Default 8800ULTRA out today on NEWEGG!!

price tag of 830$, better then i thought.
Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P2-N881-AR GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

yay.

Still a waste of that much money IMO.

True, its been out, but not for retail sale.
And yes, id rather save about 350$ and get an overclocked GTX. Or in this case just get two 8800GTS 640mb and SLI for less then one ULTRA. haha.

from that guy's store comment, the 8800Ultra is 5% better than the GTX. Any better reviews? I'd like to see how the 8900GTX does though
