    Program to detect manufacturer on 6800GT?

    Hoping someone can help me out here. I purchased a 6800GT off ebay several months back. The card has worked flawlessly but now its time to sell it to move to PCI-E and Im not sure who the manufacturer is? It was listed as an XFX but the heatsink on the card has the mermaid on it, like the ones found on eVGA cards? No where else on the card is there any indication of the brand.. Does any one know of a program that can tell me who made this card?

    Thanks.

    Thats the reference board and a couple of brands use them, but put there name in the middle of the fan. Check the stickers with the serial number and part number some have the brand name on it.

    Hmm, mine does not have a sticker on the fan... Never even gave this a thought until I go to sell it and notice that every single XFX 6800GT I have seen looks like this..

    Two Slot Question

    Does your card which is the GT have one or two slot mounting?
    I have seen several different cards with the same design. My guess is
    eVga.
