I got a machine from a recent deal, and managed to overclock my 256M 6800 (stock at 325/600) to 450/875 without any problem (I'm running on 850 for safety)! Almost a 50% overclock!!

I'm very happy with it, even though it's not moddable. :)

I hear about the Dell 6800's. Are these available for resale or only with a Dell PC? What are they worth and how do they comare to a typical 6800nu say like a BFG OC?

I bought it with a dell PC, I'm not sure whether it's sold seperately.

The major problem is that they cannot be softmodded, but if you can get as large an oc as I got, it would be on par with a gt (as can be seen from my scores). I guess not everyone has such a good luck, but the large oc I got on the RAM might indicate that either 2.5 or 2.8ns RAM is used, instead of 3.3.
