over clocks are the same on both cards. I dunno if theres any european dealers selling bfg cards. I cant say, since Im in USA. There maybe some UK stores that might have it. Also, there may be some USA retailers that will ship overseas. However, I dont know if the warranty will be honored outside of US regarding BFG's if its shipped outside of US by a retailer.If BFG ships to a european retailer, then the warranty is good since it was designated to go overseas.

You should be fine with an xfx if you cant find a bfg. BFG does have true lifetime warranty tho. Xfx is I believe 1 year.

and regarding overclockbility is it the same since they have the same specs? one thing i noticed regarding the xfx its that some sites review it as a normal ultra not a overclocked out ot the box are there 2 versions of it ?

This is the only XFX 6800 Ultra (http://www.xfxforce.com/product_view.php?sku=PVT40FUD) that I'm aware of and it is clocked at the stock 400MHz. The BFG 6800 Ultra OC is overcloced at 425MHz.

I emailed our BFG representative and asked. I will let you know when we get an answer.

I can't think of any off the top of my head. You could try Pricewatch for a large list.

Does it have to be bfg?? You could always go for Gainward.
