    I havent bought a SCAN FX 6800gt, but I have had business with them, and I must say, FIRST CLASS. I ordered my XFX 6800gt on the friday and it was here by the monday, however I can't remember wether I paid more for shipping as this was about 8 Months ago. And now if you buy from scan you can take advantage of the hexus members getting free postage sceme.

    Well if it's the card itself that you're worried about, GeForce 6 series stuff doesn't seem to deviate from the reference design much, so you can't really go wrong, it's just the bundle, and sometimes the clock speeds, that differ.

    SFX boards are probably the same as the regular nVidia boards, and definately with the free postage the look good. Hopefully some more products will come out.

    The ScanFX cards are just XFX. My ScanFX 6600GT is XFX branded and came in a XFX branded box. Odd as it cheaper than an OEM XFX one. Well done Scan, but i am not sure why they are seling them that way???

    I'm strangely not surprised by it being XFX for some reason, it's very odd though. I see you've overclocked yours a fair amount, looks good.
