I cannot find this card anywhere. Since I'm stuck with an AGP motherbaord for a while I want a serious performance leap over the 9800pro, and a 6800GT is a lot of money for not a lot of leap.

A 6800GT is a slower clocked ultra, dude.

Yeah, you can overclock the GT to Ultra stock speeds (400 or more, depending on your card) but an Ultra can easily clock to 450/1200. That's what I've been running for the past year. I'm sure if I were using water, I'd get higher than that.

Yeah I know, but I want something thats gonna last, and the price difference between the two isn't that great, btu the availability difference is phenomenal. No UK based websites selling the AGP ultra.

Yeah I know, but they're rare in AGP, and yet at second hand prices more affordable than a new motherboard/processor/7800GT

Honestly, get an x800xt if you don't mind the lack of sm3.0.

The ultra OC I had before was not near as smooth.

If you are looking for an ultra AGP, they should be present in a few places. Not sure bout UK though, hope the forum deal works out :D

In the UK they don't exist for less than 520, second hand from the USA its a different matter. It's just this 128MB radeon feels veeeeeeeeery sluggish.

I'd be willing to ship you a gigabyte x800xt for $255 + shipping fees. agp too.

I've got a XFX 6800 ultra I'm going to be getting rid of. (Just got a 7800GTX). It's AGP and has a NV5 SIlencer attached. I'll include the original heatsink/fan too. I'm asking $400 CAD + shipping. You can pick the shipping method.

It will come in the original box with all manuals, driver cd's, games, etc. It's a great card. Overclocks to 445/1.22 with no problems. And it's nice and quiet with the silencer on it. The shipping will cost probably around $100 CAD to the UK. (I know it's expensive but that's what the purolator estimater is telling me). If you would like to see pics of the card and stuff it comes with, let me know.
