What's a BFG 6800GT OC worth/new RMA

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I recived this card Fed-Ex yesterday and is still in the box. I paid 321 for it about 8-9 months ago, at that time this was an awsome low price. What's it worth? ...............here is a photo of my old one http://www.bfgtech.com/6800GTOC.html here's one of the one BFG sent me......... http://www.rigshowcase.com/img/2159q9US/2597 are they both the same except the heatsinks? I was going to watercool it anyhow so heatsink does not matter to me. .........I'm calling BFG now.............I'm on hold, .......................

.........the question is should I,........OK the Tech just came back and said that both cards are the same except heatsinks. So what would you do, sell the card and buy a 7800agp or stick with the 6800GT and water cool it.

stick with the 6800GT and watercool it. OC it to 6800 Ultra speeds, or higher.

save up the change and make the move to PCI-e when you can.

you officially have my $0.02,

Not to forget, you also have to flash it to the Ultra Bios

nope that is incorrect. you do no thave to flash it to ultra bios.. in fact 90 percent of the time the bios flash doesnt work. Simple mod the stock bios to boot at 400/1.1 and raise the voltage in the bios to 1.5v and itll be an ultra w/o the name.

Thanks, I didn't know that because I saw some guys on the other forums about flashing the GT to Ultra. But hey thanks.
