Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2400 TV-DVI-DVI 6800 GT AGP
Brand new in retail box
1 year mfg warranty
DOA coverage (Provided by third party)

Card features include:

-Extremely high potential to O/C to 6800 Ultra speeds
-Dual fan cooling solution

The GPU of the Gainward 6800 GT is identical to the Gainward 6800 GT Golden Sample (See note at bottom). It has all the overclockability, with none of the price premium of a Golden Sample. The only difference is you will have to O/C it manually.

Included with,but not limited to, the card is Gainwards eXpert Tool, which allows for out of the box O/Cing and fan control.





A Very Detailed Review(Golden Sample review):

Toms Hardware General Performance Graphs(Review is for an Ati X700, but 6800 GT is in the compare graphs):


Remember, this is a private sale. There is no GST and no shipping charges. I live in Calgary, so whoever ends up buying it can either pick it up or I can drop it off.

Note: "Golden Sample" refers to a factory O/C'd model which is set to 6800 Ultra speeds. Gainward Golden Sample cards carry a price premium because of this factory O/C and the ability to O/C under warranty. Other then that, the cards are identical.

I would have to put another $700 into my system to realize the full potential of the card. When I bought it, I figured I would just drop it in and be done with it. However, I had a constant nagging in the back of my mind that I wouldn't be maximizing the power of the card. To do so, I'd have to replace everything but my case (P.S. ,Mobo , RAM, Processor).

If I upgrade the rest of my system, now, I'll be unable to upgrade it any further in half a year because we're on the verge of a technology turnover (socket 775, DDR2 and PCI-X are phasing in)

It would be alot of money and I would rather wait a bit and put it towards a next gen system. This way I can spend the same money and still be able to add components as they phase in.

If you already have a top notch system capable of supporting this card, this card would be perfect for you.

I would love to keep the card if the rest of my system was up to par, but it requires too drastic a facelift.

As for the card, I bought it from an e-tailer on eBay and ,obviously , refunds aren't accepted.

I am selling it for the exact price I bought it for, so there is no profit in this for me. I just want to recover my costs. The selling price is the same as if you bought it from an online retailer who isn't charging GST or shipping. Unlike an on-line retailer, it's available now and you don't have to wait for it to come in stock! Remember, the card comes with Dead On Arrival protection and still carries the manufacturers 1 year warranty.

Please feel free to PM me if interested.
