with atacom, I'm sure that is for 1 card, and they will charge your card, but it is not actually in stock.

Yes, a SLI is what I'm searching for, hopefully two. But still that's just a plain obscene price.

I personally like how they have the model number as "GF FX6800 Ultra". Last time I checked, it wasn't a geforce fx. That is definately a ridiculous price.

I paid 475 euro for my MSI 6800GT and it still retails for 469 euro IF available. That's about 636 USD with current 1.34 rate.

bit pricey

Why would anyone get an ultra when they can save 100 bucks by OCing a GT? Heck you could probably find a kick ass cooler that will not take up two slots that will alow even more over clocking than the stock Ultra cooler for under the 100 dollar price difference.

Whoever buys an ultra for a grand is either a gullable n00b, or smoking weed.
