:D Well I just scored a EVGA GeForce 6800 GT 256MB for $259.00 from anandtech forums! All I have to do now is sell my 9800 Pro 128MB for around 120 dollars and the total cost of the 6800 GT is only 139 bucks! AWESOME! I have a Zalman VF 700 CU on the way as well. OMFG sooo happy! :jumping:

Very nice man, I love anandtech, good prices. BTW, I got my 6800NU for 270 back in December so hearing all these people getting GT's for less than what I paid for my NU is very sad :(

yeah anandtech forums seems to be very competetive when it comes to selling stuff. i was surprised at the thread where i found the 6800 gt for 259. it was three pages long and no one was showing any interest. ofcourse the last page was me going insane and bumping it to the top saying i want to buy lol.

I sold my 9800 Pro for $130 and bought a regular XFX 6800 for $180 (on craigslist.org), that was a nice upgrade for $50.
I like yours better though.

However, a word of warning, one that we at nVNews know all too well, please be very careful not to get any semen on your new components.:condom:

well i decided to buy some nice pc3200 ram and see how far I can take this amd xp 2700+ (i tested it async (memory at 166) and pushed the cpu to 200fsb it posted and booted fine, then i tried 210fsb and all was fine as well) just my pc2700 ram wont go to 200fsb. soo heres the memory i bought:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231012

g.skill pc3200 2-3-3-6. g.skill have said that the ram can do 433MHZ OR DDR480 at CL 2.5-4-4-8. (http://www.gskill.com/f1-3200phu2-zx.html). And many people seem to be achieving that as well. cant wait!
