ya, same thing.. just a binned higher.. cherry picked gtx's for higher clock speeds

i think i'll be buying a 2nd 8800gtx in the near future

after i purchase an intel quad again

haha that'll mark me owning 4 8800gtx's in a lifetime... thats 3 too many

perhaps its time to learn the soldering skills so i can volt mod me some 8800gtx's

I just bought a XFI Platinum Champion....I used to have a XFI back in the day and miss the good sound.

Got it installed yesterday and omg its a world of difference. next I'm going to change out the opamp(s) for a better audiophile one and get on some better caps.

Should be sounding as good as many 250-300 quid studio quality sound cards after that.
