AWSOME gal, "seems the sales guy saw this was added to the order" With the discounts and all in the upgrade on the card about $300 worth, He saw it and cancelled it, so it would not bite into his commisions. I guess i could understand that, as i work part-on commision myself.
Still a cheap thing to do.
Anyways, i should have it in a few days with expidited shipping,
which is C00L.
I have The latest and greatest mix of AS ceramique and the cleaner and pre paste bottles in a review sample From "Colin T". Over at Arctic Silver..Another AWSOME guy!
I will be doing a "Photo + Video review" on the (U804) or 7800 Ultra, Install in my E1705 here shortly.
I should have had it today ;0(
But i guess i am lucky to get it at all
I will report on the progress.

Took OC`ed idle from 40-42*c to 31-35* C OC`d @ GPU 559 --MEM 624
