    Question Wow! A cheap 6800 Ultra! Why?

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...tml?NOV-GF68UL

    Can anyone tell me why this card i so cheap. Its a novatech own brand, but it it likely to be crapper than any other make? Its so much cheaper than the 300 quid you pay elsewhere.
    I'm after one for this guy at work, but I dont wanna get him a dodgy one.

    Looks legit, I would have got one myself if I had known...There isn't much difference between the brands, it's really a case of which one puts together a better bundle, and if they pre-overclock them. You might wanna try contacting them first, because they have a pic of a 6800GT there

    AGP ULTRAs are around 270-300 quid. This looks like a brilliant deal, but I think I will skip and go for a 7800GT
