that is just plain cool.
256mb of ram, wow!

Cool yes, but not worth it. Rather spend the money on a plain 6800... wait i did :)

the voltage jumper is neat.

im hoping for a pci express version. 2 of these in sli will surely beat a 6800gt. and they overclock great, especially if they came with 1.6ns ram

Im afaid that card would beat a plain 6800 at lease im kind of sure, cuase i have been beat by one 6600gt highly overclocked that is.

I really would love to know if the card is physically limited by a 128bit memory controller or if it is a bios enabled restriction.

I know the memory on many of the 6600GT cards is DDR3 ram. This ram is also on the 256bit memory controller enabled 6800 cards.

It's a nice looking card, I would certainly never turn it away, but honestly the 128bit memory bus really limits it from effectively using 256mb of texture space. So essentially this card would be a waste of money and would not likely perform much faster than an el cheapo 6600GT 128mb.

A good idea yes, but the added cost would be better spent on a cheap 6800 series card with 256bit memory bus.
