    You sold an 8800GTX for $269 USD? That's ridiculous. You can't get an 8800GTS for the price, at least not at retailers or trading forums. What's the catch?

    My bad, I meant to say BFG OC 7900 GTX for @ $269 USD + shipping. I would give my left nut for a 8800GTX and would NEVER sell it if I got it.

    There's a brief review on the upcoming 2900xtx on dailytech - http://dailytech.com/ATI+Radeon+HD+2...rticle7052.htm

    It seems like 8800gtx is still the cream of the crop!

    I would not believe a single review of ANY video card until it is released and available. Plus, even if the GTX wins, I believe the pricepoint of the ATI card is much lower. Either way, all reviews we are seeing are mostly crap.

    Already saw that review. If I believed it were completely accurate, than Nvidia would already have completely won this round. However, the card is not out, and AMD is sure to get some major driver optimizations going before it hits stores. They will either perform comparably to the Nvidia equivalents, or be priced lower.

    Ah, yes, I agree.. that review should be taken with quite a few grains of salt, and of course a lower price point would make it very worthwhile.

    Any chance at getting more?? I'd pay around $450 for an 8800GTX...I'm sure many would as well. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    I'm currently in GPU limbo, the volt mod has my 7800GTX is on it's last leg and I'm awaiting the R600s price/performance before making a purchase...but ~450 deal would be too hard to pass up at the moment.<o:p></o:p>

    The 8800GTSs (both RAM sizes) are in pretty good spots. If you can, though, you might be best off waiting for the AMD answer if only because it will likely reduce 8800 prices. I wouldn't pay $350 for an 8800GTX. I'd never pay $450 for a video card.
