I got my 7800gtx GO from Bal`thzar yesterday. Took about 10 days to get here, so it was pretty quick, i was just impatient. Bal`thzar was awesome to deal with! Highly recommended.
Just remember how lucky you Americans are! I had to pay $400 USD to get this card, plus extra for the power adapter, and it seems like that is all you have to pay now to still get it. So don't whine too much.
My 130w power adapter arrived today, but i have to go to work in an hour, so I won't be able to do the mod until i get home tonight (in 4 hours), or until tomorrow. Its a rev A00 so i'm hoping i dont have problems. I've dled the bios update, and most of my stuff is backed up just in case.
I'll be posting up info about the mod on an australian forum, and ill be making sure i give due credit to you guys on this forum!!
