    Got to disagree, the ultra out performs the ATI RADEON X850 XT PE

    I am not sure of the differences between the 2, Radeon & Nvidia. I prefer Nvidia because I think that they make better drivers than ATI. Just my humble opinion, of course!

    i always been a ati guy so if i go to the ultra does it have overclocking abilities not that i would need to

    yeah the ultra is good for overclocking and as Pulsar said Nvidia cards tend to have better drivers, theres alot of people who are either ati only or nvidia only ....the reason i went for the gainward 6800gt is it runs faster than the 6800 ultra 400/1200 vs 400/1100 just wish i could afford one ....just my opinion

    That's kinda impressive, two cards working as one ...i saw the same thing on the alienware site , that's got to be expensive :(

    Check out the results from some major benchmarks. You guys are "Dead On".....X850 vs 6800 Ultra. X850 is 19% faster in some benchmarks!! DOH! And, no doubt the dual 6800 Ultra or X850's are sick. .. totally out of control.

    I like the little bridging link that you can get. You can put the cards 2 or 3 slots apart (for cooling I guess)

    I would like to see some of the benchmarking (3D Mark 03) for these cards. Couple with 16x, instead of 8x AGP. Whoaa, these will truly rock & are the way to go.
    When they will make them multiple, I guess it is just a matter of time! 3D mark 05 will have something to worry about!! LOL
