that would be the 6800 ultra, not the extreme edition

 

I guess that is what i get for going to anandtech for info:

We don't have any pricing information on the 6800 Ultra Extreme, but it will likely be very high as Ultras are going for $540 USD. We have been told by eVGA that the Ultra cards should retail for $500 while the Ultra Extremes should be $540...

 

...as your link shows, apparently they did start distributing them in June. Looks like the old supply and demand theory took this one to the roof.

:foldon:

yeah, everywhere i have seen it is around a thousand bucks

 

it's all about bragging rights, and having the fastest card out to date

 

the guy works for General Electric and he is a clan leader for a clan playing one of those new mmorpg's, so he likely is single and makes a ton of money

And quite possibly no girlfriend.... I would know  :P

yeah bro, if my gf found out i spent 9 bills on a card...rofl

 

She gets pissed when i get new paintball guns (1.4k-2k) imagen 900 for a little card...rofl, i mostly get my guns free now lol (sponsors :) )

 

I could never spend that much anyway... id have a hard time living with myself if i paid 450...plus every week there is a newer faster card, bragging rights dont last long... Plus who do i brag to...lol friends? Team mates? theyd be like "68 wha?"
