Leadtek GeForce 8800GT (G92) 512MB $209.99 (-$20 mail in rebate = $189.99)

This is one of the best deals I've seen on a 512mb version of the 8800gt.

They're charging about $7.00 for ground shipping on this item.


Just thought I would share it with the forums, might help someone make a decision on what/where to buy an 8800GT.

Not a bad price. Should be cheaper. No dx10.1 support means the card will perform badly now and forever. ATI is a much better buy atm. By all estimates when dx10.1 releases the 3870 models will pass the GTs pretty easy and will get updates for years to come.

lol this is like the 5th thread he has posted his DX10.1 BS in. The truth is the nvidia g92 cards slaughter the hd3850 and hd3870 cards. jerseygamer actually recommended a $450 3870x2 for a budget build on account of this DX10.1 crap.

The head of Crytek actually called DX10 and DX10.1 minor improvements to visuals, he said they're definately not the graphics revolutions ATI/AMD has made them out to be.

Please stop the baggery. You sound like a broken record. Yes, yes we are all aware of dx10.1, but in reality the geforce 8 (and 9) series are not exactly going to be left in the dust when dx10.1 is released. It will be a looooong time before 10.1 is the minimum requirement, and games for quite some time to come will still have dx10 and dx9 render paths (adoption of vista and dx10 is crawling).

Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE ATi fan, but unless there are some significant changes soon, I will be putting an 8800GT into my new build.

I can't believe I just fed a troll.

ATI used to be my pick as well back in the X1900 series days. The G80 and G92 parts simply showed up and started offering better performance per dollar.

Are you from the future?
Nevermind, that was the other thread.
