    I'd be very keen to see this, I'm got the upgrade bug and would need to buy a new motherboard which will take my P4 Northy and has PCI-E to do this so for me theres even more gamble involved :)

    If anyone has done this upgrade from a 9800Pro I'd be interested to know the increase in performance too.

    Theres mine, but the place where im getting my mobo/cpu/mem hasnt sent me an email for me to go pick the parts up, so i cant build my system yet.

    And Matblack, im going from a 9800 Pro/P4 to GTO2/AMD 64, so i will post my scores and feedback on the card.

    I was in two minds on which card to get, but with the modding and price of the card, this card seems like a steal.

    yeah i bet lol. i dont understand why ocuk are calling them a one off deal

    I know of at least one site who's already had the cards in, but are currently out of stock, and another thats getting them in november:confused:

    These are a bargain. The only thing that is stopping me getting one is the lack of Pixel shader 3.0 support. I have migrated over to PCI-e and need a card, a voice in my head is telling me 6800 GT PCI-e, 'cos it's got pixel shader 3.0 support.

    No other site has yet had stock!!
    OcUK has been the first and still remains the only UK company with stock. :)
    Also stock is limited, Sapphire only have like another 500 cards left for your Europe. :eek:

    Hmm. Would this offer enough of an improvement over an X800XL?

    Sorely tempting at the price.

    If it was modded and clocked to XT PE speeds and you run games at 1600x1200 and above then yes, otherwise not really
