Yea dude, I didn't think that this 5900 Ultra was THAT much better than my 5700LE, but its about 4/5th better than my 5700LE... Only 1 problem, capacitors aren't soldered to the PCB .

The 6800GS isnt really that powerful its just that the FX5200 was a horrible card and got beaten by cards that were older than it (and cheaper).
Very nice!

Even 9600xt to 6800GT was a huge bump in performance so your eyeballs gotta bounce out while riding the 6800GS after crapy 5200

also i just looked at guru3d.com and some reviews on the 6800GS
it says that it has call of duty 2 included. can anyone confirm that with me??? i do not see it listen on newegg.com where I bought it from.

Latest drivers are always the best cos these are programable gpu's and Nvidia enchances their drivers "as new games comeout" for best performance you can get. Stick with original nvidia drivers not optimized 3rd party ones imo. I had a MSI 6800GS which included a boxed Colin Mcrae Rally 2005 DVD. Leadtek ones come with a Splinter Cell Chaos Theory DVD so bundle changes from brand to brand tho.
