Let us know how it compares to the GTX...I am currently in the market for a high end GFX but don't know where to turn. I would like the GTX 512 but cost is prohibitive, and I haven't even been able to locate one for purchase anyway. So it will be either the GTX 256 or the 1800xt most likely.

Yeah, I thought Sapphire was making them. Maybe it still qualifies as BBA because Sapphire has their own version of cards?

Yeah I know they put Sapphire in charge of making the cards, I dunno if they just say their BBA cause of that though.

was getting some crashing with my card n didnt know what it was and then i tryed to clock it and it was running but then crashed so i went to stock.
Then my pc was crashing all the time and now it wont post, but iv noticed 2 small red leds right beside the power plug on the x1800xt that was on. so i took it out to see what they was and one says "t_fault" and the other says "ext_pwr" does this mean not enugh power from my psu, or is my psu now burnt out? my pc starts but it dont post it just runs on a blank screenwith 2 red leds on the card.

EDT:
Its a Tagan TG480-U01 480w psu, cost me £80 a year ago so was expecting somthing that lasts

Nice scores there man
Yes my system is buggy, the extra power cable that goes into the motherborad has allmost melted onto the motherborad so i think maybe not enugh power or dodgy psu.
