why get a gt when the g92 gts is so much better???

Simple.

The 8800gts cost more

Thats not to say the extra performance isnt worth every extra penny IMO ;)

I happen to have a BFG 8800 GT OC that's still unopened, purchased from Best Buy. PM me if you're interested.

It is for overclocking, I think.

my gts has way higher clocks that a gt it is cool and and quiet to bring a gt up to the gts level you will need to spend extra on cooling and that brings the price to about level that of a gts

Or you could just spend a sensible amount of money and get a good card and not overclock it to a GTS :heink:

a sensible amount of money varies from person to person ok my disposable income is a third of my pay bout Nz $125 a week. im not saying people must buy this card im saying if they have the $ to go a bit extra go for it. and did you take the picture in you avatar that is soo random

Ok I'm a cheapass. I could upgrade my x1950 pro to a HD3850/8800GT for as much as I paid for the x1950 pro (which was an upgrade from a 9800 pro) which is just over $AU300. However, the performance difference just doesn't justify the price to me. I should get at least a 1% performance increase for every $ I spend.

My avatar is a google pic, and if I actually had a cat it probably wouldn't be that cool ;)

I take it you got it from MSY, considering they still sell it for $479.

:D  Supply and demand my friend, but they are a little easier to come by now that the big announcement and performence stats boom is over.

You can also still order the standard 8800GT directly from the EVGA website....

I just ordered a 8800GTS 512 from NewEgg and I am incredibly excited!
