Here's a quick question: How much did it cost, where'd you buy it, and when?

Though it's pretty certain it's a GT. I just noticed it's PCI-X, and, as Sat stated, the plain PCI-x ones don't have a molex.

It's PCI-E not PCI-X.

And for the card, it kind of looks like the Ultra since that card requires two slots.

Dont all videocards come with a bios, so just putting it in and loading into your motherboard bios you wont even need to have windows installed on your pc to find out, remember it should show which card it is before getting into the mb bios.

Unfortunately since the GeForce 6 series the Video card bios post was removed.

The card is not an EVGA card.

Rev00 sticker indicates it is possibly an engineering sample.

It does very much look like a 6800Ultra, but has the GT fan and heatsink assembly.

It could possibly be an engineering sample of a 6800LE that never made it to market.

Installing the card and opening the driver control panel should give an indication of the card, but if it has a modified bios that wont help. Only other way is to open the bios with a bios editor and see what the device ID number is and the Vendor ID# is. Then you can get closer to finding out exactly what and where the card is from.

Ooops. Probably as irritating as someone saying nucular. Now where'd I leave that tar and feathers?

Great help from everyone. When I check for the vendor ID (in 3D Mark 05) it shows it to be nVidia (0x10de), which is odd, since I didn't think NV sold directly. I also checked past purchases on my cc but didn't come up with the obvious culprit. I also scanned most of the major resellers of nVidia cards to see if I could come up with an identical looking card, but no luck so far. eVGA comes closest in looks but auswak says no way, so I am left with a mystery manufacturer. The numbers I got for chip and memory were a little off what a true GT should be I think, too. nVidia says 250/1000, I show 351/897, but maybe that's a meaningless difference.

Thanks everyone. I posted it for sale on ebay today if you want a look.
