ultra at 1024 res.
i loaded dam level ( volcano level is not the 1 that kills performance, the dam level is the 1 that has all the lava), i went to where all the rocket launcher guys are firing at men and then you when you walk by. when you get close to the 2 guys , basically cresting the little hill to where you can see em, fps will drop to 15. this happened on the 5950 to. but my theory is this is not video card issue. the ai for the dam level is intense, all the mobs fighting eachother and stuff. it's cpu limited is my theory. i have a p4 3.2EE.

thief 3 runs like a charm in 1600x1200
