Sounds good, might get it before you :lol:

Nah I wont, but sounds like a good offer.

However, I dont think buying GFX cards from ebay is a good idea.

I am getting a Leadtek 6800 GT, 256mb AGP for 220. Including 2 full games.

Gandy, that Leadtek one is £199 inc VAT, but it looks like the best deal i've seen around for new condition

and that Asus one is more of a budget/cutdown GT, uses the same PCB, but has 128MB ram running @ 700MHz rather than 256MB @ 1000MHz, it has 16 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex pipes like the GT though.

I'd go the Leadtek one tbh, or risk the Ebay used one :S
