Seems like the best price/value probably until after this summer eh?

and on a side note i have owned the gtx and gt

and the gtx PWNS the 8800gt at 1920x1200.... w/ and without AA.. i'm a huge res gamer.. so the extra memory is important to me.. that extra memory was the determining factor weather crysis was going to lag w/ my settings or not

i've owned every single 8800 card that was ever made!! LULZ

and the gtx takes the crown for me hands down.. which is why i went back to 8800gtx instead of gts 512
