Can you give a small review on the card you bought?.. Have you tried OCing it yet or not?

You people with money suck. :mad:
You know what sucks more? Having money, but living in a country where everything is available 1 year after it's available in other countries, and for about extra 70% from its original cost 1 year ago, so you have to wait for friends to travel abroad so then can get you the stuff.. Something is defective? RMA is a joooooke :D

Why not have your friends ship it out to you?

Do you mean the Leadtek, which is what I just bought, or my BFG?

The Leadtek 6800GT you just bought.. I'm interested about the cooling system.. is it heavy? How good does it cool the card.. and it is noisy?

I paid 380 for it a month ago... those bastards!! Anyways, it was a great card. Overclocked like a monster, was very quiet, and the great cooling. But I started getting really bad screen corruption and then one day it just quit working. Some people have had problems with them before and had to have them sent back, others have bee fine. I get mine back next week, I can't wait. Hopefully what happened to mine was just bad luck, other than that it's a great card.

Just received mine today ( $299.00. I ordered on Monday) and got to fool with it for just alittle bit before I had to head to work.

At stock speeds I got 11,500 in 3Dmark03. ( My 9800pro would get 6000) WooHoo! Somewhat disappointed in my 3Dmark01 score though. My 9800pro would get 20,500 stock and this gets 22,080. I thought my score should be higher...

Next I installed coolbits and it reported 424/1120. I ran this speed for awhile in Battlefield Vietnam and it ran fine. The temp in coolbits after leaving the game was 54c.

However... This sumbitch is heavy! Solid block of copper here. I would be very careful moving your box around with one of these in it.

I am working 7pm-7am now. This morning, I'll get alittle sleep and have 5 days off to play with this card.

That's what I try to do.. But the problem I always face is how to send them the money, since all sites only accept american credit cards, so I can't buy from here and ship the product to them :(
