Default Dell nvidia 6800 - Maker??

I am thinking of selling my graphics card from my Dell machine but there is no indication/hint as to who makes it. I would rather advertise it as a well known card maker (assuming it is!) than just a "from-a-Dell".
All I know , it is a vanilla Nvidia 6800 - PCIe - 256mb.

...and if you have any idea how much I just ask for it - that would be gravy.
thanks

If it is just a 6800 and not say a GT or GS, you won't get much for it, maybe $75 or so. Ebay would be the best place to sell it for the most $$$. What brand it is is impossible to figure if it has no labels on it besides Dell's.

Actually, I think Dell gets their boards from PNY. Or at least they did...

There is no actual markings on them, it is just a "made for Dell" OEM graphics card.

Don't think it is PNY because the image/pic of their 6800 and the one in the DELL is quite different...and no, there is no marking whatsoever other than a green "Nvidia" sticker on the fan - thus the query :)

Anyway thanks for the replies and suggestion b1lk1 for 75$C ....sounds about right given that there is no box, cables or CD with drivers,etc.

the vanila 6800 has the 6800Ultra cooler.. and if it was the AGP version you coulda flash it to a 6800Ultra :P

bump good card.. used to have one in AGP format and flashed it... hehe
PCIe are the best overclocker tho for the vanila 6800 ;)
