I can't find a US site that will ship 6800s to the UK, and Dabs, Overclockers and Komplett are out of stock.

Anyone know of a reliable UK source for the 6800?

It will be alot better if you can give us direct link, so far I cant find it in Nvidia favour and HotDEALs forum, here was nothing in the search forum too. (wack)

The Boatman, I found some 6800s already available to sell on ebay (http://search.ebay.co.uk/Geforce-6800_W0QQmaxrecordsreturnedZ300QQsalocatedincountr yZ3QQsocurrencydisplayZ2QQsokeywordredirectZ1QQsor ecordsperpageZ50QQsosortpropertyZ1), that will be alot easier than search every stores that ran out of stock. :)

Well, on this forum in particular I've heard mixed reviews about previous XFX products. But mine seems absolutely fine. I O/C my GT up to 415/1.09 without any trouble, and it comes in a nifty box if thats your kind of thing!

Not really anything special about it. Comes with MotoGP2, X2 - The Threat and Commandos 3. Haven't had to use support yet.

got mine from pcworld online (they were the first place to have it that i could find!) - PNY GT, came with far cry (on dvd) and splinter cell which are better games in my view :)

all the makes are basically the same, with a different sticker on - unless you get one that is warrantied to OC or something
