Opinions?

What do you guys reckon to this? is it a good price for a good card or is it substandard in some way?

Well apart from the cooler you do get at least 6800GT specs very cheaply. While I would say a referance design is best, the price of that does make it very attractive, worth it even if it doesn't overclock as much. Hopefully it's possible to replace the cooler as well.

You need to keep something in mind. that card does not work in the ABit AV8, or certain ASUS boards, and who knows what other boards due to its cooler. I cant use it myself because I use an AV8, but even alot of other boards dont work with it. Even those that do, make it impossible to use SATA ports, as the cooler obstructs them completely.

yeah it's a god idea with any 6800 to check for compatability near the agp slot, I had to bend a cap slightly on my msi board because it was inline with the pcb
