I know i did say that i was getting 6800GT sometime soon, but as orders are running a tad short, i was put on the long wait list (even though i told them i would like it before the 28th/29th of August [LAN]) so i cancelled my order. Now i'm just wondering what should i get. A 6800GT for $720 AUD or a 6800U for $850 AUD?

I tried a GT, then switched to an Ultra. I'm happiest with the Ultra even if it costs more. It has a better cooling system plus it can overclock higher than the GT's. Thats my nickle.

I have not read much on the Ultra's ability to overclock. I would like to think they could overclock well. I still have not overclocked my GT.

Hey FluxCap,

Know I've seen you somewhere else, but can't remember where...:)

ABXZ maybe?

My ultra is 52c idle and 67c running the 'dribble' demo. That's at 425/1.15. So far I have only had this one OC to 441/1.20. With fastwrites off it will hold up to 449 on the core, however the real impact on gaming is smaller than you might think. Most ultra's are better at overclocking. My ultra seems to run smoother than my GT did. No occasional hitching and I can really feel its power. I am running all my games now with no anisotropic or trilinear optimizations and max details. I am able to do that at 425/1.15 with no problem. I am glad I got it. I am not going to need a new card for some time.

I have 2 brands in mind.. either the Albatron 6800GT or the Prolink Pixelview 6800U

I don't think I will go back there much. I got flamed once I bought an Nvidia card and one of the flamers was a mod. Immature stuff over there. :lame:
