Default Did they stop making 9800 Gx2s?

I don't want one, but I was curious to see what their price had gone down to, so I looked for it on newegg and tigerdirect, and couldn't find it on either.

Just buy a gtx260, it costs less and performs better. The only reason to buy a gx2 is if you want to stuff 4 of them in a rig for folding.

Yeah, I don't want one. I am just curious as to why they are not on those sites anymore.

Pretty much when new flagship cards come out, production stops on the last gen flagship card. So yes, i would guess they no longer make gx2's.

Pretty much discontinued..

If you still want one check eVGA B-Stock ( I read that you didn't)
