Newegg has a <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti..." target="_new">Sapphire X800Pro</A> on sale for $276 - thought this was a good enough dela to pass on to all...

If only I postponed my computer build by 3 months, I could've put a monster PC together for around $700.

My Chaintech nForce4 was $150 alone, and 6600GT was another $200. =(

Figured it was the PCIe one only while the AGP version is also double.

wonder why it's so low, r520 is due out all that soon, overstock?

but i payed a hell of a lot more for my x800pro(got it only four years after the paper launch, how lucky?), £220 ($360+)so i'm severly miffed off about this

Probably because nobody in their right mind would buy an X800 PRO when they could get an X800XL for cheaper...

Priced the same or even slightly higher than the XL, it is a steal - especially if it has the significantly better OC potential that I've heard about. Wonder what PCB this card is using?

Go to the ORB and do some comparisons between the two. Keep in mind that these are benchmarks but the results are interesting.

I've been reading that thread all along - Sinister Seagull Sh1T - it has gotten LONG! I looked in it last night before I went to bed and found a ton of new posts that were each 8 miles long. The sad thing is that I had checked a few hours before!

Yeah that's my job, I put the blame to mozz. It's tough work man, real difficult and ugly. But <b> SOMEBODY </b> has to do it :tongue:
