    It's not shrink wrapped or sealed. Pass.

    Why would you let other people know about this erek? Isn't this something you want?

    I think I'd have a hard time buying anything for a collection from a eBay user named "Cheese Omelet"

    I do, but also previously managed to get the Holy Grail of FX 5800 Ultras... the Review Sample with Translucent Green shroud... that's the real prize

    Here she is:

    compared to some of the prices i got a good deal considering the value of the card... only paid 650 or so USD instead of over 2000+

    I've heard stories of non-genuine shrouds making it out into the wild. Hmmm.

    Remember when Ultra settings recommended 512MB of VRAM and no such card with that much memory existed yet? I remember getting my pair of 8800GTX with 768MB of VRAM in 2006 and the first game I played was Doom 3 with all the settings cranked on my 55" DLP TV at 1920x1080. Good times.

    Well this only sold for $800, a little disappointing. Then again it's a MSI card.

    the MSI packaging is far superior to the BFG Asylum, think it came with 10 games

    anyways... even being MSI... with it being the reference FX Flow design... I purchased this auction myself

    I was high bidder on the card until about $300. I knew I wouldn't win it since it had 30+ watchers. No need to win it since I'm content with the LNIB BFG 5800 Ultra I already have but it would have been nice to get my hands on another. I love that there is enthusiasm out there for this sort of useless junk.

    I was being sarcastic as I too am a retro video card junkie but in all seriousness, are you implying that a 5800 ultra is in fact useful junk?

    It didn't come with 10 games. The 5800 ultra NBOX that I received when I modded @ MSI forum. Did come with a shit ton of games. Was a $700 card though.
