the 512mb model was not, yes looking it up right now actully, the 256mb was 499 at launch the 512mb was not and was launched a few months like march 05 right before 7800GTX showed up.

Price: Let’s start out by citing Captain Obvious here. One thousand dollars is a lot of money. If you can afford a Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, this thing might be on your radar. If your choices for dinner are Top Ramen or peanut butter and jelly, consider something a little less exorbitant. After all, 512MB of memory simply won’t yield much performance over a 256MB in today’s games.

Fortunately, prices are already falling on BFG’s GeForce 6800 Ultra OC 512MB. Already Newegg offers the card for $884, while ZipZoomFly sells it for $890 with free second-day shipping. This is over $100 less than MSRP.
notice 884 is 100 under MSRP

Understanding that those improvements alone make it hard to stomach a $999 purchase, BFG bundles the card with a handful of value-added extras. There’s an 80mm case fan with blue LED lighting, Teflon pads for the bottom of your mouse, a t-shirt that lets everyone know you bought a 512MB graphics card, and a full copy of Far Cry. Though the bundle doesn’t make a huge difference in the grand scheme of things, Far Cry is a great game and the other items are each useful in their own ways. Just don’t wear that t-shirt on a first date.
so again I say the Geforce 6800 Ultra 512mb was the most expensive video card ever, also they are still expensive, so few where actully sold (wonder why) that they are now in the realm of the FX5800 ultra aka collectors items

Why do I find this thread revival so...epic? My Sapphire x1900xt 512 was purchased on Newegg for $449.99 in 2006. Worth maybe $20 today...what an investment! I've purchased top of the line ATI cards recently for less than half that. This industry changes so fast.

my old 1900xt + athlonx2 can play x264 and blueray movies. they are worth about $50 max.

my new $600 lappy with ati x3100 can't play x264 or blueray without horrible lag.
