....well, at least, fastest 6800nu on an AthlonXP (http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=3103603). At this level of graphics card performance, the CPU actually becomes something of a bottleneck. If I had a 64-bit processor, my score would go much higher. (And before someone asks, yes, there IS one '6800 non-Ultra' higher than me in the ORB with an AthlonXP....except it's not really a 6800nu, it's a 6800GE. Which is sort of a cross between a 6800nu and a 6800GT, but costs more than the GT. As if that makes sense.)

Anyway, Newegg stocks the model card I'm selling (http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=14-150-068&depa=0), so you can see several different views of the card on their site.

EDIT: And, here is a picture of the actual card in question, along with a printout of my GameVE invoice, for warranty purposes:
http://xanderf.dyndns.org:8080/images/pc/6800.jpg

It has Dual-DVI, and comes with two VGA->CRT adapters, so even if you just have 2 CRT monitors, you can still run multi-monitor with it. Of course, if you have 2 LCD monitors, you are set. This is the full retail box I'm selling - games, driver CD, etc.

Note that the overclocks I'm getting ARE with a waterblock, so I'll be putting the stock HSF back on before shipping. No extra cooling on the ram. The GeForce 6800s have a shim around the core that I've removed to make sure the stock HSF (or waterblock) makes bettter contact with the core, and the HSF will be applied using Arctic Silver. I'll include the shim with the shipment in case you need to put it back for any reason (reselling it or something).

Also should mention I modified the BIOS myself to give the card 1.5v on the core in 3d mode (default is 1.4v). This appears to have helped in the overclocks a bit! I will also include the floppy disk with the original BIOS on it.

Now, the IMPORTANT NOTE, HERE is that the card won't work 'stock' - you need to have a watercooling system or an nV Silencer. The stock HSF does not work for some reason. I think it got warped in storage or something. I have the mounting kit to put a Swiftech MCW50 block on this card, and I can include this kit with the card (so, if you have an MCW50 block, you are set). As noted, I'm still shipping the retail HSF and shim in case you need to RMA it or something. There is nothing wrong with the card itself, at all. It's just that the stock HSF, for some reason, doesn't cool it right, anymore.

The kind of odd status on the condition of the card is why I'd like to keep this as a seperate listing from my other sale posted here.

Asking price is $240, including shipping (to US destinations). I will ship internationally, but that may cost more. Also note that I have a pretty substantial list of items I'd take as trades, for some or all of the balance (http://xanderf.dyndns.org:8080/auctions/trades.html).

My eBay feedback is here (103-0-0) (http://cgi2.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=dderidex). I also have a heatware account with a UID 'XanderF' (http://www.heatware.com/eval.php?id=18437) - same email as above (16-0-0).
