I'm having my GeForce 8800GT replaced under warranty and can expect a weeks delay. Is this shortage real? JS.

Most of the newer high end GPU's are in very short supply. AFAIK, the G92 (the chip used in your GPU) is not included in this shortage. obsidian86 a b U Graphics card December 29, 2009 11:07:26 PM they will prob send you a gts 250 or if you lucky a gtx 260 or they say screw you and send a gt 240 Related resources Looking to upgrade or replace my XPS420 - Forum Dell XPS420 -- BF3 - Forum Audio Dell xps420 - Forum Replacement PSU for Dell XPS420 (UK) - Forum Xps420 boots only from main plug - Forum Can't find your answer ?

All well (so far). rolli59 a c 1004 U Graphics card January 5, 2010 2:54:35 AM Does it look new? It has been awhile since Nvidia renamed the 8800GT 9800GT so I am just wondering if they slap a sticker with 8800GT on them for Dell. MonkeyMe January 5, 2010 6:10:58 PM No stickers but invoiced as 8800gt. It looked new in sealed clear plastic and ott foam padded big cardboard packaging. Tech installer said it was a likely reconditioned replacement. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
