Just get a 9800GTX, they're basically the same card, same price and 9800GTXs are much easier to find

That's what I figured as well... Nobody would ask for an 8800GTX for no reason .

L.A. Computer Center - Product Detail


But at that price you'd be better off buying a GTX295

Keep an eye on your local classifieds, put up a WTB ad and see if anyone gets back to you, I get tons of responses on kijiji and craigslist when i use WTBs, just fishing for what's out there.

also the 9800gtx is the same as the 8800gts 512mb. the 880gtx is faster at higher resolutions.
