    you might be able to unlock the pipes on these to give you a speed boost, also you can generally overclock these quite a bit. I got mine to 450/750 ish with an extra 4 pipes which competes pretty well with a GT. Mines the AGP version though and as always with overclocking mileage may vary

    It's got an SLI link thingy at the side of the card, so I presume it'll do SLI.

    This is a steal for the price. I wouldn't be advertising this on a forum if I were you

    It looks fine... But you're not gonna get it for £26 or anywhere near that.

    It'll receive a ton of bids in the last few minutes / seconds of the auction

    I bought one of those myself on Ebay a while ago, I paid £119 or so for it, it's quite a nice card to own, but I doubt that it will run in SLI, as it is a OEM card. My 6800 came from an high end Dell machine, according to the description in the auction at the time.
    But I am looking into overclocking this a bit when I have time. It is well worth spending around £100 on this one I think.
