8800GTX, more powerful than a 1GB 2900 or so ive red, also the GTX's are quieter and dont suck as much power, agian thats what ive heard, i havent got first hand experience on either cards but i know where my money would go(8800 GTX)

Also $900? is that USD? because ive worked it out to be £440 or thereabouts?

after doing alot of studying just now.. the gtx only consumes about 140 watts of power and needs only 28 amps!!! at max consumptions with an average system i think it consumed only around the high 300's range... and with all that, i've got enough room to power a gtx.. thank god.... so with all that said,, i may just be buying that gtx after all... and just save the rest of the money for a purchase later on.

so my mind has changed again!! lol... one way or another.. its a race between a gtx and a 2900xt.. but the gtx suddenly looked delicious to me.. and i don't know why, but i really love how huge the card is.. lol as dumb as it sounds... its just like.. hey look inside my case... THAT MOTHA F*****'s huge!!!! hahaha... thats fun

It would still work, if his 8800GTS was an EVGA.

edit: Oh...I see...he meant his 2900XT.
