If anything, its underpriced, given the performance of the new GTS is not significantly higher than the GT.
thats what i was afraid of.

trotter i was wondering the same thing...

Yeah im thinking the gt's are not gonna drop in price, i wouldint be suprised if they go up since theyre out of stock and in high demand. The old gts may actually drop under the price of the gt's.

Yes, anything supporting 512 is on the 256-bit memory bandwith and is G92.

I've noticed them going for $230 + on ebay, so I can sell it for around that and actually make a profit.

Also, why is everyone even assuming that the 8800gts is made for people to upgrade from an 8800gt. Calm down people, this card is not made for 8800gt owners.

Nice, the xfx version looks way better, and look at the fan on that thing, its huge. Should run cooler and quieter.

Yup im sure most of us are going with the gt untill the 9's comes out. Even then, they should be cheaper and an 8800gt sli setup could be more affordable and last awhile.
