This wasn't even your thread to begin with, and the op even stated he is leaning towards the 8800GT.

Youve been here for a month, learn how the forums work before you flame a dedicated member.
If you got the median price it would be 130, i was not flaming you, you didn't even answer the question I asked. Which is why I was irritated.

Well man i didn't mean anything bad by it i was just trying to make sure you knew they're cheaper. If you want an ATI card and it makes you happy by all means go for it. I do love my 8800GT since its the first mid-high end gpu ive ever had (bought it for $215 in december 07) and its been good to me till this day.

The best bang for you buck would be getting a XFX 8800GS XXX or Alpha Dog Edition (I think they are the same thing?). Sure it is not a 8800GT but it is only $85 at newegg.com, $93 with the shipping.

Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core clock: 680MHz
Stream Processors: 96
Memory Clock: 1600MHz
Memory: 384MB 192-bit GDDR3
DirectX: DirectX 10
OpenGL: OpenGL 2.0
DVI: 2
TV-Out: HDTV / S-Video Out
Model #: PVT88SFDD4

nVidia all the WAY!!! and always trust XFX!!
