When I had my 6800OC, it ran quite cool and modded to 16/6 no prob's. Unfortunately, my PSU killed it.

BFG gave me a GT for it though :)

Please allow two weeks for your card to come in stock as we are running low.

Yes, we will send an Ultra card if we cannot process this RMA within a reasonable time period. Most likely you will recieve your exact card before action such as that is required.

Please reply to the last message from us so we are able to see what was accomplished with the previous correspondence.

2 weeks???
There is no way in hell I would wait 2 weeks
on a replacment card.
I've only had to rma 1 card before and it
was an ATI 9700Pro.
I had a new card 2 days after I called.

I also picked up the BFG GeForce 6800 for my system. I had a 6800 GT before, and I thought the 6800 was a better deal at $150 less. Plus, it comes with a free copy of Far Cry. I saved $200 total by going down to a 6800. I'm not an avid gamer, and my system is old so I thought the 6800 GT would be too much for it.

Had an Antec SL400 w/ bad wiring in the house, so the dips were horrible (11.2/10.9) and my PSU basically burned it out.

Replaced with an Enermax 431, w/20A on rail, and dips are a lot less (lowest 11.6)

It took them about 3 weeks for my card...so they sent me a GT instead.

Going to get one tonight! :clap: My faithful Gainward 4600 has served me well for the past few years, but it's time to move on to bigger and better things. I had originally planned on getting the PNY 6800 @ CompUSA for the same price; after $30 rebate. From what I hear about BFG's product and user reviews of the card, it seems like I'm getting a little more for the $.
