Default Evga 8800gts $263.99 After rebate, Free Shipping

EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card Retail 320-P2-N811-AR

What's a S-video, and why does it matter ?

Otherwise than the absence of the S-video thingy, this seems to be a good deal.

S-Video is a standard TV input in the US. Not sure about other countries or if you're even from a country outside of the US.

It can be hooked up to Composit cables as wel, for HD viewing on the GTX and Ultras. Usefulness? Hardly any... Unless you have a TV tuner and want a sweet DVR :-P

wow...That's an excellent deal. I think S-Video has a slightly better quality, than the yellow composite.

Great find. eVGA prevails again. Svideo is a connection to output a signal that a tv can use. It is better than composite.

It's still mixed, there is another thread about the possibility of the 9000 series being announced at the same time. I still think I'm going to wait it out and see.
