Well, I have the eVGA 6800 ultra and it runs great.. beside, it came with free Farcry..but I'm not sure if the eVGA 6800 non ultra will come with farcry or not.. also, eVGA have a very great customer support... I mean VERY VERY great

The BfgTech 6800nu is out at Best Buy's now. I picked one up yesterday, and it also comes with Far Cry. It comes oc'd a little out of the box. More importantly you get the lifetime warranty.

If it uses MSI own cooler , then i'd take the MSI's .

MSI's cooler has a fan speed controller starts from 2800RPM@30dBA & max of 4000RPM@38dBA .. thats on my GT anyway .

SH64 what is the wattage of the power supply in your system? i got my MSI 6800GT yesterday and whenever i install drivers for it and reboot, my machine crashes saying that the nvidia drivers are in a infinite loop. So im wondering if its a power issue, i have a 400 watt antec by the way

A LENGTHY thread on a forum devoted to MSI products indicates that its NX6800 graphics card is causing freeze ups.

I have a generic 400W PSU . is your GT a refernce design ??

I dont think its a power problem .. most likely a corrupted driver installation .. try uninstalling from the safe mode or use driver cleaner or something .

& my advice is NOT to install MSI's supplied drivers . download the 61.77 drivers from nvidia.com & install them right away .

No its not the reference design, its red with the copper cooler BEAUTIFUL card! i have tried 4 or 5 different drivers including the 61.77 and always its the same thing blue screen before it loads windows. Think i will send it back
for replacement, do you guys think it would be quicker to send it back to MSI?
(The site i bought it from no longer has any more in stock)
