Looks like the NV silencer. Very good cooling solution, to aid in overclocking, or low noise operation.

Pls consider other factors like shipping all these, thats why a direct convert of US$ to S$ is not accurate at all. Its a bit mis-leading here.

Totally agree. The prices in Singapore tend to be >20% higher than the US prices. Need to multiply by 20% to derive final Singapore prices, which is again rough estimate. The final price is dictated by the distributors.

Various factors come in, whether card comes pre-overclocked or with custom heatsink fan like Zalman instead of the default Nvidia heatsink fan, and warranty period. If I'm not wrong, all are almost the same clock and mem speed except XFX. So if you want a pre-overclocked card, get XFX. If not ASUS will do because of 3 year warranty. The rest are also okay, maybe some games inside the bundle will attract you to them?

ATI's X1800XL is like 7800GT equivalent. But ragnarok95 will start nagging about heatsink fan design. So ultimately the choice is still yours.

http://www.vr-zone.com.sg/?i=3012&s=5

Seem like Nivdia better!

Can;t use a successful product VS a failed product.

X800 series = fail product.

U must be joking.

A X800XTPE is more than enough to trash a 6800U, not to mention X850XTPE.
