Sorry, cant help you with your question :( but I was lucky to find an Ultra here in South Africa even though our stock allocation is like recieving 1 card for every 30 ordered. I just recieved confirmation a few minutes ago that I get mine Tuesday next week. But yeah, I believe they are scarce at the moment. Not just Gainward, but across the entire high end card range :( Its really bad!

I wouldn't buy one then. You never know what happenes if it's defective or not working as it should.
The same thing happened to the brand that's no BFG.
That's why i don't give a crap about their lifetime warranty.
That brand had that too until the went out of buisness.
(Not saying BFG is bad. I just wouldn't buy one because of the warranty only.)

What's realy strange is that you find one brand or another in E-store and just at the end of the day they are out of stock, but you can't find Gainward any where.
I found BFG,EVGA,MSI,Gigabyte,Leadtek and many others but not Gainward. :hmmm:

No, Gainward isn't out of the market, at least I think not (xmasmile) I found plenty of stores selling gainward cards here in Finland :)
"Gainward GeForce 6800 GT 256 Mt Golden Sample AGP Stores:82 Low. Price:454 High.Price:529 " (xmastong)

Heh, maybe they all got sent to Finland for some reason? (snowlol)

I thought they announced they're pulling out of the US market.

Good. Im tired of looking at those hideous heatsinks.

Which one had the big campy flames? Looked like a 5-year old boy who loved Hot Wheels designed that mess. (xmasgrin)

Yes, gainwards are very hard to find in the US if at all. If you really want one you have to import it.

However, I want to say that BFG is Gainwards US counterpart, they both offerd Ultras at 475mhz and a factory water solution.

Gainward's Golden sample 6800Gt comes with 1.6n Memory chip while BFG doesn't so Gainward > BFG (mikec)
